Yesterday I started on a project that will (fingers and toes crossed) solve a a simple problem with a device not working as hoped for.
The ACU>RITE indoor/ourdoors wifi temperature sensor and electronic gauge.
We have been using it on the unheated back porch, and because of heat loss from the house into the porch area the outdoor readings are skewed by quite a bit.
Make and mount a wooden hanger on the outside wall of the back porch; make and suspend a weather resistant wooden container around the sensor so that neither heat from the house or sun’s rays will affect readings of the true ambient temperature outdoors. Pallet wood used throughout.
Tomorrow I will be touching up and sanding the hanger and sensor box. I won’t have the painting done, but will go ahead and post pictures of the unfinished answer.
