Today, we’re releasing v40 to all monitors. This release is available on iOS v39.0 build 1658 & Android v39.0 build 1350 and introduces a new feature to help users better understand their peak energy usage along with some quality improvements to the Sense app and Monthly Email report.
Sense currently issues a “peak” event alert when your real-time peak has exceeded your previous real-time peak, e.g., “You hit an all-time high energy use peak at 11 am of 12,154 W (previous 10,100 W).” Now, you can see what devices are responsible for a high usage spike to more easily identify malfunctioning appliances and make sure things are running when they are supposed to be. This can be received via email as well as the timeline. Email notifications for Peak Devices can be enabled via Settings > Notifications > Emails > New Peak.
Monthly Email report updates
We’ve added a new Top Movers section to the Monthly Email report, so you can see what devices cost you more this month compared to last, or what devices you cut your usage of the most month-over-month.
This release also includes a variety of other quality-of-life tweaks to the Sense app, including:
* Redesigned Usage card on the Trends screen to provide more information at a glance
* The notifications settings screen has been reorganized for usability
* New animations to improve the legibility of app graphs
* Variety of other additional tweaks and bug fixes
