About Sense Labs

We’re excited to announce Sense Labs - a new space where users can try out our latest projects, share information and offer feedback directly to the engineers who developed them.

Our first project focuses on electrical fault detection. We’re starting with a motor stall detector, and we plan to release projects related to power quality (including voltage data) soon.

We don’t expect to detect faults in your home perfectly, but we want to share our data with you as we develop our thinking around these projects. Your feedback will be very helpful as we develop this technology. We’ve also collected some resources for users who want to learn more about motor stalls and investigate a potential motor stall in their own home further.

I just learned about sense labs today. so I checked it out. the power quality graph is great. our LED lights flickered yesterday. the reason was recorded in the power quality output. a dip to 65 volts!!
Power in my neighborhood is terrible. it’s all underground with most of the transformers boxes being from the 70’s. this is very cool data.
