These simple sensors really excel as current sensors (since any AC current in a wire generates it's own magnetic field) and I easily was able to sense the line current from my electric coffeepot and toaster, just from mounting the sensor next to the line cord, with no electrical connection. With a bit of practice and tweaking of my code I was able sense whether a 100 watt bulb in a lamp was on or off.
