OK, I caught one in the act, sort-of… I finally got around to trying to trap my Washer HS110 transitioning between Off and Standby to see if I could figure out at what power threshold(s) that occurs. First, I turned on all three alerts (On, Off and Standby) for the Washer smartplug.
Then I let it go for a few days to see if there was a pattern. It looks like there is some good hunting in the morning !
Next I set up the CollectKasa.jar utility to sample my Washer HS110 smartplug every 5 seconds. More on that utility and links here.
Finally I looked closely at the Power data coming out of my Washer HS110 close to the 5:30AM and 9:11AM timeline alerts above.
I’m able to see the event that likely caused the 5:30 AM transition.
But I came up empty on the 9:11AM event. Then again, I was looking at a 5 sec. sample so I might have missed that one crucial data point.
Then again, it might not be as simple as that. If I look at a bigger stretch of the morning, it sure looks like there should have been some other transitions detected, that weren’t. Hmmm.
