Waterproof light Switches FAQs

 

Can You Put a Light Switch Outside?

Absolutely! Outdoor light switches are designed to withstand the elements and provide reliable control for outdoor lighting. 

Now, you can manage your garden or patio lights effortlessly without compromising safety or functionality.

What is an Outdoor Light Switch?

An Outdoor Light Switch is a specialised switch designed for exterior use. 

It’s constructed with weather-resistant materials to ensure durability and protection against the impact of outdoor conditions, allowing you to easily control outdoor lighting.

 

What is a Weatherproof Switch?

A Weatherproof Switch, also known as an Outdoor Switch, is designed to resist the effects of weather, moisture, and dust. 

It’s constructed with materials that provide a barrier against these elements, ensuring reliable performance and longevity in outdoor areas.

 

How to Install an Outdoor Light Switch?

 

 Installing an Outdoor Light Switch is a straightforward process:

  • Turn Off Power: Ensure the power is turned off at the circuit breaker to guarantee a safe installation.
  • Choose Location: Select a suitable location for the switch, preferably sheltered from direct exposure to rain.
  • Drill Holes: If necessary, drill holes for mounting screws according to the switch's design.
  • Connect Wires: Connect the wires to the designated terminals on the switch, following the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Secure the Switch: Attach the switch to the chosen location using the provided screws.
  • Restore Power: Turn the power back on at the circuit breaker and test the switch to ensure proper functionality.

 

What’s an IP Rated Switch?

An IP (Ingress Protection) Rated Switch is a measure of the switch's resistance to solids and liquids. 

The rating consists of two digits, with the first indicating protection against solids and the second against liquids. 

For outdoor light switches, a higher IP rating, such as IP66, signifies superior protection against dust and water, ensuring reliable performance in various weather conditions.
