In the Unknown group, Sense might be able to separate the various devices that repeatedly turn on/off. This way you might have, for example have 5 unknown devices, but all with unique enough signatures to be regularly recognized. Being able to drill into them, you could supply info on them, which might help Sense on the algorithms.

To help with the data analysis, and to see what devices people are using (as opposed to what is already detected by Sense), what if users were able to enter a device’s attributes to essentially be a wish list of items they’d like to be eventually able to be seen.
Eg. Say I have a device like a TV that I’d like to be detected. I would enter information like
Device Type: TV
Manufacturer: BigName TV Manufacturer
Model #: abc123xyz
Voltage: 120V (as opposed to 240V)
Which side of mains the power …
Many devices can be universally detected by an algorithm based upon the turn on signature. However, it seems that many devices can not.
So there are 2 ways I suspect that other devices can be detected.
After the fact, the turn off signature (possibly in combination of other information) could indicate that a device was on. While not useful to know what’s currently on or off, it would be useful for the log associated with the device.
If home-specific algorithms were applied, then devices c…
