So first of all, as a new Sense user and relatively new to the community I’ve drawn some early opinions about bubbles
1 - I hate the bubbles
2 - I really hate the other bubble
I know I’m probably making the Sense UI team hate me but the choice to make the “other” bubble grey in color is like a form of gamification to a geek. It’s a combination of frustration and motivation to outplay the dreaded grey bubble. That “other” bubble represents the unknown in a house you thought you knew. The community forum lights up with discovery questions because everyone wants Sense to find those mystery devices and make that grey bubble vanish!
Today, thanks to plugs, discovery of 2 devices (yay I can say 2 now), a lot of manual entry in the always on devices, and the ability to use HA for Kasa Emulation I’ve rid my Sense of the grey bubble (until my EV charges, but we’ll pretend like that doesn’t happen since I’m asleep)!
