Just in time for Halloween, I was able to try the Outdoor Switch ($79.95) from iDevices. It's about two to three times the price of traditional indoor smart power switches; but this works outside, which is certainly important for holiday lights and other appliances. You can use the free iDevices app (with Apple Watch extension) to control your switch, as well as the iDevices indoor switch, but for best effect, set up the devices within HomeKit or Amazon Alexa (or both) and use your voice to control your outdoor lights. Of course you can also use scheduling to turn them on or off. You could get creative and use motion sensors to turn on devices, perhaps to scare or entertain trick or treaters!
