I bought Sense 14 months ago.
I hooked up Sense and sat back for a month because I truly couldn’t put time into it, but waited for discoveries, and waited until my work schedule would free-up time.
I had this very same thought you’re sharing as I began to tackle identifying my devices. I thought hard about this. I thought about this for months, but then I became much more savvy about pinpointing the device and resolving the device name. I learned a good portion of this through reading the forum in other people asking for help.
The reason I never asked for a library of wave forms is because I didn’t want a mess of human error…
My old fridge signature is very different from my new fridge I bought in July.
My clothes dryer has multiple stages of operation… how do I know when all stages were discovered as separate devices… did I merge them correctly?
If I wasn’t aware of the different power stages of my furnace/fan/heat pump combo… would I follow the correct wave form in a library of wave forms?
Another issue could be the occasional swapping device operation between a stove top burner and a coffee maker, I’ve experienced that, but this may not happen often.
I truly believe a pile of wave forms would have eaten up my time.
If I come to the forum and ask for help, not only will I get a wave form, but they’ll ask me for a copy of mine to help me out. Also, I’ll get the additional tips in sleuthing the device identification.
I know your post was meant for @Ryan, but I felt I’d share your post was a natural thought I had, too. Organizing and maintaining updates could be in vain and still produce the same posts that ask for help which produce amazing assistance and results.
