Well done! I'm impressed with the amount of hardware you were able to cram into that box!

What size is that enclosure?
Looks like one of the standard Lowes or HD PVC junction boxes.

I agree. I'm planning to mold a rubber cap to completelly isolate that nasty exposed conection and make it safe and water proof

Nice work, cool idea with the plug-in-place control box. I like the size of your alarm light. You mention there is a sound alarm, is that part of you PID controller, or did you find a tiny LED light buzzer combo?
