Hi all - I would like to get a SMS alert whenever my sump pump runs so I can keep an eye on it. The PVC water pipe shakes a bit when it kicks on, so I thought I would strap a ST Multisensor on it. I created a rule that says to use the Vibration Sensor and have it set to text me when it sense vibration. However there doesn’t appear to be enough vibration. I have to shake the pipe a fair amount in order for it to trigger, which is far more of a shake than it gets from the sump pump on its own.
Is there a way to make it more sensitive? If not, perhaps there is a better type of sensor and/or approach for detecting this?
