Notify on print becoming loose from plate

What is the problem?

Is there a way (maybe plugin?) that can detect and alert when the print has become loose from the plate and is just printing in mid air?
This would be using the pi camera that is connected to the pi that is running octoPrint
I have a feeling this might not be possible due to the complexity of the problem

What did you already try to solve it?

Researching online

Have you tried running in safe mode and if so did it solve the issue?


Complete Logs

octoprint.log, serial.log or output on terminal tab at a minimum, browser error console if UI issue ... no logs, no support! Not log excerpts, complete logs.)


Additional information about your setup

OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible

Version 0.18.0, running on Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.4
Octopi 1.4.2

There is already 'The Spaghetti Detective':

And more recently 'Mattacloud Beta':

Great, thanks. I will look into them.
I wonder if it can impact the performance of the server while running either of these, to the point it can affect the printing itself, it is just a 2gb pi4 after all.

Both of them run in the cloud, since as you say it would impact performance quite a bit. AFAIK no one has reported performance issues so far.

Any idea of either of them can report back to octoprint and I can grab the error somehow and pass it on to Home Assistant?
