  • In our jurisdiction, outside electric outlets require an "In-Use" cover. It is designed to allow for cables to be plugged in and provide weather protection. At Home Depot, search "Red Dot In use heavy duty outlet cover". The covers even provide a padlock tab. Your plug cannot be disconnected by soemone else.

    It fastens on to an existing electric box and includes gaskets and a hinged cover. Available with clear or opaque cover.

    1-Gang Universal In-Use Weatherproof Cover, Vertical/Horizontal Extra-Duty Cover, From the Home Depot Canada site Model # CKPM-W-CN Store SKU # 1000856799

    Something like this would provide a weather resistant space and security for a device.

  • Digikey part number is S5751-10-ND. May be less expensive if you need a lot. Otherwise Sparkfun is the place to order for small quantities.

No public wish lists :(
