I have an (outdoor) septic pump I want to monitor and I’m looking for ideas. I bought a GE/Jasco smart outdoor outlet hoping it might include a current monitor (didn’t unsurprisingly) but it also doesn’t even send a status as far as whether the load is active or not, it can only control the outlet.
Does anyone know of a way to monitor at least the activity of a connected load? I’ve found indoor-only solutions and an iDevices device that does what I want but with no programmatic interface that I can see.
If you haven’t had a septic pump, these things are a pain. If a line is clogged or a $20 float switch goes out it can destroy a $1500 pump (with install). If I know it’s running too much I can simply unplug it and fix the issue.
