Getting Better All of the Time
Sense has been an awesome addition to our household. We have been able to lower energy consumption to the lowest it has been in 5 years (since moving into our house) and make smarter choices regarding eco cycles on appliances (spoiler: they work!!!). While it may not be a perfect product yet, the Sense team seems to be working on making it more awesome and useful as time goes on.
Want it to work but ☹️
Installed the hardware monitor Dec '16. Over a 5 month period it identified 35% of my home's electrical usage. That isn't good enough for me. Per tech support (in order to get above 35%) I reset the data collection about 1 month ago. Result: I haven't been able to use the device since. It remains in "check" mode. There is a real (good) product in this idea, but as others have said, we are all beta-test subjects. I WANT this to work, but after 5 months I'm feeling used more than satisfied. IMO I'd wait another 6 months.
