Power monitor

(Andy Cole) #1

Is there a sensor that can be used to detect if power to an appliance stops? I.e to monitor a fridge/freezer.

The standard SmartThings Plug will do this. Where in the world are you from and someone might be able to suggest some cheaper options?

Problem with standard plug is that it can’t report power failure when it looses power, unless you constantly poll the device waiting for no response :frowning:

How about a dumb relay connected to a smart dry-contact (potential free) sensor?
