Hey All! As my sense unit continues to identify more and more large-load devices in my home, it seems to be picking up some steam in identifying loads (it makes sense - breaking apart the “Other” bubble would give a clearer image of the remaining energy usage).
I have used HS110s & HS300 to clear up some messy, difficult-to-detect waveforms - like my TV/Home theatre, and fridges. Integrated icemaker, ice dispenser, water dispenser, compressor, defrost coil, circulation fans, etc offered a nearly continual changing energy graph - a difficult task for detection.
That said, I have been making efforts to detect some of my smaller loads (bathroom fans, outdoor LED lights, garage lights (all garage lights on one switch). For example, in the latter hours of the evening, while energy consumption is minimized and fluctuating the least, I will run the bathroom fan timer and let it run a cycle uninterrupted (45 mins; in hopes of helping to capture a clean energy trend).
My question is: is there a minimum threshold that Sense uses to filter out trivial “noise” when detecting devices?
If so, is it possible to identify/reduce this threshold? Might a threshold prevent detection of smaller load (ie. 30-50W) devices? Or is a smart plug/strip the only solution?
Thank you all in advance for your help!
