I am relatively new to homey and still trying to figure things out.
Although I have configured most things by myself already, I have a few problems that I need help with.
So first let me explain what I need to solve and then maybe someone can give me some pointers in the right direction.
The problem I have is that when ever I run my dishwasher and at the save time try to use my microwave at the same time the fuse goes for some reason.
So when ever I want to warm up some food I need first to check and make sure the dishwasher is not running. If I forget… Fuse!
Then after warming up the food I need to again remember to turn the dishwasher back on again.
I wanted to automate this process somehow, so I bought 2 IKEA TRADFRI outlets and 2 IKEA TRADFRI On/Off switches.
One switch and outlet is for the microwave and the other for the dishwasher.
Now I have set up so that if I press the switch for the microwave it turns off my dishwasher and a 10 min timer starts for the microwave.
I have also programed a timer for the dishwasher 130 minutes.
Also I have programed the dishwasher not to turn on if the microwave is on.
However when ever the microwave turns off, either by the timer going down to 0 or I manually press the off switch I have set the dishwasher timer to start running, which it doesn’t really need to unless the dishwasher was already on before the microwave was started.
So my question is, is it possible to run the dishwasher on a timer, and if I need the
microwave, the dishwasher timer can be paused and then continue once I am done with the microwave without the dishwasher timer resetting or starting when ever the microwave is turned off?
