Increasing standby threshold limit higher than 99 watts

by Woogs on ‎02-21-2018 08:05 PM

I'm using the Wemo insight to power a device that idles at around 200 watts. When it's performing it's full function it draws about 700 watts of power. I want to set up an IFTT email to trigger if the device fails and falls back to idle but the Insight won't let me because the highest the threshold will go is 99 watts. My device will never go below 99 watts even at idle. This would be really helpful functionality to add. Or, if there are any known work arounds that'd be great. Thanks.

Known workaround: don't use IFTTT (which can be slow and occasionally unreliable) or the insight "standby".  A product called "AutomationManager" will run on/as a local server inside your network (on a low end android device).  You can setup automation to notify or take action based on the power level measured by the insight up to any level.
