Water leakage notification blueprint

I have a few water leakage sensor around my home and I want to create a blueprint to trigger when the sensor turns “wet” and not have to create an automation for each one. The device_class is moisture and it is a binary_sensor. How can I create that ?

here

yes you see wet/dry

but it on/off

#=======================================================================
#
#=======================================================================
- id: Water Alarm
  alias: 'Water Alarm'
  trigger:
  - entity_id: binary_sensor.water_leak
    platform: state
    to: 'on'
  action:
  - data:
      entity_id: script.flash_garage_lights
    service: script.turn_on

This should go in #configuration:blueprints

I am able to create an automation but I have to do it one by one so am looking for a blueprint that will use this device class and hence applies on all water leak sensors

but why create so many

  trigger:
  - entity_id: 
    - binary_sensor.leak1
    - binary_sensor.leak2
    - binary_sensor.leak3
    - binary_sensor.leak4
    - binary_sensor.leak5
    - binary_sensor.leak6
    - binary_sensor.leak7
    platform: state
    to: 'on'
action:
  - data_template:
      title: "Home Assistant"
      message: "{{ trigger.to_state.attributes.friendly_name }} is leaking"
    service: notify.notify 

spacing could be off wrote this off top of head.

If I do it this way, every time I add a new sensor; I have to go modify the automation. With a blueprint, it is done automatically :slight_smile:
I am lazy

good point bro not Lazy just trying to be smart :slight_smile:

here read this

just change the motion to moisture job done

The blueprint is missing an action section, this is where am getting it wrong. I used another BP as base but the editor doesn’t like " default: !input ‘actions’ "

blueprint:
  name: Detect water and notify
  description: detect  'moisture' device-class and if so execute an action.
  domain: automation
  input:
    actions:
      name: Actions
      description: Notifications or similar to be run. {{sensors}} is replaced with the names of sensors.
      selector:
        action: {}
variables:
  sensors: >-
    {% set result = namespace(sensors=[]) %}
    {% for state in states.sensor | selectattr('attributes.device_class', '==', 'moisture') %}
        {% set result.sensors = result.sensors + [state.name ~ ' (' ~ state.state ~ ' %)'] %}
    {% endfor %}
    {% for state in states.binary_sensor | selectattr('attributes.device_class', '==', 'moisture') | selectattr('state', '==', 'on') %}
       {% set result.sensors = result.sensors + [state.name] %}
    {% endfor %}
    {{result.sensors|join(', ')}}
trigger:
  - type: moist
    platform: device
action:
- choose: []
  default: !input 'actions'
mode: single

Can you make a link to this blueprint? I was looking for this functionality!

I don’t want to maintain a blueprint, but I created one for my own use for my water sensors. If someone wants to publish properly, feel free to take this.

blueprint:
  name: Moisture Sensor
  description: Perform action when moisture sensor turns wet
  domain: automation
  input:
    actions:
      name: Actions
      description: Notifications or similar to be run.
        {{ trigger.event.data.new_state.attributes.friendly_name }} will be the name of the
        sensor
      selector:
        action: {}
trigger:
  - event_data: {}
    event_type: state_changed
    platform: event
condition:
  - condition: template
    value_template: '{{ trigger.event.data.new_state.attributes.device_class == "moisture" }}'
  - condition: template
    value_template: '{{ trigger.event.data.new_state.state == "on" }}'
action:
- choose: []
  default: !input 'actions'
mode: single

I create an action on Call service calling the notify.mobile_app_my_iphone with data like:

message: 'Leak detected by {{ trigger.event.data.new_state.attributes.friendly_name }}'
data:
  push:
    sound:
      name: default
      critical: 1
      volume: 1

I didn’t have the time to complete it and publish but I will try to do that very soon and publish it.
@ joel_d1
I can use yours and merge with mine if needed, is that ok ?

Here is my simple blueprint that will send a notification to a defined device if moisture is detected by any configured sensor: https://gist.github.com/bbbenji/d4d1fe1856ec54370a422508c8963f2a

It also relays the sensor’s friendly_name in the message.

Just select where the notification should go and you’re all set.

I know this is a bit off topic but I like this idea and wanted to share my water notification script, I have my water sensor sitting in my sump, so if my pump fails I want it to get me out of bed! The mobile app max volume alert is great for this.

water_alarm:
  sequence:
    - alias: Water Alarm
      repeat:
        while:
          - condition: state
            entity_id: binary_sensor.basement_water_sensor
            state: 'on'
          # Don't do it too many times
          - condition: template
            value_template: "{{ repeat.index <= 60 }}"
        sequence:
          - service: notify.mobile_app_chriss_iphone
            data:
              title: "Water Alarm Triggered!"
              message: "Check the sump pump in the basement!"
              data:
                push:
                  sound:
                    name: default
                    critical: 1
                    volume: 1.0
          - delay: '00:01:00'
          - service: notify.chris_sms
            data:
                title: "Water Alarm Triggered"
                message: "Check the sump pump in the basement"
          - delay: '00:01:00'
