Use Wifi bulbs, can do whatever combination (or colour) you want.

In part, that depends on whether you have wiring properly installed already. I installed a pole lamp several years ago. There was no wiring so it involved tapping into existing wiring in the garage; drilling a hole through the garage wall and digging a trench and running the wiring through a conduit buried 18 inches deep to the location of the lamp. Then I poured a little concrete and set bolts into it at the correct spacing to mount the pole lamp. It's a bit of work but nothing super difficult if you have (or can borrow) the tools. YMMV

I'm not sure where this "it's cold, electronics won't work" stuff comes from. I've seen it in many areas, i.e. using Wyzecam WIFI cameras outside.

I agree. I just never thought it through until I wrote my earlier response lol.repatch wrote: ↑Sep 25th, 2018 4:16 pmI'm not sure where this "it's cold, electronics won't work" stuff comes from. I've seen it in many areas, i.e. using Wyzecam WIFI cameras outside.
Does you car function when it's cold? It's got a ton of electronics in it. Yes, they are "designed" for cold, but most of the components are specced very similarly to what's in a regular consumer item.
Most electronics are true solid state. Part of that is they don't really care about temperature (within reason, heat can cause issues if you exceed the thermal budget). Yes, there are certain elements that are affected quite badly by temp, for example batteries are a known issue in extreme cold. Another area are LCD screens stop working (but don't get damaged).
Think about what's in a "smart bulb". It's an LED power supply (small transformer, and IC, some caps, diodes, etc), a WIFI module (SOC type chip, some support components) and a bunch of LEDs. There's nothing there that will be affected by "normal" cold. Only thing I'd be concerned with is whether your WIFI router will reach the pole.
