Mostly electrical rather than ST-related, but I’m sure I’m over-engineering this and some tinkerers will have some suggestions.
I recently bought a solar powered address sign, but it’s not quite charging as well as I’d hoped. Couple that with the fact that I want to control when the light was on, and I’m trying to work out where best to put that control.
I’m trying to avoid wall warts if possible (especially since this will be going in my soffit alongside the power for my doorbell camera (which is on a doorbell transformer powered through a Sonoff device in case I need to reboot it).) I wish there were more 120AC => Variable DC converters. I have this one, but it’s 9V.
I know the obvious answer is to ditch this unit and go with something else, but I’m already at this point, and knowledge would carry over to other projects. Any thoughts on how you would do this?
