Option to expose missing data in Sense power meters and export

Today, there is no way to tell if your Power Meter or the device power meters (especially for smartplugs) are registering zero power consumption or missing data (NA - not available). Sense doesn’t differentiate in the UI, though I’m fairly certain that they know back at the mothership. Optionally exposing the NA data in a few components of the UI would give users a much better way to track network issues and other sources of data integrity problems. That might cause a few new headaches for Sense support, but also would help users diagnose lingering issues. For instance, I have found that Always On is particularly sensitive to NA data and often get’s buffeted incorrectly by 0s created by missing rather than true 0 data.
