Garage heater: Dr Heater / DR966
Dryer: GE / DPSE810EG5WT
My Sense keeps detecting my 3000/6000w 240V garage heater as a dryer. I’ve deleted it once at the request of support team.
It features a motor running the fan, and a large heating element. It makes sense that it’s detected it as a dryer. (No pun intended).
It has also detected my dehumidifier as a fridge.
I’ve reclassified it as a dehumidifier.
Three questions. I hope they make sense…
Does manually changing categories have any effect on the algorithm?
(For example: many people have multiple fridges but not many clothes dryers. If I leave the garage heater a a dryer, will I prevent Sense from ever recognizing my real clothes dryer?)
Does the original category, under which a device is detected, have any effect on future device recognition IF that device is reclassified under another category?
Does Sense Support have any suggestions on how to cope with Sense detecting my garage heater as on when the dryer is in fact running?
Thanks for all the hard work. Great tool! Gave 2 as gifts
