Former robotics engineer converted to web developer and opensource contributor--mostly in Python and PHP. I enjoy automating drudgery and augmenting human decision-making with software.

comment How do I connect a 240 to 110V transformers that measures 55V AC on both the “hot” and “return” wires?
thanks. I'll use a 3-prong to 2-prong adapter and bridge the gap between the input and output grounds with as short a wire as possible or use the case itself.

You can tell if UV is a problem if the exterior edge/side of clothes that you habitually hang in one direction ever seem faded relative to the shadowed interior side. Likewise for furniture or carpeting in the room. Otherwise, any uniform fading you're noticing is simply due to outdoor wear, where you get much greater exposure to UV.

I doubt doors are much protection from smoke or odors. When the doors are opened then closed (presumably daily), the odors in the room at that moment are shut into the closet, even if the room is then aired. Your wardrobe interiors likely smell like your bedroom, in the end, regardless of doors. The only way to keep odors out of clothes is to seal in plastic clothes bags immediately after washing or dry-cleaning...or masking the odors by lining your wardrobe interior with bare cedar.

The transformer output plug is indeed 2-prong (ungrounded). Seller suggested I connect the earth ground separately myself. Yes, the active power supply is likely grounded. The smaller transformer has a metal case and 3-prong output but is labeled as an "isolation transformer." Will research filtering options and try them.

Do doors really discourage moths? Don't moths like crawling into dark places to lay eggs?
