Outside or Inside controllers

This may be obvious, but is the differance betwee an outdoor controller and an indor controller is that the outdoor controler is water proof?

Example: If one purchased and indoor water controller, could one use it outside located in the garage? I only ask because some products I have purchase indicate indoor and they mean inside where it is warm not in the garage where it is cold during the winter months.

Outdoor = 'rain-tight' enclosure with a built in transformer intended to be connected to electrical conduit
Indoor = plain (not rain-tight) enclosure with a plug-in transformer
