Reporting Power Usage for New Device Discovery


Would it be possible to include the power usage of a new device during device discovery?
Could be useful in tracking down what new device actually is in cases of ambiguous labeling.
I had to search around a bit when “Appliance Light” was actually discovered. It turned out to be the refrigerator light when I opened and closed the refrigerator door. I initially deleted it when I saw all the activity and I did not connect my actions with the light.


How would you like that relayed to you? So, like an average consumption of the device sent in the discovery notification?


Just the average power during the discovery process.
for instance, “New device discovered, Heater 1, 500 watts”


This is available in the “stats” section of a newly discovered device. Are you looking for more prominent placement?
