My Frigidaire freezer was not being detected and it has very similar cycles and wattage(150±watts) as my Samsung fridge. I bought a sense HS110 to help me see it’s energy useage.
What I discovered is the freezer has a 1watt vampire load.
Based on some other comments I’ve read in various threads. This ‘always on’ device has a little to no chance of being naturally detected by sense.
Even though this device will never cycle on/off of its own accord (due to that 1watt Vampload) It still has, at least to my view, a distinguishable power surge and drop with a regular pattern that can be otherwise construed as power on and power off.
Basically instead of a 0watt baseline it has a 1watt baseline.
I am curious what are the chances of my freezer and or other devices ever getting a natural sense detection?
