Electricians, what's the easiest way to integrate emergency lighting into a circuit?
Say I have 10 lights (a mix of normal bulkhead lights, interspersed with non-maintained combined emergency lights) that are all operated by a single switch, does this mean that the emergency lighting would turn on every time I switch the other lights off? Would I need to run a permanent live to the emergency lights?
Essentially I want to light a big room and operate the lot with one switch, but have half the lights function as emergency lights. Is this stupid? Should I just have some emergency lights on an entirely separate circuit?
Non maintained emergency lights can be battery powered such that when mains is lost the inbuilt battery powers up the light for a period of time.
They are kept charged by the input mains voltage and are usually off when power is live
