Ben. Perhaps you can give me some direction on solving some of my current Sense problems. I’ve had Sense for about 8 months, and so far it’s only identified 6 devices accurately. At the same time it’s failed to ‘discover’ my
They just fall under the ‘Unknown’ category so I have no way of linking them to an identified device.
In addition, I get multiple device readings for my
Panasonic bread maker
I’ve written to Sense Support several times about the lack of ability to identify key devices in my house. Each time I’ve been told they’re working on it and will get back to me. I’ve read the FAQ’s and blog, but I’m still at a loss of what to do next. A product this erratic ceases to be useful.
I love the idea of a device that monitors and identifies devices based on their unique characteristics, and one that gathers data from a wide base to make the job easier. I do find Sense to be very helpful in identifying and tracking some devices in my house, but the lack of accurately identifying this many key devices makes it overall a failure as an energy monitor. Perhaps this product was released prematurely. Unfortunately, if asked, I would not recommend this product to anyone else at this time.
