I’ve had my dishwasher on a HS-110 for well over a year. About 3 weeks ago now, Sense detected a new device. It quickly became obvious that this new device was the water heating element portion of my dishwasher. Interestingly, this captures almost 85% of the ground truth power usage supplied by the HS-110.
I discovered that you cannot merge a detected device with a smart plug device. This makes sense, I guess, as the smart plug has the best possible accuracy. My question is, what should I do with the duplicate device, assuming I want to keep the HS-110 in use? Should I just delete it?
I could also go the other way; remove/repurpose the HS-110, and rely on the “good enough” 85% native power detection of the dishwasher. That’s not my plan, though.
