Thanks. I’m betting the variable speed motors are the challenge. My old school Liftmaster garage doors are picked up by Sense like clockwork. They are one model year to early to be IoTable via SmartIQ.
I agree completely with you that Sense needs take a new tack, though on training, not detection. They need smarter feedback both from humans when detection goes askew, and from smart controllers when known devices are turned on/off. The trick with the former is to do it in a very structured way, so humans give Sense unambiguous training information. And the hard thing about the latter is building robust integrations with the dozens of automation APIs that users are likely to encounter.
I think we’ll see increased progress on the detection side for harder devices as the training feedback improves.
