I know the first thing I’m going to hear is “WebCore” and I’m not opposed to using it I just want to see if there is already a SmartApp out there that will already do what I’m looking for before I spend/waste time trying reinventing the wheel so to speak
Anyway, My HVAC air handler is in the basement, there’s a small pump on the floor that pumps out the water/humidity from the coil. Occasionally the line that’s connected to the pump will clog, whether it be from schmutz or a bug making a nest, and the pump will run and run but no water leaves, eventually leading to it over flowing and if I don’t catch it early enough, water all over the place. Not enough to cause major damage but enough to tick me off.
What I’m looking to do is plug the pump into a power monitoring plug, increasing my zigbee mesh along the way, and have it alert me if the pump is running for more that X amount of minutes continuously. This will let me know its time to break out the air compressor and blow out the lines.
