This is how I solved it!

The script that show status on homepage.

echo "<b>Machine status</b>";
echo "</br>";
$arr = array(5, 7, 9);
foreach ($arr as &$value) {
$get_data = "".$value;
$result = file_get_contents($get_data);
$decode = json_decode($result,true);
	if ($decode["result"][0]["Value"] == "1"){
	$icon = "green-icon.png";
	else {
	$icon = "red-icon.png";
switch ($decode['result'][0]['Name']) {
    case "washingmachine_status":
        $unit = "Washing machine";
    case "dryer_status":
        $unit = "Dryer";
    case "dishwasher_status":
        $unit = "Dishwasher";
	echo "</br>     " . $unit . "</br><img src=\"/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/" . $icon . "\"><em>" . $decode['result'][0]['LastUpdate'] . "</em><br>";

The script that check my machines.

--This script monitors the current consumption indicated by a Z-Wave plug, placed between the washingmachine and the mains outlet
--It will count the amount of time that the power usage is below the triggervalue to be configured below. This indicates us that the washer has finished.
--When the script thinks the washingmachine is done, it will send you a pushnotification (line #38)</code>
--Change the values below to reflect to your own setup
local switch_washingmachine = 'virt_wasmachine' --Name of virtual switch that will show the state of the washingmachine (on/off)
local washer_status_uservar = 'washingmachine_status'
local energy_consumption = 'Wasmachine' --Name of Z-Wave plug that contains actual consumption of washingmachine (in Watts)
local washer_counter_uservar = 'washingmachine_counter' --Name of the uservariable that will contain the counter that is needed
local idle_minutes = 5 --The amount of minutes the consumption has to stay below the 'consumption_lower' value
local consumption_upper = 20 --If usage is higher than this value (Watts), the washingmachine has started
local consumption_lower = 3 --If usage is lower than this value (Watts), the washingmachine is idle for a moment/done washing
sWatt, sTotalkWh = otherdevices_svalues[energy_consumption]:match("([^;]+);([^;]+)")
washer_usage = tonumber(sWatt)
commandArray = {}

if (washer_usage &gt; consumption_upper) and uservariables[washer_status_uservar] == 0 then

print('Current power usage (' ..washer_usage.. 'W) is above upper boundary (' ..consumption_upper.. 'W), so washing has started!')

print('Current power usage (' ..washer_usage.. 'W) is below lower boundary (' ..consumption_lower.. 'W), washer is idle or almost ready')
print('Subtracting counter with 1, new value: ' ..uservariables[washer_counter_uservar].. ' minutes')
--Washingmachine is done
if ((uservariables[washer_status_uservar] == 1) and uservariables[washer_counter_uservar] == 0) then
print('Washingmachine is DONE')
print('Current power usage washingmachine ' ..washer_usage.. 'W')
print('Washingmachine is done, please go empty it!')

I have a solution, this is how i manage solve this “irritating problem”.

I assume that you have a Z-wave base, mine is a raspberryPi with a razberry chip and with software domoticz.

You shoppinglist:
1pcs Inline Smart Energy Switch from Aeon Labs
1pcs Motion sensor from Fibaro
In sweden you can get all you need at www.m.nu

And I use a LUA script named script_time_PIR-tv.lua. So after 20 minutes of inactivity in livingroom, the tv shutsdown… Simply as that!

function timedifference(s)
year = string.sub(s, 1, 4)
month = string.sub(s, 6, 7)
day = string.sub(s, 9, 10)
hour = string.sub(s, 12, 13)
minutes = string.sub(s, 15, 16)
seconds = string.sub(s, 18, 19)
t1 = os.time()
t2 = os.time{year=year, month=month, day=day, hour=hour, min=minutes, sec=seconds}
difference = os.difftime (t1, t2)
return difference
commandArray = {}
-- Set length of time light should be on for in seconds
timeon = 1200
-- Calculate time since time PIR was last activated
difference = timedifference(otherdevices_lastupdate['Vardagsrum motion'])
-- If the time since last activation was within 1 minute of time for light to stay on
if (difference &gt; timeon and difference &lt; (timeon + 61)) then
tempdiff = tostring(difference)
tempmessage = "Switch1 Light Off - after at least " .. (timeon+1) .. "secs up - actually - " .. tempdiff .. "seconds"
-- Switch off Switch1
commandArray['Tv'] = 'Off'
return commandArray
