1. A computer-implemented method comprising:
obtaining, from one or more sensors installed at a property, sensor data that indicates one or more attributes of the property;
determining a total estimated gas consumption of a plurality of gas consuming appliances at the property, including, for each gas consuming appliance;
determining, using the sensor data, a likely operating status of the gas consuming appliance; and
determining, using the likely operating status of the gas consuming appliance, an estimated gas consumption of the gas consuming appliance;
obtaining, from a gas meter installed at the property, gas meter data that indicates measured gas consumption at the property;
comparing the total estimated gas consumption of the plurality of gas consuming appliances to the measured gas consumption at the property; and
in response to determining that a difference between the total estimated gas consumption of the plurality of gas consuming appliances and the measured gas consumption at the property satisfies a threshold difference, performing one or more monitoring system actions.
