Morning,
I’ve got a customer who really wants to have two wall lights mounted on their garage wall, easy peasy. She wants to switch the lights on via an exterior switch still simples. But she also wants to be able to switch the lights on from her phone, I’m imagining it’s pretty straight forward and it’s something I’ve done before but the switch has always been indoors. Can anyone recommend a good exterior mounted 1g switch which is Wi-fi compatible? Alternatively I suppose it could be a standard exterior switch but the lights could be Wi-fi compatible if so any good manufacturers/websites to hit.
 
Not aware of a wi-fi switch (that doesn't require a separate hub) that is waterproof, but it seems to me you would need a two way arrangement, using a conventional 2-way outside switch connected to a 2-way indoor wi-fi module or switch. If you had just a wi-fi compatible bulb, it could only respond to the phone if the outside switch is on!

How about a quinetic switch module indoors https://www.quinetic.co.uk/products/wifi-receiver/
and a Quinetic outdoor switch (IP67) https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Produc...MIxNuS8N6W7QIVk2DmCh3-7gzkEAQYBSABEgJZbvD_BwE
