Hi all, is there a way to log/graph a device’s wattage throughout its run period? I have a device that turns on randomly (actually via a float switch, but “random” in this context) and runs for a short period (5-30 minutes). I would like a way to record/graph the wattage over this period. Today the only way I can do this is sti in front ofthe app and wait for the device (or set up a ‘device on’ alert and then watch).
In case anyone is wondering: yes, still my septic pump. It starts at around 900 watts, and then if/when the distribution laterals fill up and generate resistance to the pump, the wattage decreases due to hydraulic ‘head pressure’. I recently did some service on the system which reduce the pump-out time a whole lot- and now I want to see if the pump runs ‘all out’ during its 5-6 minute run period or if it still runs into head pressure after the first minute or two (unfortunately my baseline is all anecdotal).
If Sense can’t do this, is anyone aware of a not-too-expensive data logging device that I can install inline on the pump’s feed line?
