I recently bought a portable ice maker, and want to be able to set it to a schedule/make it smart. Unfortunately, it does not power on when plugged in, and the power on is operated by a momentary push button.
I'm trying to find a relay that can send a power on/off pulse, with a voltage sensor that can tell if the machine is currently on. It would have to accept a variety of voltage supply, because I don't know exactly what the internals operate on yet.
For technology: I don't have zigbee/zwave hub, but am happy to buy one. Currently doing automations through Google Home, and plan to switch to home assistant at some point, so it would need to be compatible with both.
I've been looking at some of the Shelly relays (1, uni), but I've seen mixed reviews if they can operate a momentary switch without flashing tasmota, and if they would be able to sense if the machine is on.
