hi all, the question is or actually the plan is:
I am installing florescent undercabinet lighting. The plan is to wire the outlets that these lights will plug into to a switch, a motion switch.
Is it ok to hook flo lights up to a motion light system?

Thanks

Probably yes, check the instructions to make sure there are no restrictions.

Also, watch your total load. Some motion switches may have a lower rating when controlling inductive loads (ballasts) than they do when controlling incandescent lights.
