Why do some current sensors have a different shape?

You might have noticed that the current sensors that are included with the Sense Home Energy Monitor look a bit different nowadays. They’re slimmer than our first-generation sensors and their shape is more oval. They have a locking mechanism to keep them closed in tight breaker boxes and fit better in more styles of electrical panels, including combo panels with limited space. But in case you think this is an upgrade for all Sense users - they’re not. If your sensors are working fine, there’s no need to replace them. The technological performance of these newer sensors is the same as our original sensors.

Let us know if you have any questions about the new current sensors design. As always, if you have any problems with Sense installation or operation, get in touch with our support team.
