I’m looking for a smart socket that can be suitably used outside. In particular, I want the socket to control my garage overhead light and my porch light. Although these are both outside, they’re not directly exposed to the weather. The garage light, is covered on all sides, except the bottom and the porch light is inside a cavity inside the overhang. This is Chicago though, so it can get quite cold in the winter. Also, the socket has to work with OpenHab2, of course.

This could be a solution (although, I don’t know how well they can deal with low temperatures…)

Thanks, but I was hoping to avoid hacking hardware. I don’t mind that hacking software, but hardware is a bit much.
