It would be an awesome addition to have a "cover" or weatherproof enclosure so these units could be mounted outdoors on the incoming line to be able to collect sprinkler data as well.
We just wanted to let you know that StreamLabs is currently working on creating a cover/enclosure that would allow both the Monitor and Control to be installed outdoors. Thank you for your feature request and feedback!
I use my outdoors for main in FL no freeze. I removed cover and used 100% silicone all along seam, then cover reset lightly, so you can still reset (silicone is pliable rubber) and around power plug making it hermetically sealed. Then cover it with a clear juice jug cut out so it fits around it so It never gets wet anyway.
Better this way then Steamlabs not warranting it from being in elements is what I figure, it should go well beyond 2 years. If you don't want the silicone route then cover it up and use jug trick with openings pointed down if possible. A conformal coating of the pc board would have made it more robust to water.
Very good too know, it may interest you to know I did a video on Youtube on this unit: https://youtu.be/V9nsjEJ16Ms
