Needs Google Home and Google Assistant support since not everyone has Alexa. I've only had it for a week and has already identified the majority of my major appliances but has not detected anything smaller such as my TV or laptops. So far the usage per appliance seems pretty accurate and is close to what the power company shows as daily usage. I also wish it had the ability to tie into smart homes such as Wink or Smart Things.
Hilariously inaccurate disaggregation.
Just installed and so far its been great. Can't give it 5 stars right out of the gate but I think it will be once I have some time logged with it. Won't let me install on my tablet (XOOM w/Android 4.4) for some reason even though by the requirements it needs 4.3 or better. On my Galaxy Note it would be nice to be able to use the stylus to drag and zoom but the app doesn't recognize the stylus when its out. Also would be nice to be able to use the larger display and hopefully there will be a web -based app coming soon for PCs. For those that want to see how it works there are a number of videos on YouTube that will show how to install, how the app works, etc. 3/25/17 Update: It's been over 5 weeks and Sense still can't find my clothes dryer and it's still not sure about the garage door opener which gets used twice a day. Sense has been VERY slow to ID devices. 4/28/17 latest update crashes my phone. Had to remove app to stop repeated reboots. 5/15/17 Installed latest update, no change. Sense still has no clue about most of my equipment. I wish they would add the ability for users to ID a device they just turned on, then Sense would have a starting point. Still can't ID the garage door or clothes dryer, still claims to be learning.
Great product to monitor your energy consumption. Also allows you to monitor the performance of your appliances and see the programming logic in them, such as an ice maker.
Sense algorithm is not accurate, its very misleading about the appliances usage. Its not even discovering the device that are used almost daily. Not able to detect the washer. I turn heavy devices on off, nothing happens, doesn't indicate anything so as to know and label them even after a month. It is still lacking lots of features as compared to the other products on the market. I wish it has bill forecasting, billing cycle adjustments to match my billings, a web online interface. Also I noticed it gets confused a lot when similar devices are turned on. It says pops up same bubble for fridge door and kitchen pendant light. It tells me laundry dryer was turned on 12 times during one dry cycle. I did laundry 4 times since i installed it but got dryer was on for 38 times. Not sure why is that. Waiting for it to discover more devices. It got confused between dyer and kitchen convention oven. Sometimes bubble gets way too big that whole screen is completely covered by it. Definitely needs lots of work on it. After 2 months, it still hasn't discovered clothes washing machine which is used regularly weekly. It gets confused between electric car charger and electric clothes dryer shows incorrect information. I'm still waiting it to discover lot of devices that are being used every day. So far i believe that its algorithm needs to be fixed and make better, it still sounds in research and development phase.
A MUST HAVE for people with well pumps!
