How to read an electrical installation diagram?

Answer: the installation diagram does not take into account the exact location of the electrical devices!

The electrical installation diagram represents the electrical circuit of your home. There are several types of wiring diagrams, but the one that is most often found is the so-called "developed" wiring diagram. Note that it does not take into account the exact location of electrical devices, in order to facilitate understanding of the electrical circuit. Different symbols represent, as desired, switches, sockets, lighting lamps, fuses, circuit breakers, etc. In short, all the electrical equipment in the home. A notice on the installation diagram will tell you what each symbol corresponds to, so you can't go wrong. The other types of electrical diagrams are rather reserved for professionals.
