MAKER senses water level, turns on/off pump or triggers IFTTT alert.

by WEMO Maker Inventor on ‎08-25-2014 02:12 PM

Using a Maker with a water sensor could have many uses.

 

Please comment and add to this list.

 

1. Animal water tank level while on vacation.

2. Sump pump controls.

3. Vacation home, cabin, hunting palace monitoring (ours is in a flood zone).

Notification plants need water

Hi,

 

Have recently put together a water level sensor and wemo maker to control the water pump. The logic goes like this-

 

the sensor (NO glass reed switch) triggers Maker if water level in tank is low -- this switches an external 10A relay which starts the pump; The pump remains ON for 'x ' minutes after the sensor is triggered and then turns off.

 

This is working well for the past 1 week, till i decided to add a rule  'no detection'  between 00 hrs to 6:00 hrs (basically night time when there is little or no water being used). After this change, i receive a notification in the morning (around 8am) that sensor triggered, but the relay (pump) does not come ON.

 

If anyone can point out if i am missing something.....
