I’ve been trying to get Alexa to notify me when the washing machine is done. I added a power meter switch to the machine and when the power drops below 1 kw it sends a text through ST.
I signed up for Notify me and have that working, so I added a virtual switch called “home” in ST and when the power drops ST turns that switch on. When IFTT sees that switch turned off, I would like it to send a notification.
(As a side note I added a actual light as a trigger and when it turns on it does work)
The problem is that IFTT doesn’t offer the virtual switch as a trigger.
Something I’m missing?
