I hooked Sense up with solar 2 days ago. It seems to be running ok. No devices detected yet. Only the “OTHER” bubble is seen, and the SOLAR bubble during the day. I hope it can detect a few items in the next week or so. I have a few early questions I has hoping to learn.
How do I determine if my WIFI signal is strong for Sense? I have read that a strong WIFI signal is important to detection, but I am not sure how to check and see how strong the signal is according to sense.
How does one define a “noisy” house or panel? I have an old house with BX sheething grounds for many standard outlets. The panel is mixed however and has a lot of new BX with grounds and Romex with grounds. My panel is 200 Amp and 100% full of breakers. The amount of draw on each breaker is minimal however, and each 120v breaker may serve only 2-3 outlets or lights. The 220V items (Central AC, electric base board, hot water, dryer, stove, etc,) all have dedicated 220v breakers.
Is it far fetched to hope for at least one item detected within a week? Rather than seeing all clumped in an “other” bubble?
