I mount a portable BLE Weathermeter on a tripod outside my tent when climbing. There is a flaw in my current setup, whenever the Weathermeter go to sleep I have to physically go out into a often cold and windy night to turn the device on manually to collect wind, humidity, temperature and other weather data back to the iPhone.
So my idea is to mount a wireless button that does not lose connection to my iPhone (or manual wireless switch) onto the device, thats why i've ended up in this forum. If this works, I could turn the device on without having to leave the comfort of the tent and my cozy, warm sleeping bag. A major improvement to this system, haha.
So my questions to you who own a SwitchBot is: could this work? or does it need WIFI/internet access to work properly? And with some modifications, how good would you think it would hold up against cold and sometimes wet environments? I guess the electronics is pretty basic, so if I sealed it abit it would probably work?
