Use Indoor Modules in the Great Outdoors

Very few X10 modules are designed for outdoor use. Protecting the module from the weather is key to extending its life.

If you’re using a lamp or appliance module to control outdoor lighting, fountains, or other equipment, you’ll have to be clever about how you install and protect the module from the weather. Currently, no modules are rated for outdoor use, so the first thing to accept is the fact that any module you choose to use outdoors will succumb to the elements eventually. For that reason, use an inexpensive module that you don’t mind replacing every once in a while. How often you need to replace it will depend on how severe your local climate is and how good a job you do shielding the module from the elements.
