I'm looking for suggestions for exterior, battery-powered, flush-mount "switches" (scene controllers? remotes?). Note that these are not physical switches, and will not be attached to any wiring.
I've got both Zigbee & Z-Wave repeaters near each of the "switch" locations, so either protocol is fine.
I've got 3 existing remote switches (wireless remote control switch ip67, 433Mhz) that are mounted outside to manage a string of exterior lights (< 15A). They are cheap, fast, and reliable, and I had hoped to control them with HE via a Broadlink RM Pro+, but the Broadlink IR & RF controller doesn't support the rolling code ("encryption") used between the switchplates & the receiver, so they've got to go.
I'll probably replace the existing receiver with something like an Aeotec Nano, mounted inside the junction box for one of the lamps.... but it seems to be hard to find a good outdoor-rated remote controller that looks like a switch.
Has anyone used Lutron Picos outside -- for example, on a vertical wall with almost no wind/rain protection?
