Interesting Device

device-detection

#1

Hi, This is a strange one, and am hoping someone can assist. This device was detected almost immediately upon installation, but I have no idea what it could be. Doesn’t use much power, but runs a lot and for just about 20 seconds at a time. Any ideas what I should look for please?


(I’m hoping you can read the screen capture above).

Would be helpful to see a Power Meter display from a mobile device, with enough resolution to see the switch-on transient.


#3

Yep. See the attached. Thanks for any inputs.


#4

Can you pull that event or similar from the power meter display just for that device? We’ll be able to see the transient better than in the Usage display


#5

Ok, understand. Please see two timeframes here.

You could almost set your watch by it.

Worst comes to worst, you can shut off breakers individually to narrow it down.

Got it! I unplugged the Toto heated toilet seat, and it went away. Back on, and reappeared - same signature. It doesn’t use much power, but it does cycle on and off quite a lot. I see gaps when it goes into ‘power-saving mode’, but they are short and don’t seem to affect much. Thanks all.

Ah, the price of comfort!

Now if it was a smart toilet seat that could sense an impending visit …


#9

Actually, they make one that raises the lid as you approach :slight_smile: - bit pricey at $900 each tho!

Wish I had seen this sooner, might have suggested a heated toilet seat as I have one too and it was one of the first devices my Sense picked up. By the way, I live in NH and right now it’s -12F, so my wife is really loving it!

This is helpful, I have an unknown device that is less regular and uses up 700 watts… but only on for 10seconds at a time. Wonder if it is the lizard heating pad under it’s cage??? Thanks for the lead.
