5.0 out of 5 stars Unique application for Pelican 1010 case, June 26, 2013
This review is from: Pelican 1010 Micro Case, Black with Clear Lid (Electronics)
My use for the 1010 was to weatherproof an alarm keypad. I spray painted the inside, in order to hide the keypad from view. The assembly is mounted next to my garage side entry door, and is used to un-latch the door or the gate to the backyard (Via the automation controller).
Before starting the project, I contacted the manufacturer regarding possible long term UV damage; I was told that their enclosures have been used for years in similar outdoor applications.
The pad has been exposed to the elements for over five years without failure (There is some slight yellowing). An identical keypad mounted on the front porch, without the box, failed after 4 years.

A very innovative idea.
I used to install alarm systems, and this would have come in handy for the few times I installed keypads outside.

I am glad that you liked my application. Weatherproof keypads are much too pricy for most projects. Incidentally, there is a magnetic switch inside the box which is used to switch on the porch light after dark.
Those boxes are ideal for protecting all sorts of delicate equipment from the elements.
