I would like to install a keypad outdoors to control my system inside for outdoor speakers. It is a pain having to go inside for all control and the remote only works if the patio door is open. So, knowing that there must be people that have solved this dillema, looking for suggestions on a good outdoor keypad or solution that includes an outdoor box and a regular kepyad to control the sytem, including cd changer. At this point, price is not an issue, as I am looking to see what's out there and the price ranges.


I've thought about the Niles intellipad mounted outside in Niles' outdoor box. Anyone doing this?


Thanks very much in advance!

I have not had much luck with X-10 control pads mounted in weatherproof boxes outside. If I were doing what you want to do, I would put an infared sensor(s) on the outside of the house and use a cheap universal remote to control devices inside. You could keep the remote in a waterproof location outdoors. (or in a plastic bag)


Just a thought.
