Recognise consumption of a particular device
Hope some of you can point me into the right direction.
I was checking two energy measurement products which were kind of similar (Smappee and Sense). As I understand from the product sheet these devices are able to detect a device which is turned on (I know not all of them) but when you turn on the Oven, the device recognises it as the oven. When you turn on the dishwasher it detects the dishwasher. It is stated as the electronic footprint of a device.
Now here's my question, does anyone have experience in this, or can someone give me a good starting point in creating this device?
Any help is much appreciated.
Regards, and keep up the good work.
