Device Detection Progress


#1

I’ve had my Sense installed since Dec 25, 2016, Christmas day.

PROGRESS (Sense Device | Renamed)

By Dec 27 (day 3) it had detected:

  1. Unnamed heat 1| Baseboard heater
  2. Unnamed heat 2 | Instant hot water tank
  3. Fridge | Beverage cooler

Today (Dec 29) it found three (Edit: four!) more devices!
4. Unnamed heat 3 <=Edit: Jan 2: I renamed this one dishwasher as it is the heating element in the dishwasher
5. Unnamed heat 4 <=Edit: I renamed this Dryer. It was originally 2200 Watts or so, but now it’s listed as 20.
6. Unnamed motor <= Edit: this device has since disappeared… Maybe it was the garage? Who knows.

Edit:
7. Garage door (my garage has two doors, but this seems to be for either one)

Edit Jan 1:
8. Dryer (now I have two Dryers… Ugh. Wish there was a way to combine the two)
9. Microwave

Funny thing about new devices 4,5, and 6 is that they show 0 Watts for average power and don’t show having ever run in the history. Will that update over time? Or is this a glitch? (EDIT: It did indeed update and change over time) I realize it’s pretty early yet, so I’ll update this if there is any change.


#2

It will update over time (and may even forget it). It seems like it starts to see a pattern and tells you about it before committing to identifying it; occasionally it scratches its head, crosses it off and goes back to the drawing board if something doesn’t add up :slight_smile:


#3

I have three unnamed motors, and they have been that way for a while and show no usage. Everyday I am hoping to see some usage on them so I can figure what they are.
