All things Sunsynk (Deye, Inge, etc...)

What platform is this on?

P.S. Maybe suggest to Joel to use the provider of that platform as it seems to actually work :unsure:
After being endlessly oversold, then committed and then repeatedly delayed and postponed, was the whole failed region migration project not intended to improve uptime and availability/integrity of it all?

(it's rhetoric, yes. However, one would reasonably hope that there would be a certain level of comfort in the SS team that things will, at worst, not be worse after the migration project, than what it was before...?)
 
Can't even log in online to see what my plant is doing. Starting to get really cheesed off. The ponytail and his IT "call a friend" does not see to be able to cope any longer. Talk about screwing up your brand's reputation.
 
Hi all.... Long time member on MyBB Forums, but I've been dormant for very long.

I also have a Sunsynk inverter that I monitor almost the whole day everyday (it's a pinned tab on Firefox on my work PC, with auto-refresh every 10min).

What's a permanent solution to this problem? I've read about things like Solar Assistant, Home Assistant, etc... very briefly... but not sure if it will work for me, or how it works.

Can someone please recommend, or point me in the right direction. Even willing to pay someone to do the initial setup. I'm an IT person, so technically very competent. My understanding of inverters and solar, electricity, power, batteries, etc is pretty good as well, though I'm no electrical engineer. I'm a Computer Science Honours graduate, if that helps. I just don't have the time to research, tinker, test, etc, which is why I'd be willing to pay someone to set it up, and then I look after it myself.

I have my own network cabinet at home, which is its own lithium backup (for up to 6 hours), which is independent of the my inverter and 20kWH battery pack. My network hasn't been down for over a year. I even have automatic failover for internet, from fibre to LTE. Have my own media server to run Plex, Radarr, Sonarr, qBittorrent, etc, which also hasn't been offline, unless I manuallly reboot it, and switch off to do maintenance / upgrades / play around with my network.

I'd say my own network and internet access has been 10 x more reliable than this Sunsynk connect rubbish. So I want to roll my own....

Please point me in the right direction....

Solar Assistant is software you can buy here. If you have a spare Pi3 / 4 you can just buy the software and relevant cables. Install the software on a microSD then plug it in and you can connect to it locally (or remotely). It gives a wide range of information and has almost instantaneous data updates. If you don't have a spare Pi you can buy one from that same site as well. I have been running it for almost 3 years and haven't had more than 5mins of SA downtime in that period. The software is also being continually improved and is for all intents and purposes - very stable

Thanks for the reply buddy. You have a PM.

I think @Saajid might have been asking, if there are any installers available who would come and install Solar Asssistant for you?

Would one need to ask any solar installers to come do the installation?

Yeah, that too.... Assuming Solar Assistant is the correct solution. I do have some smart home devices that I want to integrate in a broader Smart Home Solution. Looking at Home Assistant for this. Currently just using eWelink app with about 10 x SonOff smart light switches, 3 x SonOff inching switches (for garage doors + sliding gate motors), smart circuit breaker for Geyser control... All controlled via eWeLink...

Will Solar Assistant integrate with Home Assistant? And if so, how? And do they play nicely with each other?

Home Assistant is free - run a VM on your server and install, install integration, and then you can have a custom screen you can access anywhere through your server, or through paid HA subscription. This is what I do, but I have the solarman dongle which seems to be more robust than Sunsynk? Plus having it in HA means every value is saved can so it can be used as triggers for all sorts of automations.....
