Beginner Questions

We got a starter set for Christmas and I was able to get it to work with some lamps and with my Google Home Assistant. But I have some questions. Does the Bridge need to be physically attached to the router or can it be wireless through WiFi? 

Can the bulbs in the starter kit be used in outdoor fixtures like garage lighting? We are in a cold climate. If not, are there regular sized bulbs available for outdoor use instead of the large spot bulbs?

Once the Bridge is set up with internet and a timer is set for the bulbs, does it have to be connected to the internet to work? We winter in another state and would like to be able to have our outdoor lights go on and off when we’re gone. But we usually put our internet on “hold” when we’re gone. Is that possible without an internet connection?
