I have a Amerec steam shower that has “instructions” for connecting it to smart devices. I have wires that just require a momentary dry contact to turn it on or off, that’s the easy part. I was thinking something along the lines of Linear FS20z-1 contact fixture module, but reporting current status is throwing me a little bit.
The instructions are say:
1OVDC = STEAM BATH ON
0VDC = STEAM BATH OFF
I’m trying to think of a way to monitor these devices for 10vdc to tell me if the steam is on, or off. I don’t know of any zigbee or zwave modules that can report power. I would think I could do this with relays and inexpensive electrical equipment but I don’t know enough about them, maybe someone can enlighten me on the subject??
Otherwise I will resort to looking for a cheap 10vdc device that I can use in conjunction with a zwave/zigbee sensor. I.E. a 10vdc light, and a light sensor. Or a 10vdc motor that makes a box vibrate and a multipurpose sensor.
TLDR; What is the easiest/cheapest way to report status of 10vdc power to ST.
