Good afternoon everyone! I have a question, and I hope perhaps someone here has done something similiar.
Quick explanation. I have a wellpoint pump which fills a tank with water, which I then use for irrigation. I have a Sonoff BasicR2 connected to the pump, with schedules when to run to start filling the tank.
I also have a float switch in the tank, which interrupts the circuit to the pump, AFTER the Sonoff. So even though the Sonoff will turn ON due to schedule, the pump will not turn on if the tank is full.
This is the intention, and works perfectly. But I have 2 questions
If the Sonoff is on, but pump is off because of the float switch, from Ewelink it still looks lik the pump is on. Any way to install another switch, that can show that although the pump is on, it is not running?
Is there any type of device that is Ewelink/Sonoff compatible that can detect flow? I would like to be able to know whether the pump is actually pumping water, or if there is no water, possibly due to outlet line damage, etc etc.
