Hi, I'm making arduino based mw link defroster project. It will be placed in remote location, as a control of heaters that will defrost mw link radomes. We will have alarm monitoring of device state thru existing client network (just alarm outputs from relays). Question is should I make arduino running all the time measuring temp and humidity and starting heaters or make it to start only in winter when device is needed obviously.
My dilemma is should I communicate with remote site device only to switch it on for additional cost of hardware vs running it all the year long, without additional cost of hardware.
I'm new to the forum so forgive me if i didn't follow some of your protocols. Tnx
