Going to purchase 2x FGD-212 and 1x FGS-223, thought I'd check here before buying new.


Might also need bypass modules.


Also on the lookout for a smart plug with power metering. Haven't spent too much time looking into it, but have seen some cheap WIFI ones, ZWave ones tend to be fair amount more.


Figure I'd use it to check power usage of various devices when I need to instead of a wall power meter. Assume it's accurate enough for that. Might be be useful for notifying when the washing machine is finished with a load.

Was my top contender. But put off by the price, considering my limited usage applications. Seems like a cheaper WIFI one might be better suited for me.
