… or better put, when I’m not running
On a serious note, though. At the beginning of the pandemic I bought a treadmill for cheap and I planned to watch YouTube videos only when using it. Turns out I am sometimes lazier than I anticipated and keep subconsciously convincing myself with lame excuses to watch a given video that I stumble upon right at that moment at my desk or on a given mobile device.
Ideally YouTube would be blocked in my router, a Ubiquity EdgeRouter, but I doubt it’s possible.
Or maybe via DNS blocking (PiHole?), but I’m open to all solutions.
It would be best to achieve this with “off-the-shelf” components. I thought that maybe a “smart” outlet exists that allows to trigger a HomeKit action if power is drawn? The action could maybe flip a virtual switch in Homebridge? I’m new to Homebridge so part of my question to those with experience is, whether that is at all possible?
If avoidable I wouldn’t want to fiddle with Arduino and sensors, due to a lack of time to maintain it. And I don’t want to solder something to the treadmill itself, because I want to resell it at some point.
But I’m open to any creative solution
Thanks a lot!
