I have a unique setup where I’d like to be notified when my utility power is restored during an outage. My main panel is equipped with an interlock switch that I manually flip over when I use my generator during a power outage. My entire main panel is then back fed from the generator. The utility power main breaker is shut off during this time, so I’m looking for something that gives me the ability to receive a notification when the main utility power is restored. Here’s what I’ve come up with, but I feel like there’s got to be a better way:
Use this sensor that wraps around the main leg coming into the house before the breaker that monitors when power is restored.
If my goal was to simply hear an audio alert when power is restored, then this would be all I’d need. But if I’m not home, this really doesn’t help me.
So then I found this noise sensor: https://www.amazon.com/Ecolink-Wireless-Detector-existing-FF-ZWAVE5-ECO/dp/B071Z8NM8N
This would give me the ability to receive an alert when the sound sensor detected the power restored sensor beeping.
However, I feel like there has to be a product/configuration I could use that would accomplish this is a single unit, not a domino effect of processes.
If anyone has any suggestions at all, I’m all ears. Thanks!
