The thing about most smart home solutions is that they force those interested in one to buy a wide array of devices for each individual appliance or item to be tracked. But with Sense, only one is needed exactly where it counts.
The Sense home energy monitor is a small box that attaches to a home’s energy panel. It is programmed with algorithms designed to identify each appliances individual “voice,” or the electrical signature it produces when consuming energy. In this way, Sense can distinguish the washer from the refrigerator from the air conditioner — avoiding the hassle of having a separate device for each.
