I’m very interested in this thread. I installed sense 10 days ago. So far, the only ‘major’ devices identified are one of two water heaters. Appliances identifed are two refrigerators, a microwave and some minor consumers.
Two Trane heat pumps with electric auxiliary heat show up as other along with a second hot water heater. Although the two hot water heaters are different sizes, they have the same heating elements. I am sure they are not lumped together by looking at the consumption patterns.
I thought, until I read hoveringuy’s post, that the heat pumps might be identified early. They are different size (3 ton and 2 ton equivalent from the cooling side). One has three heat strips, the other has two. Both have their own ComfortLink Thermostat. No luck so far. It would be nice if it were possible to be able to add devices to the list, even if they are not picked up by Sense, so that I could keep tabs of usage versus scheduled performance and outside temperature.
I’ll follow this thread with interest.
