I finally had a chance to convert an old Intel NUC that I had lying around into a dedicated Home Assistant server. I wish I had done it sooner ! Seems like a great way to pull data from multiple Sense monitors and multiple non-integrated other home automation systems together. Within a couple hours of having my HASSOS server running, I was able to integrate data from my 2 Sense units, my 2 Ecobees, 3 of my 4 NuHeat Thermostats (one isn’t playing nicely with the home network) into an integrated dashboard for my electric usage. One of the biggest benefits is the ability to “overlay” data from the 2 Senses while also seeing what is going on with my thermostats.
For context, all of my energy data is coming from my 2 Senses. 99% comes from my main Sense, but the second Sense has my Model 3 and the Floor Heater Subpanel (since my main Sense is already doing solar). In the shot below, I have forced my family room floor to heat up. Sense has done a native detection of my conflated Dryer / Floor Heater. I can also see that the DCM monitor picking up the same floor heating coil in action.
Also very nice to be able to arrange my biggest users a little more logically, with my furnace units paired with each ones AC compressor partner, and with all the cars close together. I’m going to be interested to see how my Sense detected Model 3 and the DCM Model 3 compare, but that only happens after midnight !
