This behind-the-scenes update improves device detection on multiple fronts.
We’ve made broad improvements to how and when Sense issues updates to detected devices, with improvements that should reduce losses to the reliability of detected devices. In addition, we’ve improved the logic behind how and when Sense combines devices and how you’re notified of such combinations. As a reminder, Sense may automatically combine devices in your home if we have strong evidence that suggests they’re exact duplicates or tracking the same devices across two different legs of a home’s electrical panel.
You may notice a few changes as this update rolls out, including new or combined devices.
What is changing?
- General improvements to the consistency and reliability of detected devices
- Overall reduction in duplicated devices
- Improvements to how and when we automatically combine devices
- Communicating device updates in a more helpful way, so you know why Sense made certain changes
Please note that this is a backend update and is not connected to any particular app or firmware version. All Sense monitors are using this updated software. There is no user action needed.
