How to automate home smart plugs
I'm thinking of buying this product. What's the easiest way to create automation of smart plugs using near real time directional data about my energy usage. I have solar panels so sometimes I have a positive flow from the grid and sometimes a negative flow out to the grid. I want to be able to automate plugs based on either state - turning things on or off if values are exceeded.
Is this something I can do fairly easily using tools like IFTTT, Alexa, SmartThings. Or will I need to build something on a Raspberry PI and get more hands on ?
