A Power Meter That Never Sleeps.
A Wattage chart for your whole home to help you identify device activity in real-time. Turn devices on and off to measure the changes while Sense learns.
It’s always just one click away.
See what’s up and know what’s on. Get a view into your home you can’t get anywhere else. See when the garage door opened, the television turned on, or when the dryer finished its cycle. Save a trip down the stairs!
Setup Alerts, Avoid Disasters.
Once detected, devices can be tracked here. Review individual statistics, a device-specific power meter, and manage settings.
Sure, it’s convenient to know when certain devices turn on and off, but it may just say your house, too. Heavy rains? See if your sump pump is running, or running too much! Think you forgot to turn off the oven? Set an alert to inform you if it’s been on for over an hour.
Save Energy and Money.
Understanding how much energy your home is using, when and where, empowers you to find savings. Sense gives you the tools to break it down and take action.
