Hello all fellow Homeys!
I have been thinking how to do smart Bed presence for me and the wifey. First I looked at pressure mat + door sensor with Z-Wave (this one can be one option) but then I got the idea. We always put our phones in to charging each night. If you then put the charger behind a Z-Wave outlet that measures power can you do a flow where it checks for power draw and determine if we are in the bed or not. Can you specify power draw even the phone is fully charged to 100% but still plugged in. So the phone still would draw so little power that you can determine if its plugged in or not.
If this not possible is there any other way doing this Bed presence better than the pressure mat?
Hope someone can help me out
