Turn on Hue bulb red shade, when washing done.
« on: February 13, 2018, 04:51:24 pm »
Hi, I have a Vera plus (just got it, will be setting it up), replacing my Edge.  I have a Aeotec Smart Switch 6 which I have connected to our washing machine in the garage. 
Is it possible to configure a action to turn on one of my Hue bulbs in a red shade once the smart switch detects the washing machine has turned off? 
I know there is a residual power use when the machine i on standby, and the power use fluctuates during the washing cycle.

thanks

Do a Google search and you'll find some threads on washing machine state detection.  Here's one example: http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,22768.msg255830.html#msg255830

And another using PLEG: http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,32959.msg242044.html#msg242044

the latter looks easier if you are familiar with PLEG.
