As Mike noted in his year-end blog post, one of our big initiatives for 2019 is helping our users save money and energy in their homes. It’s not a new initiative, but we’ll be hitting it with some renewed vigor throughout the year. This was also borne out in a recent survey we conducted with a large sample of our current userbase: energy cost reduction was the number 1 motivation for purchase. We firmly believe that Sense can help.
This is where you come in. Sense provides actionable insights, but the best way to turn these into savings is through effort and engagement. You’ve been great at providing real-life stories on this forum, but we thought a purpose-built platform would bring focus to this single topic and help grow the Sense community. We call it Sense Saves. Rather than focusing on your entire home, Sense Saves is structured so you can submit and search for pointed insights about specific devices or general device categories.
Sense Saves was designed with interaction in mind, to be a sortable and shareable database of user knowledge all focused on one core area: energy cost reduction. By sharing your story, you will empower others to track down similar wasteful devices in their homes. We also think that you’ll also learn more about potential savings to be had in your own home, with your devices.
Submission is easy. Just log in with your Sense account and you’ll be able to both post your stories and comment on other users’ posts. Be sure to add your name and an avatar for the best experience.
Note that Sense Saves is not a replacement for our home here at community.sense.com. This place is not going anywhere and I’ll continue to be your grateful, excited, and (hopefully!) helpful point of contact here. This place is full of deep and insightful conversations that could only happen on an open forum such as this and with a group of enthusiasts such as yourselves. If it’s helpful, think of Sense Saves as a new and improved “Share Your Sense Stories” subforum, but re-designed with features to make the information found there more actionable and simpler to digest for veteran and novice Sense users alike.
I hope to see you all there and can’t wait to read your stories!
And, of course, give us your feedback here in this thread!
