I was doing some research and stumbled across this (very nice) setup. I was going to do something similar using a PLC that I have kicking around, but after seeing your set up I am favoring your relay logic vs. my PLC.
I understand the whole system is protected by whatever outlet you house is rated for, for example you most likely on a 20A or 30A house circuit breaker. But what are you’re thought on protecting the main 120V coming to the outlets with a fuse or protecting each branch with their own fuse? I might be over thinking the set up or I just might be over paranoid, but just wanted to get some thoughts and make sure I don’t’ burn down the house.
