Sense is compatible with most split-phase residential electrical panels in North America. Your panel must have enough space to fit sensor clamps with dimensions of 3 3/8"H x 2"W x 3/4"D, and an inside diameter of 1”. Our sensor cables are 46 inches long and our power cable is 36 inches long.
Sense can work with multiple panels as long as they are sub-panels, and Sense is installed in the main breaker panel. If you have a separate service for each panel then Sense can only work with one of them, and you will need multiple monitors to monitor your whole home. The Sense app cannot currently aggregate data from two Sense monitors at once and so, in order to handle a multi-monitor configuration, you will need to create two separate accounts and track one monitor from each account. In the future, we are planning to add this multi-monitor compatibility to the app, so stay tuned.
Busbar panels must have enough clearance for the sensors to clamp around the busbar.
Recessed or flush-mounted panels
Sense is compatible with flush-mounted panels. You can read more about the installation process here.
Sense does not currently support three-phase systems (typically found in commercial buildings).
At this time, Sense does not support a parallel feed configuration. We are working on a solution to better accommodate this configuration and hope to have it available in the near future.
To install Sense outdoors, it must be enclosed inside an appropriate NEMA-rated enclosure, and adequately protected from the elements. Sense is compatible only in the following environmental conditions:
Relative humidity <90%; IPX0 rating, no water ingress
Elevation < 3,000m
