It’s a 2,500 sqft 1962 ranch, with 100% new electrical. 100% LED lighting, except one incandescent (which Sense correctly identifies most of the time; it has not detected any other lights). Most of the lighting is proprietary LED “light engine” type devices, not LED replacement bulbs in legacy fixtures. Radiant heating via gas boiler, so no HVAC electrical except ~10watt recirc pump and negligible-load control systems. Two EVs always on 11pm to 6am. Miele frig. Miele dishwasher used once per day. Miele microwave/electric combo oven used a couple times every other day or so. Blender, cuisinart, kithenaid used maybe once a week. Toaster and electric kettle used a few times a day. Coffee grinder used for 10 seconds every morning. Can’t-remember-brand-nothing-fancy clothes washer and gas dryer used 2-3 times per week. One small Samsung TV. Two always-on iMacs. Cable box, phone chargers, and that sort of stuff.
Now you know (almost*) my entire electrical life – better than Sense I dare say!
*almost: there are a bunch of motors (tools) in garage, but used only for minutes at a time every other week or so, and I don’t think this is affecting Sense’s ability to detect my frig light…
I’d be happy to post picture of device (but not home now), though I rather doubt there is such a thing as a improper install that affects device detection. The install pretty much works or it doesn’t – CTs are correctly placed or not, wireless connected or not. Not much else there.
My Sense did have some initial internal problems. When installed it worked for a day, then died. Came back a few days later, but couldn’t make wireless connection. Jiggled connectors once, came back, then died, etc. Jiggling only worked once however. I followed tech support troubleshooting and they were going to RMA it for replacement, when it suddenly just started working – nothing had changed, I hadn’t touched it or even been near it. So we canceled the RMA and it’s been running since that day without incident.
But I have wondered if my hardware could be defective. I figured after a about the two month mark if still no correct device detection, I’d pose the question to Tech Support. It’s totally unclear to me how much of the detection occurs in the device, and what occurs on their end. Does anyone have insight into this?
