Every electrical device has a unique electronic signature — its own voice.  The Sense home energy monitor listens to those voices through current sensors in your electric panel.  It records them millions of times per second.

Advanced machine learning detection algorithms work to distinguish one appliance from another — to recognize each individual voice. Over time, more and more devices are discovered as the Sense community grows.

This is “the party line” the hype.  Some devices even after 1 year are still not recognized. the Other bubble can’t be up dated manually.
