    Caseta Switches in the Cold

    I know that most if not all Caseta Switches are not meant to be used outdoor in cold climates (down to 32 f). But I’m wondering if anyone out there has tested this?

    I live in the cold Canadian Prairies where we’ll occasionally reach lows of -40 f in the depths of winter. I’d like to place a switch inside my detached garage and pair it with a Pico in the house. Am I insane for even considering it?

    Not insane. If there isn't already I would try packing some insulation around the dimmer. There was one guy here, from Colorado maybe, who was going to try it.

    Might be worth trying. For what it's worth, I've been running an Intermatic timer switch in that spot for a few years without any problems. Bryan
