Just checking in after a long absence. In October I had to bugout of my lakefront home due to Lake Travis flooding in. First time since I bought a Sense, 4th time since built the house in 1996. No damage to house, it’s designed for it but I do have to pull electronics, empty garage, furniture, etc. which we have down to a fine art.
Unfortunately I didn’t make note of which lead of the Sense was clipped around which of the two 120v legs in the garage primary panel. After the lake receded, the walls dried out, I reinstalled all the zwave switches, wall sockets, grinder pump electronics(220v), lights, and the sense. After a few weeks of seeing very few devices recognized by sense (but some, accurately), I swapped the two leads. The number of devices added since then is very small.
I’m wondering if I would not be better off wiping everything from my Sense and letting it start anew. I realize the “always on” is well above average, which is not unexpected as I have a 3-story automated home with a variety of devices, such as a tablo, an Amazon Fire DVR, a Homeseer HS6 PC on 24/7, weather station, a variety of thermometers of the station, 5 LED wall socket flashlights that are always on charge and come on whenever electricity to the house dies. An extremely appreciated toilet bidet add-on that my wife will never do without again, preheats water for bidet functions, heats the seat 24-7, and has an LED 24/7. I could list several dozen separate electric devices that have either been lost circa the flood such as my 220v elevator, or never been ID’d by Sense. Would it be a better idea to wipe it all and start over?
