Require: IP-Symcon >= 6.0

The module is used to detect unusual consumption. It reacts to a counter variable and switches an alarm under certain conditions. There are two state variables.
A high consumption state, which switches when an adjustable limit value is exceeded. A low consumption state, which ticks up in 7 steps if a set limit value (e.g. dripping faucet) is exceeded over a longer period of time. The interval for both controls can be set via the configuration. An alarm, which switches when the high consumption state is switched to alarm, or the low consumption alarm exceeds a set value.
