Disclaimer: I’m a n00b
I’m sick and tired of waking up to a cold shower. This past winter I’ve had at least 4 instances but my problem is not always a fault with the hot water system. It can be power outages that trip the safety switch, blow the fuse or trip the reset switch on the system. I’m looking for a sensor solution to warn me that there’s something wrong before I find out in the shower.
I’m looking for advice on how to set something up to sense the temperature of the tank, connect to the home wifi and report to something that I can check/poll/IFTTT etc. I’m ok with programming and using cloud services (AWS, Azure or whatever) but I don’t know where to start with the sensor / arduino setup or if there’s something already built for a similar purpose.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
