HomeKit Overview

This is a dynamic platform plugin for Homebridge to control the state of your washingmachine(s) used with Sonoff POW (R2) with Telegram notification Support

This Plugin creates a Outlet Accessory with FakeGato functionality to check the power, which will be triggered when the current power is greater or equal than "startValue" defined in config.json

You can also set up the notifier to get a Telegram notification with customized messages and markdown capability when the current running program starts and/or finishes!

  • sudo npm i -g homebridge-washingmachine-pow@latest

Power Report

The plugin works with the latest version of Tasmota (at the time of writing v9.3.1). If you want to have a more precise output of the power consumption, you can write the following command via the Tasmote page of the device under "Console" and confirm it with "Enter".

PowerDelta 1

1 stands for the percentage change in power consumption. This means that a change of 1% will send a message via MQTT, which the plugin will then process and show to you via EVE.
