How can I determine whether a recessed light fixture is rated for use outdoors? I understand local codes will have a say, but I'm looking for a general purpose answer.
I have a covered, wrap-around porch on my house that I would like to install recessed lighting in. I would assume this is considered a wet location. The wiring is already there as there are two outdoor ceiling fans, so I'm mostly concerned with understanding what sort of specs are required of the actual fixture.
For example: I see this sort of fixture which is labeled as "in damp locations" but does not explicitly call out outdoors/exterior. Conversely I see this fixture which is marked for exterior use, but there is no specific rating that I see.
I guess a related question is whether or not I'm just looking in the wrong place and need to go to a specialty store for this sort of thing?
Edit: This is one side of the porch.
