Before I start, please feel free to point out that I should not be
doing this if I don't know what I'm doing, and it is sound advice
which I may follow. However, I might be tempted....
I've currently got a taped off live mains cable in the hall (well out
of the way, insulated, terminated in a junction box) which was
previously used as the supply for a burglar alarm (no longer
required). This is fed from one of the mains circuits in the house
(presume it is a spur).
Wife would like a couple of external sockets just outside the front
door, and reusing this spur would seem the obvious answer. I presume
I would need some sort of isolating switch inside the house, and
(obviously) properly approved sockets on the outside.
Is there anything else which I would need to take account of?
