Need to install a regular line voltage switch in the same electrical box as a low voltage light switch? See your options below.
Here, a line voltage rocker switch is mounted next to a low voltage Touch Plate ultra device with 4 buttons in a divided electrical box. Both Touch Plate Innova and Ultra series switches fit into a Decora switch plate opening.
Note: Leviton's rocker switch is the best color match to Touch Plate.
These devices fit rocker plates.
IMPORTANT: Be sure your box has a divider so there is no chance of the line voltage wiring coming in contact with the low voltage wiring.
The white, ivory and brown despard toggle and trigger switches all match each other, so no need to worry that the finishes won't match each other.
Note that the line voltage toggle sits in an up/down or on/off position, while the wider low voltage toggle switch rests in the center position (as shown), and is momentarily flipped up or down when being switched on and off.
Low voltage 1081 toggle switches are available in white, ivory and brown.
Putting these line and low voltage toggles in the same switch plate won't be a problem since the finishes are near perfect matches.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Low voltage and line voltage devices must be separated by a partition. You can either add a partition to your current box or use this divided box for line and low voltage.
Once divided, you can mount low voltage electrical devices - such as a phone jack or old low voltage light switch - next to a line voltage switch.
