    All light switches are IP rated of some sort. Did they specify a particular IP rating? Are they to be mounted outside in the weather?

    outside in the weather. when i ask him to specify he just tells me to look here and there. i'll probably end up telling him to look himself.

    Yeah, let them know from the go-get that you're not interested in doing their donkey work for them, given half a chance consultants and architects alike will offload as many of their headaches onto other as they think they'll get away with.
