I have Smartthings Hub and want to get the status of my generator.
The generator has an actuator panel with lights to indicate various statuses. What I want to monitor is
- Generator is Running – Which there is a light 12v = On, 0V = Off
- Building is on Generator Power - Which there is a light 12v = On, 0V = Off
- Commercial Power is available. – which there is a light 12v = On, 0V = Off
The lights run on 12 - 24 volts DC.
So I would have a fortrezz mimo2+ monitoring the first two lights and a mimo lite to monitor the 3rd.
If there is another Device that would make measuring inputs easier please advise.
When 1 or 2 or both above changes (light is on) I want to get an email or text to notify me . On 3, when it goes off, I want a notification of this.
The app would need to monitor the ports and if Commercial power is back on, the Generator Switch has swapped back to Commercial Power, or the Gen set is off, notifications would be sent.
Is there something standard or would an app need to be written?
