I'm thankful to have a whole home generator. And in the couple years that I've owned it I really haven't had to use it for extended periods of time. Well, last night the power went out for a couple hours while I was at work. So, as the whole neighborhood was without power and in the dark, I was the a**hole with all of my outside yard lights and accent lights lighting up my house.
What I would like to do is figure out a way to shed unnecessary load, especially turning outside lights off. If I could figure out a way for the generator to signal my hub (currently running HE C7 Version 18.104.22.168), I could probably figure out an easy if/then rule to turn the lights off.
