What if any appliances or electrical loading intentional On/Off 5 times triggered Sense to detect and question what appliance or usage, that will force Sense to recognize all usages throughout pre-program detect and learn stage.
I’m not 100% positive what you’re asking. So you’re looking for some way to turn a device on/off five consecutive times and use that to trigger a device detection? If so, that’s just not possible. Sense needs to see device cycles many, many times over and this number varies across device types and even differs across homes. There’s just no discrete, consistent number of cycles Sense needs to see in order to learn.
@RyanAtSense an example of what @fasteddie3g3 is asking is, what if the Currently Learning screen was returned to the app and we could confirm that the device being learned is on-track, then even possibly enter in make & model numbers after it’s confirmed… Of course, Sense would still run its course during that Currently Learning period…

Unfortunately we removed that feature for good reason. It just ended up not being totally accurate and became more of a ‘feel good’ feature and we’d rather only provide information to you that is truly helpful. I think some incarnation of it is possible in the future, but we’d definitely make sure that it is performing reliably at a high level before implementing it.
What about at least adding its wattage? For example, I keep getting two room heaters conflated as the same one, but they are 1000W apart, one being 1kW the other 2kW. I keep repeatedly telling the system that its not on (its the other) to no avail. However, resistive loads are a constant current draw, constant wattage. My 2kW watt heater will never show up as a 1kW heater and vice versa. Given that they are both baseboard heaters im sure their signatures are very similar, afterall they do keep getting confused with one another so there is obviously enough similarity, that said, the wattage is different, and that is a differentiator!
