I’m looking for a way to check, if my stove is on. Or better is still on.
My wife is a little paranoid about the stove being left on after cooking, because her father burned down a whole kitchen years ago. He was just sitting in his tv chair and had forgotten about it. 4th floor, no elevator, fire rescue needed a bit time to go up… You get the idea…
So, does anyone have a good idea, how to check the stove?
Best way would be to really check, if there is still power consumed, but I found only very expensive switches for that - nope, nothing smart. So my ideas range from checking the power consumption of the control panel (but I would need to open up the stove, not sooo good), over a heat sensor (same, need to open up the stove) to a small webcam, that is monitoring the control panel visually.
You see, nothing cool for my HA.
Does somebody have a good idea(s) for that? I’m willing to try everything, even running five times around the stove nacked or whatever it takes, if that brings up anything. Let your ideas flow, think out-of-the-box. There must be something, that I can use to monitor the stove… See, it is my wifes sleep (=> wife happy - me happy), besides, if I find a way for this, I’m looking forward to a bright home automation future. After this stunt, I’m sure I can practically do everything I want at home, at least for a few days
Thanks a lot for every input and idea! Oh, I forgot, I’m living in Germany, here the stove is connected on 400V.
