Cool Electrical

On exterior lighting, what is general rule of thumb for location of wiring boxes beside entry doors (both front & patio)? I have heard 66" up from threshhold, but that seems low to me. Your assistance would be appreciated.

Depends on the light. i like to put the box about 12" below the top of the door and this puts the top of a carrage light about even with the top of the door. it's mostly personal preference. as long as there is enough room below any soffits for the light to fit and it is astheticaly pleasing to the eye then it should be ok
