And while I like the new heat icon, it does bring up a very small issue:
I live in a warm climate, and have “heat pump” systems… but, most of the year, those systems are working to cool the house, so it’s weird if I mark them as “heat pumps”, because then they get a flame icon.
So, instead, I mark them as “AC” (snowflake icon), which has a much more accurate icon, though a less-accurate description of the device.
From a technical perspective, I think the “heat pump” is a better classification (than “AC”) for these systems, and ideally that would have an icon indicating heat and cool (since the systems will heat/cool as needed).
Sorry if that’s a little OCD… but these devices are the absolute top power users at my house (almost 60% of my total power usage), so it would be cool to categorize them properly. (Very sorry for the pun. )
Obviously no need to rush out an improvement for this, maybe just something to put on a list for a future improvement someday? Thanks!
Shouldn’t the grid icon for Texas be non-existent right now?
Just Kidding for all the Sense users in Texas. But seriously, are Texas solar plus battery users implement fine right now? A scenario like this worries me about grid tying a solar install, but then again, I’ve only lost power where I live now 3 times in the past 7 years and two of those were for less than an hour each. The third did last for several days though.
One minor suggestion is to include the duration that a device was on for. See my attached screenshot. I can do the math, but in order to see if something is running more or less than normal, a simple (on for 22 min) like is present on the top of the device page would be a nice, minimal, addition. Of course I don’t know how easy or not that is on the backend.
