Fibaro relay without a switch for Porch Light



Hi all,


A quick question as I'm starting to add more Fibaro devices to my system. 


I have a porch light which I would like to control via Fibaro.


Currently I have an outdoor socket from a fused spur inside the house. I have a plug in that outside socket which is wired upto a light sensor and from there goes to my porch light. I would like to remove the light sensor as it rarely works and replace it with a Fibaro relay. The outside socket is always 'on' so I don't need a switch for the relay. I would like to put in a waterproof inline connector where the light sensor is/was and then place a Fibaro relay in the porch near the light. (under a pitched vaulted roof). 


Can this be done?


Regards, James.
