for USA, Canada and countries using similar 60Hz household electricity suppliesYes, this is a violation of the NEC.

Article 210.6 (A) (1) specifically prohibits luminaires (lighting) operating on a voltage of more than 120 volts between conductors in the following locations:

In dwelling units and guest rooms or guest suites of hotels, motels, or similar occupancies.

A dwelling unit means a home, or in some municipalities any building zoned in a residential area.

<><><><><><><><>

And, if the lighting is installed outside the building:

NEC Article 225.7 covers "Lighting Equipment Installed Outdoors"

225.7(C) tells us that outside branch circuits feeding luminaires can exceed 120V (but not more than 277V) if illuminating the outside areas of industrial establishments, office buildings, schools, stores and other commercial public buildings...

Dwellings (residential properties) are not mentioned as being permissible.IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB

SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY

REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.

If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power

at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND

always use an electrician's test meter having metal-tipped probes

(not a simple proximity voltage indicator)

to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.
