I have an NCD device that monitors a sump pump activation/de-activation. It used to work in conjunction with IFTTT but that service was deprecated during the summer. My project includes:
1/Send a text when the pump is activated, and de-activated, using group.me
2/send an email via gmail account.
3/log each event (power on, off) to google sheets
4/send an alert if pump has been running longer than X minutes
5/send an alert is pump has not run in X minutes (hours)
