Outdoor sensors for DSC

I'd like to put a wireless door switch or PIR in the pool area, and probably put it in a new partition... Is there anything available that works outdoors? I'm guessing I'll have to DIY some type of waterproof box or just sacrifice a sensor every Summer.

Along the same lines, does anyone place a smoke detector in the attic or unheated garage?

For their standard Power Series product line, DSC doesn't really make an outdoor rated wireless motion. They do make one for the NEO product line.

Smoke detectors in garages and attics are a bad idea for a number of technical and practical reasons. Those spaces are normally protected with heat detectors.
