Low temperature operation of Leviton VPT24-1PZ




I recently purchased a Leviton VPT24-1PZ timer switch to operate some outdoor lights.  The concern I have is that in our home, the switch that controls the outdoor lights is located inside the garage area and not in the home itself.  The garage is attached to the house and is insulated, but is not heated.  The switch is therefore fully protected from the elements (rain, snow, etc) but will potentially be exposed to temperatures down to -25C or so.  Will the switch operate in sub-freezing temperatures?  I am less interested whether the LCD display will continue to operate properly, and more interested in whether the timer will continue to turn lights on and off.
