My name is Jay Basen. I have been a smart home hobbyist for over 25 years and have spent more than 12 years as a professional designing and programming smart home systems in homes as large as 75,000 sq. ft. I am now now retired from day to day programming and as a way to give back to the industry that I’ve enjoyed so much I have started writing on smart home technology. I have just finished an article on energy monitors, including Sense. I thought that people in the Sense community might find it interesting. You can find the article on the Residential Tech Today Magazine web site here: https://restechtoday.com/does-an-energy-monitor-really-add-value-to-a-smart-home/
After writing the article I replaced an almost 10 year old energy monitor in my own home with a Sense monitor. As I gain experience with the Sense monitor I hope to become a valued contributor to the community.
I also have a blog on smart home technology that might be of interest to people here. The blog is primarily targeted to professionals in the industry but I believe that a lot of the content is also relevant to homeowners and hobbyists.
