Solar Charge Controller - Anything which works with ST?


(Kraeg) #1

So this month I’m going to have a massive shed installed in the garden and I’m going to stick a load of solar panels on its roof and use it to run all my garden lights etc (when I get them).

I’m doing the solar install myself, so buying it in parts and thought I would ask anyone if they have a charge controller working into SmartThings in the UK? Maybe something to tell you what you are generating? Battery Level etc?

I know a few people are monitoring with the clamps, but surely there are some good wifi controllers or something?

If you’re going to go to mains voltage, most inverters have a wi-fi connection, which reports back to a webpage so you can monitor what’s happening. Maybe something via IFTTT perhaps.
