    These are the little volt meters I have in my cases. The come in multiple colors if you search. For mini bolt meter. Each one is off by 0.1-0.2V compared to a multimeter. I use them just so I know that I am getting power when I open the case not for accuracy.

    I forgot to ask this yesterday. Is it harmful to store the controllers and Raspberry Pi in the garage? Curious if the humidity would be a problem.

    That looks like it would work nicely as well. I have this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B017BCXQO6 I just used a 4-core pigtail out of the box and just put a screw cap on it when not monitoring. When I want to check the power I connect the LCD and don't need to open the box since I padlock all my boxes. Here is a picture:

    Someone also had an interest in my CG-1500 vents. The vents I used are: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L3QTZRY and I simply used a hole saw to cut the hole and then the dremel with a sanding drum to remove some of the ridges so it would sit flush on the face of the box. I then just used a fair amount of silicone to seal around the vents. At the bottom of the box you see another opening to draw air in. I used a plastic netting to cover the hole and hot glue to hold it in place that keeps out bugs. I may add the netting to the vents as well to keep out bugs - though I didn't have any issue this year.

    I store all mine in a fairly hot attic. But I keep the electronics in Rubbermaid type tubs with the lids on them. I do have a question/concern about all these firmware batteries that are showing up on the Falcon products. If I remember, I plan to post on the Facebook site to see what David has to say.
    Thanks,

    I just posted on the Falcon forum. I will let you know what they say.
