Whilst rummaging in a tin of important stuff, I found a usb wifi dongle. Popped it into my testing #raspi and it picks up the house wifi from the garage...

So, the question is, would the detached garage count as an off-site backup location?


@gairsty How close is the garage as if the house caught fire would the fire easily jump from house to Garage,

Not sure if that is a good benchmark though.

I guess also if the house got struck by lightning then while the electrics are connected to the main house it would be via a separate connection on the consumer unit thingy.

@zleap it'll probably be fire-safe, but not power-independent. But that could be solved with a wee UPS... :thinking:
