I thought I was the only one thinking about device detection. Finding the forum I see I am not unique!
several comments about why sense is counter intuitive. I understand that. It would be great to hear what we might be able to do to help. Are there other devices that we could buy and plug our devices such as refrigerator, coffee maker into for temporary training? Are there other clamps we can install in panel temporarily and move them around?
I joined a university after many years in industry. Seems like a lot of opportunity for new thoughts by engaging student teams. I also understand need for keeping core knowledge proprietary. Maybe there is a balance to get more parallel learning to problems highlighted by users.
having device level monitoring is what initially attracted me to sense. The total house monitoring it now does well. Is the top level summary being used effectively? Is there more that could be done sharing data series across users? Block by location for common external weather effects etc. generate possibilities to create projects for students and others to explore. Are there system integration possibilities? I have insteon all over the house. Nest thermostats.
A few thoughts. I am interested to see this work. There are many it seems who feel the same. Having some productive way to do more would be terrific and if I have to spend some more money that would be ok.
