Searching for 'outdoor' devices

#1 Post by obod0002c » 12 Sep 2019, 08:08

Are there any devices you know of which are suited more for an outdoor usage than the ones known for indoor?
I know, a power plug isn't really made for rain but this one would be located under a roof.

Something like this, also because it offers two channels, would be really great - without the unwanted cloud of course:

'Fake' stones don't fit at the place I want to use it.

just some outdoor controls that should work although BME reports humidity of 100% and/or freezing temperatures

Read carefully technical description of this contraption

Check carefully the pictures and check what is meant with IP44 (dust/water resistance)

Best bet is to enclose this in a box, but then start with a std Wemos or Other and a couple of relais in a watertight box specced at IP65 minimum, that is the grade minimum required for outdoor usage.

The stuff you is just good for indoors or well sheltered.

Again you did not explain your need so if it is a sheltered usage ok.

But I don’t think anyone has it so no guarantee that on opening you’ll find the ESP you are looking for

Success in your quest

thanks a lot for your good advices.

It's outdoor but sheltered or the other way round.
There's a circuit breaker and we have been using the sockets for some years now for timer switches and irrigation systems and inflatable santas :lol:

Teckin two sockets 'outdoor' plug (TYWE2S, ESP8285) seems to work fine with ESPEasy
Tested: ESP_Easy_mega-20191127_normal_ESP8285_1M.bin

Lower LED (blue) = GPIO 4
Upper LED (green) = GPIO 5

Left socket = GPIO 12
Right socket = GPIO 14
