What would it cost to re-wire 4 BX cables with newer stuff, in a small house (so, not going that far)

 How do I get these 2 wires from an NEC intercom to power up a ring door bell pro? a tranformer?. The ring door bell will replace the NEC intercom.

Part of my basement has 3 light fixtures. They are 2 foot long t12 fluorescent tube bulbs. The older thick ones.
How tricky is it to change them to recessed fixtures? Tia. Maybe I should speak to whacked1's person...

It depends if the end of the cable at the point where it enters the fluorescent fixture can reach where it needs to be to enter the recessed fixture. It could depend on many other things. For example, if the wiring is very old, it can crumble as you work with it. Why do you think it might be tricky?

U referring to my q? I listed the exact bulb type and length...but even after changing to small recessed spot I would have to close up the extra space.

If the ballast is old, it starts to play a nice hum, which means the whole ballast (meaning if the fixture consists of 2-3 ballast in the fixture)needs to be replaced.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
