Working with Fortrezz +2 to monitor a status?

(James W Covington) #1

I have Smartthings Hub and want to get the status of my generator.

The generator has an actuator panel with lights to indicate various statuses. What I want to monitor is

  1. Generator is Running – Which there is a light
  2. Building is on Generator Power - Which there is a light
  3. Commercial Power is available. – which there is a light

The lights run on 12 - 24 volts DC.
So I would have a fortrezz mimo2+ monitoring the first two lights and a mimo lite to monitor the 3rd.

When 1 or 2 or both above changes (light is on) I want to get an email or text to notify me . On 3, when it goes off, I want a notification of this.

The app would need to monitor the ports and if Comm power is back on, the Generator Switch has swapped back to Commercial Power, or the Gen set is off, notifications would be sent.

Is there something standard or would an app need to be written?
