Terrible Tech Support.
I purchased this product thinking it was suppose to be easy. Nope. Install easy. Setup to get this basic app to connect to your sense monitor is a nightmare. I bought from sense hoping to get the latest software update but nope. My Bluetooth can see it but there basic app cannot connect. There tech support is only open 8-5 est time m-fri when most do it yourself buyers need them.
I am pretty tech savvy and have complete smart home from ranchio, wink, relay, hue, songs, etc and this is not for the people who don't like a Challenge. Support is very slow at responding and it's email only. If I would have known that I would have stayed away. When I pay top dollar I expect too service ya know. What a let down, hopefully it's great once I get it working. Shame......
UPDATE: So it appears there were issues with more than just mine. I actually was able to get connected using a iPad that I had not updated in quite some time. Once working the rest was easy. It has taken several days but it is recognizing my items and seems to be working great. So I would like to change my rating but would like to still state that I wish they had a 800# and was open at least sat.
Solid device that keeps getting better
I've had this in my home for about 5 months now. The metering has been extremely fast and accurate since the beginning, and the recent app updates have added great functionality that really shows the potential of this technology. I've had about a dozen devices discovered, and I get new ones every week or two, so it's continually improving. I'm pretty sure the $299 will pay for itself based on how much more conscious our family has become about our energy use, so I'm glad I got in early.
I really wanted to like this app. But...
I've had Sense for several months now. It's great when it works. However anytime there is a power interruption the device will go off line and You have to power cycle it to get it to come back on. This means either pulling the plug from the device or shutting of what ever breaker is sharing. I've lost tons of scanning and data collection due to this. This app has tons of potential if they'd just fix some of the minor bugs. *I contacted support several months back about the issue, they said they'd let the developers know of the problem.
