Frontend indication how long washing machine is on

I like to implement a frontend indicator showing the elapsed time (hours:minutes) the washing machine has been on and drawing more than 1W of power. This should give me a rough estimate when it will finish. I’m using a TuYa Zigbee plug which has a property for the current power consumption (sensor.wasmachine_plug_power).

I use Measureit integration. makes setting up timers and counters a breeze. I do a similar thing with a number of devices/appliances

Thanks a bunch, it looks like that’s exactly what I’m looking for! I can probably even use it for some of my existing automations where I used counters which are triggered every minute from an automation which always felt a bit hacky…
