Arrrgh, these washing machine pistons are driving me mad. I’ve been fooling around with webcore and a metering plug for ages to alert me of my washing machine’s completion. All I REALLY need to do is read the state of the green “completed” LED indicator. That light only comes on at the end. Badaboom.
What are the options here? Can I solder the LED connection to a z-wave device to measure current? Or is there a little photo sensor I can duct tape to the front of the LED?
This would be SO much easier than fiddling with the smart plugs.
