could you please make sure that in your automation, the “Smart appliance socket” entity is selected correctly? From what I can see, it should point to
Also, it could be that the State machine is not selected, because the
unplugged state is always shown as the default one, and that can’t be a coincidence
If that doesn’t solve the issue please paste the yaml file of your automation.
# Your automation should look something like this:
alias: My washing machine automation
# Things that I saw on the screenshot you posted
appliance_socket: switch.washing_machine_socket # <- Made a typo here, it has to be a switch
# Things that I didn't see.
# I'm assuming that the naming matches the documentation
Regarding the door sensor, I think that this goes outside the scope of the blueprint. Mine wants to be a universal solution and the feature you are referring to is very targeted.
You can definitely pair another automation to mine and do what you want with it. It’d certainly be easier since you now know the state of your appliance.
