You may notice that the Sense Home app no longer includes the home device inventory that was previously housed in Settings. The Devices tab and detail views for each device on your list have been redesigned. As our technology has advanced, we’ve identified what information is likely to be most helpful in device detection.
We appreciate the time and effort of everyone who filled in an inventory in the past. That information has been incredibly useful in our early data science efforts. We are now moving to a shorter set of questions for new users that target key information about their homes in their earliest days with Sense.
Some of our changes will be immediately apparent as you update your app, and others will only impact users who are new to Sense (or those who complete a data reset).
Here’s an idea of what has been improved:
- Updated devices - along with a new look and feel, you’ll see details about your devices in a new order that aligns with feedback from the Sense community about what users find most important.
- Intuitive controls - if you have integrated devices set up, such as smart plugs or lights, you’ll see the on/off button in the app replaced with a toggle to make control more intuitive. Control for smart plugs can still be disabled from device settings if desired.
- Updated experience for new users - An initial survey to collect information about your home, heating, cooling, and appliances to pre-populate the device list. This is coupled with enhancements to device detection in the first couple of weeks for some key appliances.
