While many smart plugs will technically function outside, most would eventually be damaged by moisture or varying temperatures. There are some models specifically designed with limited weather resistance, like the TP-Link Smart Outdoor Plug, but now Wyze has an alternative that works with its ever-growing ecosystem.
The Wyze Plug Outdoor is IP64 weather-resistant, which means it's protected against both dust and water particles. However, the plug isn't fully waterproof, so it can't be situated anywhere that could collect water (e.g. on the ground).
You can also set the plug to run on various automations like dusk-to-dawn sensing, vacation mode, custom schedules and triggers based on other devices. Unlike most smart plugs, the Wyze Plug Outdoor includes energy monitoring. You’ll be able to receive alerts when energy thresholds are exceeded and view consumption history in the Wyze app.
The Wyze Plug Outdoor includes two 15-amp outlets you can control independently. It’s rated IP64 for protection against water and fine particles like dust. The device also supports energy monitoring, 300 ft of Wi-Fi range.
You can control the Plug Outdoor with physical buttons, voice control via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, or through the Wyze app for Android and iOS. Once it's officially released next month, the retail price will be $10.99.
