Since installing Sense, I have replaced (or otherwise retired) several devices that had been detected. For example, I’ve replaced my fridge and dishwasher (the new fridge has been detected, but not the dishwasher yet). I have also retired (and not replaced) a bottle warmer from when my babies drank from bottles (sniff, they’re so old now at 16 months!). I was wondering if it’d be possible to mark old devices as retired so that they wouldn’t ever be seen as “on” again, but to keep them around for historical data purposes. For instance, I think Sense confused my dryer for the bottle warmer earlier today. If Sense didn’t know what the load was without attributing it to the retired device, calling it Unknown would be fine (and would be more correct than using the device I know to be no longer in use).
For replacements, I know I could use the “merge device” function to have the old fridge and the new fridge just be THE fridge, but for some devices, there isn’t a replacement (or it hasn’t yet been identified).
