Hello Smart people So today I learned my washing machine’s cycle fluctuates widely in power usage (5-400W) as it turns on and off and does it’s thing… Same for it’s vibrations… on and off in different periods totalling up to 1.5 hrs. Anyone have any Smart ideas to alert me reliably when it’s actually done it’s full cycle?
Flip a virtual switch On when it first goes over 100W, then test for switch being on and power being <5W
I think I have mine set to alert me when it hits 4w, and that’s always worked for me!
Look here for some SmartApps, they work well.
