So here is my crazy idea. I'm an electronics engineer
and I have electrical
issues on my boat and its got me dreaming. My electrical
issues are nothing big just speaker wire ran all over and a tired old electrical panel. Same of my switches are going out as a little wiggle is needed to get it to work.
I'm considering designing a circuit board to replace my switch panel, but also to do more. I would like to include a clock, GPS
, temperature sensor, carbon monoxide sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, remote
control for lights, voltage levels, security
sensors and do all this in a small little box. Perhaps Bluetooth so my iPad
could update my website for remote
monitoring, mapping, theft etc. apps then could turn on lights, fans etc.
The entire space that my switch panel is mounted on could then be reused for storage
etc. Is this a bad idea? Corrosion
? I have made circuit boards with gold plating etc. reliability
issues? What's your take?
