For questions about building & safety regulations as they relate to IoT devices. Consider if your question is a better fit for our Law or Home Improvement Stack Exchange sites.

Use this tag for questions that are about building and safety regulations, especially in the context of designing and installing devices connected to the Internet of Things.

Building codes or regulations vary from location to location, so will be difficult to address well on this site. In addition, your question may be better sited to Law or Home Improvement Stack Exchange.

Be specific about the location, and regulatory context in which you are asking the question. For example, is this a self-install product, qualified installer product, or individual project.

Consider the question check list if your question fits the tag. You can also look at the example questions. If this tag doesn't fit your question have a look below at somehow related tags that might fit your question better.
