Description

We placed a current sensor on the wash machine power cable. When no more current is flowing through the sensor, after an adjustable timeout, the Wash Alert will send you a notification via telegram or e-mail to remind you to remove your clothes from the washing machine in order to dry them out. This application can also have an ecological information function. To increase people's awareness on the use of water and energy, we added the water and energy power consumption of the washing cycle to the notifications. With a coil relay you can even command a solenoid valve for a waterstop function. When arrive the message ending wash you have a possibility of send a messag to wasalert for closing the water on inlet of washmachine. Although we developed it for a washing machine, this project is perfectly suited to other household appliances such as ovens, dishwasher etc.
