Apologies for the price increase but Raspberry PIs are becoming scarce and expensive.
What is SolarAssistant?
SolarAssistant is software used to monitor and control your solar system. It is designed to run on a Raspberry Pi that is plugged into the solar inverter and optionally a battery BMS. The idea is that you leave the PI running permanently. The application can be accessed from a web browser or the Android/iPhone app via local network or the internet.
Live Data updates every second.
Package includes :
*9 to 60V DC to 5V DC Power supply for your PI (connects directly to the Inverter battery)
*Raspberry PI with 32GB Pre Loaded and Registered Software (up to 10 years Data)
*Use the USB Cable that is supplied with your Inverter to link the Pi with your Inverter (We have other cables available for MPP Solar and Deye if you need to connect via RS232 port – This is not included – )
*One Solar Assistant PI can connect all your parallel connected inverters! Not like Watch-power / Growatt Etc
Bluetooth (No internet connection?, no problem)
Local Wifi Access Point (it has its own) – no internet required
Or link it up to the internet, and view your device from the Internet
Complete security – Nothing is stored on a Cloud Server – NADA, its all stored and remotely accessed right from the internet to YOUR Data Logger, these days your data is sold – not with Solar Assistant!
Viewable on Any Computer / Android / iPhone etc
Manuals and Instructions:
Can also connect directly to your EG4 Battery BMS and many others with RS485 communications

I would love to have given this a better review, because I love the capabilities this provides, however I bought this unit specifically because it has the HDMI port and I need to be able to connect HDMI directly. Sadly, from day 1 the HDMI port has displayed the boot up of the PI, but the solar assistant dashboard will open and then remains frozen, and mouse clicks do nothing. I emailed support about this on Feb 1st and Feb 3rd and both times my request for help was ignored. I know they got my email because a separate request to them about firmware was answered and this issue was raised the 1st time in that same firmware email. I love the tool, it’d get 5 stars if it weren’t for the fact that it’s advertised to support local HDMI and that doesn’t work….
