I have posted this on the GHL Facebook page, but thgouht I would post here as well.

My skimmer stopped running yesterday (due to be fouled). Normally it had 0.5A current draw on the power bar. Is there a way of monitoring and alerting if current draw is outside of a nominated window (either high or low)?

Low - obvious use case is when a pump stops running.

High - something variable might be running harder than it should (possible to pick up on a 1-10v output if you are using Profilux to control, but may be useful where Profilux isn't be used to control). An example might be a DC return pump pumping harder than it should.

Thanks in advance
