I preferred it over the external transformer, and the skinny wiring to it. Plus I liked it being attached already.
Only problem with that if no outlet is close by. Its illegal or should be to string 120 stapled across a garage. With 24v one can use the 18-3 wire to get to the outlet on the ceiling or elsewhere.

I used some pretty long line cords back when it was Imperial Valet controllers.

Exposed line cords are a piker indication.

Some of my locations didn't even have an outlet to plug into.

When I was a young contractor, I rode my Schwinn bike to service calls.

There was always a fallback power source, however piker-ish it was to use it.

I'm sorry, but I don't see how it's any different than a 110 cord plugged in all the time for a toaster, tv, lamp, food mixer, computer or anything else. These ain't mega mansions papa.

Me too. Used to buy my 14/2 in 250' rolls. Used those squeeze 2 prong plugs. No stripping necessary.

I went old-school, and used round rubber line cord, with the flat rubber plugs.
