true working temperatures of switches
« on: December 04, 2011, 03:34:48 pm »

Was looking at putting a VRI06-1LZ out on my porch (in weatherproof box of course) to run some outdoor light on the covered porch.  The only thing that I worry about is that the leviton specs say operating temp is 0-55c   (it does get below freezing where I am (maybe 10f).  Anyone else have any zwave light switches in outside cold with/without any problems?
