What kind of devices can be installed in a junction box ?

Any hardware store carries an assortment of digital timers, digital dimmers and home automation devices that are intended to be installed directly in a switch and/or receptacle boxes.  What I want to know is what rules govern devices designed to be installed junction boxes ?
Is there an allowable amount of heat than can be dissipated ?

Any help is appreciated.
