Dryer Monitor Device SmartDry

I am just wondering if anyone has used this device. I just ordered it from amazon. I have a electric dryer and the vibration sensors and other methods have not yielded the best results. Hoping this will be the answer.

I like gadgets so I am embarrassed to say I just got one.

Seems to work.

My wife sets the timer on the dryer to 1 hour. Without this gadget the dryer would run for the full hour.

After 15 minutes it says everything is dry.

I go over and everything is dry.

Thanks, I think I am going to order. Just not ready to buy a new dryer but excited to have this alert.

Is there anything like this for the washing machine?

So far so good, we get to shut dryer down 15 minutes early. No smartthings, ifttt or Google Assistant integration yet though, only Alexa and you have to ask it for status. So basically the app alerts you only.

I absolutely love this device. However, it’s smart but dumb. The only shortcomings I have had in the last 6 months are as follows:
Integration limited to Alexa push notification.
The Washing machine triggers false alerts.
Intermittently stop getting alerts.
Andriod - HMI is basic but has general information needed. Inside the settings, you can select the temps for dryness levels and delicate cycles, and Fahrenheit or celsius.
four alerts (push notifications)
Dryness (less dry, dry, very dry)
dryer stopped
delicate load
follow up alerts

IOS - HMI is very similar with some differences. On the home page, you have the same alerts with the exception of follow up alerts. In the IOS app Follow up alerts were moved to the settings page. Where it is also noted follow up use a 3-minute timer (not noted in Andriod). Replacing follow up alerts on the home page is timed dry alerts. You can manually specify the time, this feature is not available on android. The function of setting actual dryness temperature is removed on IOS settings.

I only hope that they combine the features of the two apps and open integration.
