It finished its checks eventually, and its detected my HVAC system so far. So thats good. There is a bit of weirdness yet, its detecting my general usage with a large 3d printer, 2 high wattage gaming computers with 5 monitors between them and a 60 inch led TV running as 65 watts. With those off and the lights off it goes to 56 watts. When my hvac system kicks on it shows 560 watts with spikes up to 2000 when the electrical heat strips kick in. Its like it’s not seeing any of the wattage from the sub panel. The sub panel is fed from the main panel via a breaker, and in turn feeds a tertiary panel. My solar panels feed into the tertiary panel and aren’t being monitored by the sense due to wiring logistics yet. So I think its seeing all the electricity in use, but the magnitude seems off based off what I expect from the meter readings and electrical bills. The 3d printer alone should be drawing at least 125 watts.
The 2 panels in the house aren’t dual fed. I double checked. The computer circuits and 3d printer are on the sub panel. I know that panel is fed via a breaker on the main panel, I know which breaker it is and can shut it off via that breaker.
So, knowing all that, any idea why I’m seeing less energy usage than I should? Especially at night when the panels aren’t doing anything? There is no battery backup present on the panels, though the computers and 3d printers are behind 1500va ups.
I’m still getting a useful amount of information, there seems to be a missing component though.
