      Its nothing new though. Utilities have been doing it since the 80s, and companies like Bender have been offering smart circuit monitoring:

      If this means firmware updates for AFCI breakers, its a step forward at least in that regard.

        The phones started it. And being as smart as they are, will soon be in control of the smart breakers.....and perhaps the installer as well.

          They're already smarter than the Millennials that use them.

                Symmetrical is line-to-line, asymmetrical is line-to-ground.

                  Don't they mean DC offset?

                    Symmetrical means there are equal parts above and below the zero axis line of the waveform. Asymmetrical means there are unequal parts above and below, as would be found with a DC offset.
                    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

                      But as I've said before, this was and is inevitable.
                      I'll also PASS.
