Hi everyone. I couldn’t find answer for my question regarding a reliability of Particle Electron antenna outside under no protection.
My system measures humidity/temperature and transmits the data into Ubidots. No problem, it works great. However, I am about to deploy into the ‘wild’ which will be an urban area without any protection for the antenna (main computer part is inserted into a waterproof box). Now, I wonder where I should put the antenna. I will put likely under the waterproof box, but it will still make the antenna wet.
I purchased another ‘active’ antenna (they are called ‘active’ because it uses batter power.) which is recommended by some people. After several days of testing, I found that the ‘active’ antenna is not a good one (not transmitting fast and reliably), but also an antenna come with Particle Electron is really good. So, I decide to use the Particle antenna.
Please guide me if anyone uses the antenna outside and how it works when it’s wet.
