What do people do to encase devices like relays that might not come with a case?
Specifically I have a couple Zooz Zen31's, and i dont want to leave all the wires exposed.
I thought about reaching out to "Makes by Mike" who makes awesome wall-mounts for tablets...but i think it would be too expensive to be worth it. There must be a cheap, and visually attractive way to do this kind of thing.
I had a lot of suggestions until you said that. :grinning
I have used a few of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RTYYHK7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
hahah it doesnt have to be "PRETTY"....just not a bundle of duct tape!
These looks really cool...but a bit pricey for what they are. I mean $10 for a piece of plastic to cover up my $20 smart switch?
$10 for a 2-pack. Some people have mentioned using bar soap plastic cases.
oh yea, didnt see it was a two pack. Not as bad.
I like this, not sure how i didnt think of it. Can easily put a decent cover on it too with plain vinyl faceplate.
just go to a library with a 3d printer, or buy one
When it comes to these issues.... a 3D printer is your best friend.
This is the finished product for a temp/humidity/lux sensor in one of the cases I linked.
If I do any more, I like the electrical/junction box suggestion.
