I think I see where most are rated to work down to 32 degrees. I have a few possible outdoor applications and I'm wondering if anyone uses successfully at lower temps. I am aware there's a outdoor plug rated to -4F and I probably could make that work but really like the micro switch(s). I'm in Illinois.

I've had 2 SwitchLincs in my garage for more than 7 years without a problem. It's out of the weather but unheated and it occasionally gets below 32 degrees.

Reason for asking is I put a micro dimmer module in my detached unheated garage. It controls a couple of driveway lights. It works great now but wondering what the experiences have been in colder temps.

I have several devices in unconditioned spaces, protected from direct exposure to rain and snow. In my area, temperatures can range from -15F to 100F. No failures so far.
