Trying to install winter light for my coop.
I am planning to use 12v LED strip light. Do I need to use indoor or outdoor wires? The unit will be under a covered roof. But it will get cold in winter.
The current is less than 1 amp.
Thanks.

If you are running electrical wires they have to be outdoor rated. Those are the NEC legal requirements. You will also want to make sure your strip lights are outdoor rated. Indoor ones are not designed to withstand weather conditions. Even under an the eaves they would be suspectible to moisture.
