This is partially a duplicate of a post in the Ezlo sub-forum. Putting this here as this is not Ezlo specific.
We are trying to use smart plugs to monitor the energy uses of various appliances. We are running into a problem with some microwave ovens. They overload the switches, and the switches turn off when the oven is run. We are seeing this problem with the Aeotec Smart Switch 7 (ZWA023-A), and the Zooz Z-Wave Plus Power Switch (ZEN15).
The Aeotec Smart Switch 6 (ZW096) does not overload, but only when it’s overload protection is turned off (which on some switches appears to be the default), which is not recommended.
The Zooz ZEN15 is intended for high power applications, including microwave ovens, but the higher power ovens still overload it.
Is anyone else having similar issues with smart plugs and microwave ovens? Does anyone know of a z-wave smart switch that works well with high power microwave ovens?
