Don’t know if it’s the same app:

15 (Watt) for start/on/above and 4 (Watt) for stop/off/below.

I measure the power with a powerplug (Neo CoolCam zwave).

There are a few versions of this out in the wild. Like @benerkens said, is hard to know which one you have installed. Can you post a screenshot?

Here’s some screenshots you requested.

I also put a copy some of the log how the power rating.

Ok, the numbers depend on your washer. Unfortunately you will need to observe the cycle and possibly adjust it over a few runs. My washer, for example drops below 3W for about 3 minutes during the normal cycle, so I have it as:

Cycle starts at over 10W
Cycle stops below 3W

Minimum amount below wattage = 5 minutes *

  • It never drops below 3W for more than 5 minutes unless the cycle stopped.

I use a variation of the app you’ve installed.

In your screenshot, last entry was at 4.3 W, what happened after that? Did it go up again or stayed the same?

I am using a HEM in my circuit breaker box and WebCoRE directly. I really need to chart a couple cycles and figure out the best logic because Alexa is getting on my nerves saying the laundry finished 5 times during every load.

Yeah, you can do this in webcore but you might find it easier to do it with a specialized app. There are several floating around and some actually work well lol
