Hello Community, I am a new to Arduino user, new to text based programming (I do PLC Ladder professionally). I have a project where I would like to use Arduino to monitor a 120V Outlet and tell me when the device (Pump) it is plugged into is running. we would have a current threshold over XX set-able value. When it reaches that setpoint a relay contact needs to close to turn on a lamp. its to watch and make sure the pump is not running for an extended amount of time.
If someone is willing to help me identify the parts I will need, and software used I would appreciate it. any starter code or pointers is also appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
