Just purchased the Aeon Labs Aeotec ZW095-A Z-Wave Home Energy Meter (2nd Edition)

Have some concern with its accuracy.... I have not installed it yet...

I have an older Aeotec 9104ZWUS Smart Energy Monitor. I have been using it for a year. Below is a graph comparing the values from the Aeotec to the values from my power company. The correlation is excellent but the Aeotec values are 43% higher than those from the power company. I don't know why. I have posted this question in the past, but I have never received an explanation.

I saw the sense on "Ask This Old House" a few weeks ago and was intrigued, so I contacted the developers.

They said they are still working on the core product so they have not released an API yet, however, they are considering it for the future and just added IFTTT integration. They're working on a web app as well. I'm thinking if they have a web app, someone here can figure out how to pull data from it.

I think the product looks very promising. The segment from This Ask This Old House is available here: https://www.thisoldhouse.com/how-to/...rical-metering

I've seen a number of posts on reddit and other places indicating that it doesn't pick up a lot o loads well or at all. There are a few similar systems on the market and they all appear to have the same problem.

Sense

Sense just offer me addition 30 days on the money back refund (for total of 60 days).
I thinking about ordering it. If I'm not happy I will send it back.

Btw, I also heard about the issue of Sense not detecting smaller load. The feedback that I have seen is that people are not patient enough and it takes the Sense a while to identify the smaller load.

I've seen reports of it not picking up large loads like refrigerators too. Small loads only I could understand. I personally prefer something that measures each load specifically. The technology has promise, but I'm not sure it's ready yet.
