Tamper Resistant Electrical Outlet
In 2008 the National Electrical Code® (NEC) was revised to require tamper-resistant receptacles in new homes. Using spring-loaded shutters that close the contact openings, or slots, of the electrical outlet, both springs must be compressed at the same time by the metal prongs of the plug. So the shutters will not open when a child attempts to insert an object into only one contact opening, and there is no contact with electricity.
A Tamper Resistant Electrical Outlets generally does not look different. But you'll know it's a tamper resistant outlet because at first, it feels difficult to push a plug into it.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) Outlet
CFCI receptacles are designed to automatically and instantly switch off when an electrical fault is detected. While they cannot remove all risk of electric shock or fire, ground fault circuit interrupters, when working properly, significantly reduce the risk of serious injury and fires. The National Electrical Code (NEC) requires GFCI outlets in places such as bathrooms, garages, kitchen counters, crawl spaces and unfinished basements, near wet bars / sinks, near laundry sinks, near hot tubs/spas, etc.
