— Video Description —
In this video, I’ll be talking about Sense home energy monitor. It’s a WIFI-connected energy monitor that monitors the real time power use of your home as well as tracking specific devices based on their electrical signatures.
With IFTTT support, it has some home automation capabilities, but the lack of a API or native support for webhook limits its usefulness… for now. Still, the data this device can generate is super insightful and can help identify major power consumers in your home.
