The journey with Sense begins by installing the Sense energy monitor into a home’s electric panel. The first step in this process is booking an electrician. Since we realize this can be a bit of a hurdle, we’ve worked hard to ensure that the rest of the installation process is quick and easy – our survey results speak for themselves!
Do I really need an electrician to install Sense?
We strongly urge you to hire an electrician. The installation process itself is quite simple, but tinkering around in your electric panel can be very dangerous. Even once you turn off power on the main breaker, the service mains are still live.
The following results are based on survey data sent to Sense customers after their monitor is installed.
