I know that the “Always on” number is like an average. At least that is what I have been told here previously. Because at one point I flipped every breaker except the one for Sense and the router/modem, and the “always on” figure didn’t change. And so I was told that it is a kind of daily average.

When I add that number to the other devices and “other” I get the total number that it is telling me. So that begs me to ask the question(s):

is the total number accurate, or:

is it a figure based in part on the “always on” estimation, or

is the number of W being issued to other devices and “other” an estimation based on the accurate total minus “always on”

You know what I mean? in order for all the devices to add up perfectly, if “always on” is not perfectly correct, then there must be a mistake with one of the other categories as well.

edit: at the end of the month, my power usage pretty much matches up with the meter. there is always a small difference, but I don’t know what time the guy from Entergy reads my meter. It’s not digital either, so there is a margin of error there. but I wonder if the data is accurate in the present, or if it is corrected by Sense later on after some time has passed, and the current reading is more of an estimate.
