Current or Sound Sensor to Trigger Actions for Washer & Dryer?


There are a couple of scenarios that I am thinking about where I would like to detect sound or curent changes:

  • Washer/Dryer stops - play alert on sonos or text me
  • TV gets turned on - dim lights
  • etc

Any devices out there to do this?

Thanks for info. I am not a dev so I was hoping there was something more plug-and-lay out there. In addition to laundry I would use it for my 3D printer and RC battery charging setup. Lots of uses for me at least.


There are other ways to approach the TV scenario:

As for the plugs, I would think the Aeotec smart energy meter would do it, but might require custom code.
