Common Questions About Sense Energy Montior
How does it work?
The way that Sense works, is that it monitors your home's electrical usage. From there, it learns the unique signature that each device has to determine when it is running. From this analysis Sense can estimate how much your monthly electrical bill will be, send you alerts if a device is running longer than normal, let you know when a device turns on or off, and show much power each device is using.
