Why You Should Encase Your Nodes



  • Always shield your electronics from the elements. Hurricane Hermine took out its vengeance on my radio.

    I had just built this node and was excited to watch the data come in during the hurricane - I did not put into case. Note to self: always put it in a case.

    EDIT: Just noticed that my google photos link does not appear to show for me. Not sure if it shows for others. Let me know. Trying plain URL:

    @wergeld For some node's some protection against lightning might also be a good idea. Especially for outside weather sensors.

    Yea, I was just in a rush to get data! Storm is up in Georgia but is still trying to kick down our area.

    @wergeld Hopefully there's no serious damage to your house.



  • @TheoL No damage. Water went up about 7 feet on our lake but had another 11 feet to go to threaten our property. Biggest flooding was to the south of us. We did have a fun time hiding out in our laundry room during tornado flying up to the east of us. Also, I do not think the radio is dead - hooked it by accident to my Uno testing board and it was transmitting just fine. Love these things - very tough.
