Waterproof remote housing


#81

Great! It’s really nice to be able to swich on the waterpump at the last moment when everything is closed so it’s not running out of water too long. I used this https://www.conrad.ch/fr/commutateur-master-c7486-1-pcs-1435736.html connected in the channel 2 of my receiver.

i connected the switch directly to the power button (parallel without removing the switch)
and glue it with hot glue
on the outside I glue ring of metal

ring of metal


#83

I see. That is pretty clever!
The thumb control doesn’t need to be protected against water?


#84

there is only a magnet, a spring and a small sensor inside
a drop of glue on the sensor and wires and that’s it


#86

Ok so I’m having trouble wiring my Hall effect sensor to my remote it’s not working with the magnets. Can anyone help me.

@pacificmeister
wouldn’t be better to have a separate section for advertisement? Or ask for sponsorship for who want to advertise?
I see manufacturers already started to recognize this community and these kind for advertisements seems not aligned with the purpose of the DIY forums.


#97

Can you release the code for the screen because I’m using the same one and just need some help with code


#98

sorry it’s not open-source.


#99

Hi @Eileen , would it be possible to get a test/demo unit out to one or more of the guys here as I think that would go a long way in convincing others the remote control is worth the money.

Is it possible to dedicate one button or the top trigger to act as an on/off button for something like a waterpump or a light?

it’s a good idea. I will advise our engineer in next version. Thanks for your advice.
