@ben @kevin1 We checked in with the dev team and current smart plug implementation does not differentiate between ‘used’ and ‘un-used’ plugs when polling them. An ‘off’ plug is polled at the same rate as an ‘on’ plug, as we need to look for status changes; thus, it uses the same amount of bandwidth. We’ll update that FAQ question to reflect this. We’re still comfortable with the recommendation for around 20 plugs, but it ultimately depends on lan/wan conditions. This is not a limitation built into the Sense app or the respective Kasa/Wemo APIs.
@ritchierich The wattages attributed to those plugs will be removed from Other. If you’re monitoring devices that Sense has detected (either partially or fully) be sure to follow the What’s Plugged Into this flow to prevent duplicate reported wattage.
If Sense detects an Always On load on those plugs, it will be reflected in the Always On Device Details screen. Here’s what mine looks like:
To everyone – we’re continuing to test the new KP115 plugs. If you’ve set them up, please report any issues in this thread. So far, things are looking promising.
