So, I had my Espresso maker plugged into the HS110 for a couple of months, but now that I have the information, I wanted to use it for something else, or even nothing at the moment. The HS110 has been sitting on the shelf for a week and is not even plugged in, but it still shows in the “devices”:
In the app, I can try to configure the smart plug and answer “what’s plugged into that smart plug”. For some reason “nothing” is not an option. Why not?
Similarly, on the web app, I can still find the Espresso machine, but since it is no longer on the smart plug, it no longer shows any activity under that device.
There is no obvious way to remove the device. The TPlink name is greyed out. If I click on the name and change from “smart plug” to something else and save changes, it reverts back to “smart plug” next time I look.
How Can I tell Sense that a different device (or even nothing!) is connected to the HS110???
(One of the more annoying things with my Espresso maker is that both Off and Standby uses about the same amount of power (~2w) and SENSE cannot tell the difference and confuses the two. According to Sense, it has be on for ~12000x this month, while I actually turn it only on once a day… :o. This should be tuned better)
