I’m slowly putting the last pieces of automatic watering system together and one of the things to solve is boxing.
Since it will stay outdoor, I need to protect it from rain. I have wooden box like one on the attached images. I wanted to set metal roof and put this box just below it. However, since wind can still bring a bit of rain from sides, I’ll repaint wooden box with water resistant color. Also, the edges slides in will be isolated with insulation tape. Do you thing this will be ok?
The advantage of using wooden box will be that Arduino/relay/any board can be easily screwed in it, no need for hot glue or similar stuff. Also, wooden box can be easily screwed to any carrier or pillar.
Does anyone have experience with using such boxes and did it work?
