Would this be possible?
I have a air compressor which makes an awful lot of noise, I have put it far far away in a little corner with a zwave wallplug, now I can switch the air compressor on and off remotely.
The problem is that you can not power off the compressor when the motor is still running , it can only be shut off with a special valve, which gets the air out when you press the off button, so with the next start , the electric motor does nut burn out.
Or wait untill the compressor has its max pressure , than it shuts off completely and than I can get the power off ( switch off the wallplug).
Untill now I do it by noise , when I don't hear the compressor anymore I switch the wallpug to off.
I would like to automate it a little bit; only switch off the wallplug when:
-I press the off button on the wallplug ( via a mobile device) AND the power consumption = 0 watts
-When the power consumption is above x watts , than wait with switching off untill power consumption is 0
-send a notification when the wallplug is off
I probably have to do this with PLEG , but maybe there is an easier/ better way?
