I setup the dedicated circuit monitoring today on a inverter heat pump and garage mini split unit I have and wanted to provide some feedback to sense. The setup process is a bit confusing. The sense incorrectly detected the two devices, the names of the devices were flipped so I started the whole process again and swapped the names in the setup process. This likely happened because the app is not clear when to turn on each device.
When you get to the setup screen where it asks you to turn on the devices it is not clear when to turn on the devices, the second time I did it I realized it takes a bit to get past the first step which is just the app chugging away with “setting up the sense” before you get to the setup where you turn on the devices. I would recommend changing the setup process to have one device at a time so it shows you a screen that says “setting up sense”, then it goes to a new screen where it asks you to turn on device 1, then a new screen where it asks you to turn on device 2 so they can be correctly labeled in the app.
The other issue I had with this app version is my smart plugs that I use to monitor power of dedicated devices defaulted the standby power threshold to right at the borderline of what the devices uses so the sense kept showing these always on devices as on and off. I had to manually go in and turn the standby threshold back down to 1watt on each device.
