Rule machine hysteresis


(pascal) #1

I’m looking to have the humidifier in our bedroom turn on when the humidity is below 40 until it reaches 45, then turn off.

what is the best way to go about this? I can write a smart app for it, though it seems that rule machine might be able to do this already.

I was going to try two rules in rule machine, unfortunately smart plugs don’t show under the capabilities to select for a rule - power does - though I wanted to use that to see if it was empty (has auto shutoff)

I would like a rule:
if humidity <= 40% and plug is off then on
if humidity > 45% then set plug off

and the last:
if outlet is on and power = 0 then notify me the humidifier is out of water
