Hello all, this is a bit of an update after ~2.5 weeks of Sense and I have to say it seems to be doing quite well for me so far. I do have a few questions I’d like to ask as explained a bit further down but first a general update. This evening will mark a full 16 days of sense and I’ve got 10 devices detected so far, mostly larger power appliances but some smaller as well. My largest device is my hot tub heater at ~5.5kW and my smallest is my chest freezer at ~62W. If anyone is interested in more details on my detection history, just ask and I can share but I am more interested in the following:
I mainly have 2 topics of interest:
First, Device detection conflation between Oven (Sense identified device) and Dryer (Not yet identified by Sense) or occasionally my Air Fryer (Sense identified device) and Dryer. I wouldn’t say I’m very concerned given how early I am into life with Sense but definitely interested in suggestions on assisting Sense to know the difference.
Second, I had an interesting case of how a device cycle appeared to be detected by Sense and how it got documented. In short, my water heater vent fan came on and was detected while sense app appeared to show it was on until ~8:38pm (I confirmed it was still on at about 8:35pm) but after it shut off, Sense documented it off in timeline and device power meter at ~8:28pm. Anyone else seen this? Possible bug or is it expected for Sense to review signal after off and make “corrections” to off time if it identifies a possible error?
