Hi all, first post - long time lurker!
Yesterday I finally received my MaraX (been waiting for a month because the grinder was out of stock ), but so far I'm really enjoying it. What a difference this is to our old Sage Barista Express!
Anywho, I love to tinker. While waiting for the machine to arrive, I read everything I could find, and stumbled upon a project where a reed sensor would be attached to the pump, to make a shot timer for the machine.
Meanwhile, I've been wondering - wouldn't it be easier to just connect to the small button that is pushed in by the brew lever?
If this is not possible, I expect to be fitting a zigbee-connected door/window sensor instead of an "oldschool" reed sensor to connect directly to my homeassistatn setup. I'm don't like wires sticking out of my stuff
