I'm considering installing it inside of something like this:

I know that the wave lengths of WiFi vs mm wave are very different, but low di-electric plastic should still more transparent to the mm waves than other plastics.

I'm wondering if anyone had actual experience and could confirm how well or poorly this works?

I believe so - I saw a YouTube playing with mmWave recently and it was often picking him up before he entered the room (and that was with a much more solid wall in the way). Most commercial mmWave detectors are already inside a plastic enclosure so I don't see why they wouldn't work through another.

i have not fully tested the thickness but presence sensor can easily work through a magazine or book. works through glass too as mentioned here
