I had my Sense a month now. 1st Detection was the AC about 48 hours in. Single Speed Compressor 5 Ton Heat Pump.
As I put more items on smartplugs, it became more obvious that something associated with the AC wasn’t registering on the “AC” device and remaining on after the “AC” cut off.
Obviously the Air Handler.
So, ordered the Sense 2CT Expansion Kit.
Found the circuit the Air Handler was on and connected it up. And that explains the “other” 400-500 watts just as I had suspected.
Now, I go into the CT device management setting and Sense wants to know what circuit this is monitoring so it doesn’t duplicate the readings. I cannot chose AC as that detection is on a different circuit.
No merge button on the CT Devices Management Tab.
Trying the opposite approach, I open my detected “AC” Compressor Management Tab. Open merge, but I’m only given option to merge with detected devices, which the CT does not qualify as.
So how do I merge my AC and my Air Handler into 1 device for an accurate reading of my true AC use and costs?
