Note: The Sense Home Energy Monitor should be installed by an electrician or qualified professional, and should be installed in compliance with all applicable local codes.
Installing Sense is very straightforward and generally takes a licensed electrician less than half an hour to complete.
When speaking with your electrician, let them know that Sense is an energy monitor that installs in your electrical panel with two clamp-on current sensors around the mains, and a 240V breaker which Sense uses for its power supply and also to measure voltage on both legs. Unless you have a spare 240V breaker in your panel, your electrician will likely need to provide a new one.
You may also wish to share with your electrician this blog post and video to help them get a better idea for what's required.
A set of installation instructions is also included in the package, and available online. We also provide an Installation Video, below.
