Sense Paid for Itself In 1st Month!

"We live in Massachusetts so the cost per kwh is inherently much more expensive than average in USA, hence the higher savings in adopting sense…the culprit was the water circulation pump draining the 80 gallon water heater on a continuous basis!"

Sense Helped Find Water Heater Leak.

“My outdoor kitchen has a 6 gallon under sink hot water heater. It normally consumes 1.3kW at 1:30 duty cycle, so 1.04kWh/day. Yesterday morning it started to cycle on much more frequently…maybe a 4:10 duty cycle, thus 12.48kWh/day.”

Time to Clean the Refrigerator Coils.

"Bought our current home in December of 2017. First this home was our vacation and retirement place as we lived in another location due to my job. I noticed after 12 months, the refrigerator that came with the home, was on longer than others..."

Avoid Disaster.

Sure, it’s convenient to know when certain devices turn on and off, but it may just save your house, too. Heavy rains? See if your sump pump is running, or running too much! Think you forgot to turn off the oven? Set an alert to inform you if it’s been on for over an hour.

How Sense Works.

Sense reads your home’s current 1 million times per second to detect small changes in magnitude, phase and frequency. Once familiar, Sense uses machine learning to distinguish different appliances. The longer you use it, the smarter it gets.

Home Insight Found Nowhere Else.

Your home can tell you a lot and Sense is finding new ways to provide visibility to what’s happening and hiding. Through Labs, we preview new features that help you become more energy efficient. Read more here or check out the projects below.

Simple Installation.

Sense is a small but powerful computer that install inside your electrical panel.
It should be installed by a licensed electrician. The process usually takes 30 minutes.
Once the monitor is connected, setup is completed in the app.

Good to Know.

What is dedicated circuit monitoring?
Sense users can now use the middle port to track up to two separate 120V/240V circuits in their electrical panel. Dedicated installation requires that the middle port is unused by solar, generator, or 400A split-service monitoring (or another feature.) For instructions on setting up Sense with Dedicated Circuit Monitoring, please consult the Sense with Dedicated Circuit Monitoring Installation Guide.
How does Sense work?
With clamp-on current sensors, the Sense Home Energy Monitor takes current and voltage measurements over 1 million times every second. From this incredibly high-resolution data, it derives the electrical signatures of individual devices. In comparison, most “high resolution” smart meters only take measurements every couple of seconds…hardly real time! You can read more about how Sense works in this blog post. Within the first week of installation, Sense should be able to find some common devices that cycle on and off frequently, like your refrigerator or microwave. Some devices will take longer to identify, until the algorithms have seen enough contextual data to reliably detect them. There are devices that Sense won’t be able to recognize right away, but as more Sense Home Energy Monitors are installed across the US and Canada, our machine learning algorithms will have more data to generate models from, and the device detection capabilities will just keep growing!
Is Sense compatible with my home?

To ensure you have the best experience with Sense, the following compatibility specifications are recommended:

Your home has:
2.4Ghz Wi-Fi network with consistent internet connection. Sense is not compatible with 5Ghz Wi-Fi signals.
Its own electrical meter and accessible electrical panel.

Your mobile device
runs on iOS or Android and has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Your electrical panel:
Is a split-phase 120/240V or a 400A split-service residential panel with individual panels up to 200A.
Must have enough space to fit sensor clamps with HxWxD dimensions of 3.375″ x 2″ x .75″ (85.73 x 50.8 x 19.05mm), and an inside diameter of 1”. The Sense current sensors may not be able to fit around busbars. Our sensor cables are 46″ (116.84cm) long and our power cable is 36″ (91.44cm) long.
Does not drop below 32°F (0°C) or exceed 154°F (68°C).
Is not exposed to water or areas with high condensation (Sense complies with ANSI/IEC 60529 Rated IPx0).

Does Sense charge subscription fees?
No. There is only a one-time cost for the Sense energy monitor. Use of the Sense mobile and web apps is included. New features and enhancements are free via app updates and over-the-air software upgrades.
Can Sense detect all devices?
Even before Sense discovers devices in your home, it’s easy to see how much energy they consume just by turning them on and off and watching the Power Meter in real time. Check this video to learn more. Once Sense completes the signal check process, it will start detecting devices in your home.  Sense is able to identify many electrical devices in typical homes, and we continue to expand our device detection abilities via crowdsourced data as more Sense monitors come online. However, it likely won’t detect everything. Low-wattage consumer electronics like computers, smart devices, and game consoles can be especially tough to track. As we get data from more and more homes, the performance and coverage of our device detection will improve. In the meantime, many of our users have had great success tracking these more challenging loads via our smart plug integration.

How do you keep my data secure?

At Sense we take security very seriously and we do everything we can to ensure your data is secure. All communications between the Sense monitor, the Sense cloud servers, and Sense apps are encrypted with AES 128-bit encryption and TLS/SSL (HTTPS). Sense uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) for cloud servers and online storage. Personally identifiable information like email address and account information is stored in physically separate systems from any application data. Physical security is managed by Amazon and access to these production systems is limited to a very small group of Sense engineering team members.

Automated systems process the data collected from Sense monitors to detect devices, send notifications, generate report emails, and power the Sense apps. Sense never shares any of this data with 3rd parties without explicit user opt-in on a case-by-case basis (for example, when a utility wishes to provide discounts/services to their customers in exchange for sharing limited power data.) Sense support employees will on occasion need to access some of this data to troubleshoot issues, but again we will only access this data with explicit permission from you.
