UMASS Smart* Home Data Set

Although not collected specifically for energy disaggregation, the Smart* (Smart Star) data set provides power data from 3 thoroughly sub-metered real households. The granularity of data collected for circuit level monitors (premises aggregate and individual circuits) is one reading per second, while individual plug loads are measured roughly every few seconds. Each house contains 21-26 circuit meters and almost all appliances are measured using plug meters.

The data is available for download from the UMassTraceRepository. At the moment, aggregate, circuit and appliance data is available for house A, but only aggregate data is available for houses B and C. I've also updated my post on Public Data Sets for NIALM.

  1. Hi there -- thanks for the interest in our dataset. Just thought I'd let you know that our initial data release is now available at the repository linked above. Hope you find it useful!

    1. Hi Sean, thanks for the update. I can see the aggregate, circuits, and appliance data is available for house A, but it looks like only aggregate data is available for houses B and C. Do you plan to release this data or have I misunderstood?

    2. Hi Oliver - you are correct that we have only released aggregate data for B and C at the moment, but we plan to continue releasing data in the future (which will probably include finer grained data for all homes). Our most extensive data is from Home A, so we've initially focused on that.
