    Waterproofing Pico remotes

    I'd like to mount a Pico Audio remote outside on the wall of my house on my deck.

    Has anyone successfully managed to waterproof a pico remote and mounted it outside?

    I was thinking of wrapping the remote in a "Saran-like" material and then placing it in a Claro mounting place.

    Just a thought.

    Are you trying to avoid going with a conventional weatherproof cover? I don't think Lutron offers any solution for this but I have seen devices used with traditional flip style covers.

    We use these with the wall plate adapter often. Never had an issue. We usually use clear silicon around the edges to keep the water out.

    This was a project that got scrapped by Lutron. With Sonos and others now readily partnering, and LaunchPort adding directly to covers- I would hope this might make a come-back. Far more requests in my experience for weater resistant Picos than night light Picos.

    Hi, did you ever try the saran idea to waterproof a Pico? I was considering the same thing and curious if it worked...

    I have access to some Parafilm, which is a bit more durable and malleable for a application like this.

    Perhaps something like this:

    No experience of using it this way but it might be viable - if it works it should be quite a bit more robust than plastic wrap
