I’m hoping you can help recommend to me a good power outlet that works with SmartThings and provides energy usage data so that I can use it to set up an alert for when my washer is done with the cycle. Unfortunately, I’ve thus far bought several that advertise “Monitor energy usage” but don’t actually have power monitoring and are just simple on/off switches. I’ve also found some that have power usage in their native app (such as the Sengled outlets) but don’t when linked to SmartThings.
I’ve tried switching the device type in the IDE to “Zigbee Metering Plug” but that didn’t make a difference. I’d rather not spend $40-$50
I was able to set one up pretty reliably with the dryer using vibration and the multipurpose sensor, but that doesn’t seem to work as well for my washer.
