My question is simple, has Sense changed/updated their HVAC detection this summer? My forced AC used to be reliably detected, but the past several weeks or month it stopped and is maybe detected 50% of the time. Sense has missed the off signature a lot, resulting in Sense saying the AC has been on for hours and hours when it hasn’t. That usage also meant that there was a direct mismatch in the power meter and devices tab. Just last night, two new motors and another HVAC were detected, but none of that has been updated, serviced, cleaned, or even touched at all.
- Has anyone else seen their HVAC detections change this summer? Was it for the better or worse?
- For Sense developers, is there a way to do a basic query of the power meter, compare that with the totals from the devices section, and then use ML/AI to help figure out where the mismatch, if there is one, is from? Example: if my mains say I’m using 5,000w but there’s only 1,000w of current on devices, but Sense thinks my 4,000w AC is on, then maybe it should go back in time and reanalyze for an off signature it may have missed?
I can provide screenshots if anyone is interested, but I’m not sure they’re necessary for these questions.
