Hey all, a quick question regarding device detection vs smart plus for a washer and dryer.
It’s only been a few weeks, but Sense has not detected anything regarding my LG washer & dryer (gas). I’ve also read comments from several people noting that detection of modern washer/dryers is difficult due to the high variance in the motor patterns.
I have a couple of HS300s that I have used to address some of my Always On consumption and I have been happy with them. I also have a couple of Kasa KP-115s that I haven’t deployed yet, and I am considering using these for the washer & dryer. I am wondering people’s opinions regarding this… both positives and negatives. Is there a downside to using smart-plugs for these devices? Should I just wait and hope that Sense eventually recognizes the washer and dryer?
I assume that if I do put smart plugs in place for the washer & dryer, I will need to leave them there. Is this correct? Or can I use the smart plug to train Sense what the washer & dryer look like and then move them somewhere else to use for a different purpose?
