Thanks @RyanAtSense for cross-posting that blog entry … I missed that and it is very informative.
So, speaking of ground truth data:
Should the UI perhaps display waveforms for Sense-native-detection vs Ground Truth (smartplug & Mains/Solar PM) differently?
Posting screenshots to the Community sometimes reveals the ambiguity: “Is that the device PM or the Mains PM?”
A different color or label in the PM would be a couple of ways of doing it. e.g. Fridge via smartplug; Fridge detected by Sense.
In general, if a user sees a difference in the waveform rendering (color and/or a label) it will go some way toward explaining (without too much explaining and UI clutter) the distinct difference between ground truth data and Sense-algorithm-based-detection.
I don’t see that as being a downer like “Oh, great, a gray waveform” so much as a UI move toward reflecting the reality of the detection optimism.
Taking the waveform look another step into the future one could imagine that there might be a visual confidence indicator. “It’s gray, so wait”
