I setup my Dryer to notify me when it’s done. This was pretty simple for me since I’ve always been into repairing electronics. I added this to my dryer since my Buzzer was 110V
I just used the NC legs (I didn’t want to see sensor open all the time on ST app) to a Ring Door/Window Sensor (I soldered wires to the magnetic reed switch Basically solder 1 wire to each end) So when the dryer is done it Buzzes and triggers Relay which trips the sensor then I have Alexa announce “Dryer is Done”. Very Very Simple to do and very reliable. Please note I did take the Dryer control panel apart and mount the relay inside it. Ran wire out the back through a rubber grommet and mounted Ring Door Sensor on back so I would have easy access to change battery and you can’t see it. (Told you I was into electronics oh and a certified ISO solder. lol)
Now the Washer I’m having some problems with. I ordered this:
Its a 15AMP Z-wave smart switch. I have it setup in ST without any issues. What I want to do is have it notify me also through Alexa (PLEASE don’t tell me to use WebCore I will use WebCore the day I can setup a Webcore server in my house on my secure server) So that being said… Is there anyway to make this work. I know I could get ST to notify me just not sure how to get Alexa to announce it.
