@deputypaulatl, assuming that you are responding to my suggestions and that Sense actually tagged those “spikes” you mention ? You didn’t post a screenshot, but tagged means Sense put a little numeric label associated with the power increase or decrease.
Second question - are you also seeing commensurate tagged down-spikes associated with those devices turning off ? I don’t thing Sense will detect a device based on “spotting” just the on or the off. It needs to recognize/tag both.
If it is tagging both the on and the off for a device, but not detecting it yet, there might be variety of reasons:
- It hasn’t seen enough transitions of that type to definitively cluster them.
- They ons and offs aren’t unique enough to classify as a unique device.
Both of these reasons require you to have some understanding of multi dimensional clustering and things like KNN algorithms.
Would be interesting to see a screenshot of the app Power Meter with a single on off toggle of your ceiling fan to see what they look like . Most ceiling fans today are electronically controlled via a DC motor so they don’t really look like motors from their on and and off signatures - more like general electronics.
