@bmmiller I just hooked up the Aeon Gen 6 to the washing machine and my wattage was anywhere from 4 to 72 when running the wash. I set the app up this way but it never sent me a notification. I am using your device type as well and I noticed every 5 minutes it polls and reports unless there is a no change. When my wash stopped, it said 1kw and never reported again.
I wouldn’t use my device type as it got replaced by one that had proper documentation made by @jpansarasa and I didn’t bother updating mine. Looks like he even has a new version with added functionality. Yay!
I have the aeon heavy duty power sensor physically installed like you show above and linked to my hub using the device driver supplied by @jpansarasa. However, I am not getting regular updates on the power usage.
(I also have the light duty one attached to the washer and it works as expected.)
If I look under the Recently tab of the device in the iOS SmartThings app, all I see are entries that are triggered by pressing the Refresh button on the Right Now tab. Do I need to do anything special to get regular messages to show up with the current energy values on their own without me pressing the refresh button? (In the settings, I have the report interval set to 1 (minute)).
I just set this app up and it appears to be working. I did the first load of laundry and was notified when it finished. However, I enabled both Push ash and SMS notifications. I received the SMS notification however no one linked to my smartthings account received the push notification. Any idea on what could be the cause?
This is a v2 hub that was a clean install. I am receiving notifications from other smartapps, such as one for my door lock.
The default behavior of the code reads that if you specify an sms number, it doesn’t send an app alert. If you want both but aren’t familiar with what change to male to the code, I am happy to post it tomorrow. (I also added a second sms number to mine and changed it to do anything that is specified for the times that I want both sms and app alert.)
Looking for any suggestions for why my set up is not working. I am using the DSC06106 switch with bmmiller Laundry Monitor (Latest from github). I am using elasticdev : Aeon Labs Smart Switch (2nd Edition) for the switch handler but I have also tried the default as well as the bmmiller hanlder as well. The device is monitoring usage properly in the log and drops to 0 but I never get an alert. I tried adjusting the wattage levels between 0 and 8. I also tried removing the device and smartapp and re-adding but it still hasn’t helped. Any suggestions for what I am missing?
I am using push. I also tried SMS but it did not work either. I do get push notifications from Smart Alarm as well as Rule Machine.
This morning I set up ‘Yet Another Power Monitor’ and as I am writing this I just got an alert through that for the washer so that should work for me. Still not sure why I couldn’t get your app working properly but thank you for the reply.
I’m asking about time, not the wattage. There is a second setting immediately below the minimum running wattage setting. If your washer hits 0, you should probably go with 2 on the minimum wattage, and something like 60 for the time setting.
