I would like to be able to control certain automations based on my TV’s power state
- When the TV turns on, turn on the speakers and dim the lights
- Turn on the lights in response to motion unless the TV is on.
- When the TV turns off, turn on the lights
You get the idea. The easiest way I can think to do this is to connect the TV through a smart plug that relays realtime power usage to the hub which can then use that usage information as a condition for automations.
Are there smart plugs that support this functionality? I’m not interested in historical power monitoring or anything fancy like that, I just need the real time reporting to ST.
Thanks in advance.
