Detecting existing devices as new


#1

Sense reports that it has just detected “Fridge 8”. I have a total of 5 refregeration devices, all of which had been previously detected and renamed by me. I assume that for whatever reason, three of them have slightly different characteristics now that it is summer than they had in winter when I originally installed Sense. Likely I could figure out which one of the already identified devices is actually Fridges 6 through 8, but I can’t see a way to combine them.

This factor is rapidly turning an interesting system into an annoying one.

Sorry you’re experiencing this duplicate device issue @twlldyn! We’re working on a merge device function that will be useful in cases like this, and of course are always improving on our detection algorithms to prevent that from happening in the first place.
