    enclosures for outdoor sensors

    What are people using for outdoor temp sensors to protect them from the weather but also give as acurate of a reading as possible?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    A home made temperature pagoda is one of the more accurate ways house outdoor temp sensors. Here's my old pagoda made from plastic bowls.

        Is your wind device one from Hobby Boards? I have one of those coming.

        How well does it work? I forgot that has one in it.

          The wind "device" has a temperture sensor built in but it's off as much as +15 degrees in the sun. That's why a pagoda is important for semi accurate measurements.

            But if I have a place outdoors that is not in the sun and open, that should work just as good. Correct? On the North side of my shed, it never gets in the sun, ever. So if I mount the sensor on that side of the shed in a open style case I should be pretty accurate. Do you agree?

              That's probably as accurate as you can get. The concept behind the pagoda is it's normally mounted high were the air can move around it.
