Wall plug - Standby switch off

Question

Hi,

 

I couldn't find an solution on this forum but maybe you have the answer for me.

I've got the fibaro wall plug and i want to made a scene to switch off the wall plug when my TV goes into standby mode.

Now i found the power measurement < 30W and than the action turn off and even a timer before this action takes place for example 2 minutes.

But you can guess, this is always true because wall plug isn't on so the wall plug never get on because of the previous statement.

 

How can i fix this or am i doing something wrong ?

 

Kind regards,

 

Jappie

It seems like you are trying to remove power from the TV when it goes into standby mode, is that correct? Not sure why you would want to do that?

 

Or are you using the wall plug to power some other device?

If powering off for a LED tv I should NOT do it it seems to damage your tv. You can switch off other home cinema devices.

As you mentioned also you can create a trigger to switch tv on.

In your case it should work if power TV < x it will be switched off. It doest prevent switch tv on after switch on >>> stand bye mode >>> time delay >>> power < x Result wall plug switch off

    When i put manually the TV in standby mode after that i want to automatically switch off the wall plug.

    This won't harm the TV and it should be possible because the energy consumption is 3W.

     

    Now i put off the wall plug at an exact time and thats not the case ;)

    This last thing i don't get it to work;  stand bye mode (manual action bij remote control)  >>> time delay >>> power < x Result wall plug switch off

    It only works 1 time for me :(

     

    When wall plug is on

    and power measurement is < 5W

    Then turn off wall plug.

    Fair enough, you are trying to save electricity. Just be aware that the wall plug itself uses up to 1.6W, so the power savings are not that great, about 5 euro per year.

    No, thats not my intention, TV when in standby modus can cause fire. While you are sleeping you don't hear/smell anything until it can be too late.

     

    So i want to be sure to get the power from my TV after when i put it manually into stand-by modus

    I guess that is a possibility, albeit very small. Fires can start for all sorts of reasons, not just faulty appliances - hopefully you have smoke alarms that will wake you if needed. Mains powered and interconnected ones are recommended.

    @JappieJ I think the problem is when you shut down the wallplug when power measurement is below a certain value and you manually power up your wallplug, it will shuts off again. Maybe you should add a time range to the condition?

     

    btw @Tim__ recommendation on smoke alarms is important, there are also wallplugs burned down.

    Hi,

    I use if power < 10 for 5 min TV>>>off This 5 min is only for in case someone push wrong button if using remote control.

    REMARK: my TV doest go off but the home cinema goes off

    related to "TV " on/off the light scene will be adapted.

    Jappie can you post scene and debug?

    @SmartHomeEddy has a point.

    If TV wall plug is switched on how long it takes to switch TV on?

    In my example if TV wall plug is switched on my home cinema is starting and power will be above the settting of 10 Watt

    I've got smokealarms interconnected to eachother and hopefully i don't need them.

     

    What you say Edyy is exactly what is happening, add a time range for 2 minuts before the wall plug is off and this is working 1 time only after taht i can't get the wall plug manually or by sensors on.

    My TV always starts up in standby mode and uses +/- 2,9W power consumption

     

    So you got me thinking and ive got an solution now that's working for me.

     

    First block --> Wall Plug is Turned ON for 2 minuts

    AND

    Second block -->Wall Plug Power measurement < 5W for 2 minuts

    THEN

    Wall Plug is Turn Off

     

    Thanks for brainstorming and i wish you all the best!
