I have a Generac generator to power the house during utility company outages.
I would like to know the state of the Generator: ON or OFF.
I would like to get an alert when this state changes.
I thought the easiest way would be to use the outlet on the Generac itself: it is powered only when the device is running.
I assume this requires some kind of polling of a device like a smart plug plugged into the Generac, which could generate (no pun intended) the required alert when the state of the device changes (online/offline).
Is there any easy solution to implement this??
