Connected Devices and Fixtures
When talking about inspecting a home's electrical system, "connected devices and fixtures" refers to ceiling fans, hard-wired light fixtures, receptacles, light switches and other, similar devices.
A home inspector is required to check out a representative sampling of the connected devices and fixtures in the home. A thorough inspector will visually inspect and test all that he has access to. That means looking to see that these devices are wired correctly, are grounded properly, are operational and meet suggested safety standards. He'll also check and test that ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets and receptacles are properly and safely wired and operational, such as near sinks and other water features.
