If device changes to active 3 times in 5 minutes


1) Give a description of the problem
I am trying to use a multi sensor to detected acceleration on my washing machine.

2) What is the expected behaviour?
The sensor will changes to active and non active a number if times. The only way to change the state correctly is have it be detected more than 3 times within …



This works but I need to set a time limit on recording the acceleration


I once hacked a washing machine directly, taking a signal directly from the lock mechanism… I used a dumb latching relay to turn the 12v lock feed to dry-contact, then soldered across the reed switch on a cheap Xiaomi contact sensor.

When the washing machine lock released, the contact sensor showed as open.

Acceleration sensors miss a lot of events / hard to programme for.

My machine for example changes the number of final spins based on the load / amount of soap used / water hardness.
