I have completed the device inventory but don’t understand what sense uses this for. Also by completing the Make and Model info does this help with device detection?
@treznik, good job completing the inventory. I think there are two purposes for it today, based on the note at the bottom in the phone app.
- It’s used to help determine similar homes in the similar homes comparison.
- It is also used so Sense can get some idea of the mix of devices within the users community.
Don’t look at it as a “checklist” for your home Sense monitor to find, as some new users tend to see it. There might be a case where Sense uses your info on big consumption user devices like EVs and HVAC so they can refine their models for those types of devices - some of those devices, like specific models of EVs have specially tuned detection models today.
