So OF COURSE when we got to the cabin the Sense went down. I even checked to see if the solar circuit (that the Sense taps for power) was down and it appeared to be as well.
Showed the wife and she said she knew I was going to OBSESS about this if we didn’t go home, so after brunch we buttoned up the cabin and turned around. When we were driving home I checked to see that it was still down. The solar looked like it had gathered more power, but was not showing anything recent, so still looked down, but perhaps intermittent. Sense had no updates since noonish. I even had an email letting me know that the Sense was down.
We got home hours later and after unpacking the car I went looking at which breaker was tripped, but none were. So I looked at the Sense app again and it had just come up 9 minutes earlier. WHAT?
So I opened the viewer on my laptop to be sure it wasn’t the iPhone, and it showed the same thing. No data earlier than a 1/4 hour before. It was like it was trying to update and couldn’t get a connection. When we got back from the dog park however, the Sense app NOW showed data from 12:45pm or so all the way up to current. WHAT???
Where was that data hiding? Why did it pretend to NOT be recording the data? I think I just don’t know the solar well enough to judge when it’s not reporting, but I have had the Sense since May.
Overnight I saw the reconnecting dot pattern again every time I looked. This morning it was showing that so I went to the side of the house and turned the antenna 90° hoping that would make a change. When it connected it claimed there was no power being used but lots of solar was starting to come in. The web app showed the power was negative and the Signals section of Settings showed the power coming in was negative too. A message on the timeline said something like “Oops! Something is wrong, attempting to recover. Don’t make a change to the Sense setup whatever you do”
It then individually toggled the power for each leg from negative to positive and seems to have settled on it being positive, but it’s VERY high. Like it is adding the solar power to what it sees on the mains. As the solar has increased this AM so has the indicated power being used. Like instead of 1000 watts it’s showing 6000. It went back to saying “Sense is checking your Installation” so hopefully it will go back to normal soon.
