The rational use and management of energy is a key objective for the evolution towards the smart grid. In particular in the private home domain the adoption of widescale energy consumption monitoring techniques can help end users in optimizing energy consumption behaviors. While most existing approaches for load disaggregation and classification requires high-frequency monitoring data, in this paper we propose an approach for detecting and identifying the appliances in use by analysing
