The Network Device Identification (NDI) feature leverages broadcast messaging data on your local network to inform the device detection capabilities of your Sense monitor. In keeping with our data privacy best practices, this is an opt-in only feature that can help Sense develop models to detect connected devices like televisions, game consoles, smart speakers, and more.
In fact, some models have already been developed and deployed for a number of connected TV brands and models, but you must have NDI enabled for your connected TV to be detected. It’s important to note that Sense must be connected to the same network as your connected devices or it won’t be able to detect them using NDI.
To enable NDI:
Inside the Sense App for iOS/Android, navigate to Settings > My Home> Data Sources and select Network Identification to enable.
Please note that we have not yet implemented functionality for enabling NDI from the web app.
