So I have my first project all ready to deploy... Or at least I thought I did. I have the code working the way I want it, the relay is controlling the fan properly. Basically everything is golden. Right up to the point that I try and take it off the breadboard and make it permanent. I just can't figure out a good way to connect everything up the way I need it.
Specifically I am using two https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07T7ZR7MS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 as remote sensors that need to be about 5 feet from the Arduino. I tried soldering the wires to the legs, no luck. The joins didn't hold and the wires slid down the legs and shorted each other pretty quickly.
I tried crimp connectors, no luck... How the heck do I reliably connect a piece of wire to these legs so I can install everything?
I feel this shouldn't be that hard, but for some reason I must be missing something easy? I feel like I just need some soldering practice, but is there a better way to do this?
