    Renogy Devices and Raspberry Pi - bluetooth/WiFi

    That looks preety sweet, and looks like you do have history there with power generation, max and min, and charge status. Olen script now has the ability to grab data from Renogy batteries. Probably with copy paste, i would imagine that combining both the benefits of the scripts, coud lead to a...

    @scottnichol Just curious how you got the charge contoller to report the state MPPT/BOOST etc? Did you also get the history going? @oedo808 got the history going in the debug logs file.

    There's been an update to the script thanks to a fella named acmagn, the script now properly reconnects every 10 seconds if there's a disconnect and now reads data fron renogy batteries including the built-in Bluetooth one and those running on the BT-2 module. It hasn't been merged with the...

    interesting. How long does it wait between retries? Maybe I didn't wait long enough.

    I havent got there yet, as you say, im not sure how to restart it several times. I suspect it would have to be in script itself (and not a service thing)...the service would just start the script, and it would be up to the script to keep it connect to the BT module...I think...right now, im just...

    this is a connection issue. This happens to me all the time. Sometimes it takes 4 or 5 times to connect. Turn off your DC Home app home bluetooth, confirm you're in good BT range (within 20 feet is good), and just keep trying, stop the script, restart it. It will eventually connect and stay...

    It sounds like your CHIP might be on order of Rasperry Pi Zero....which is ok, if just connects to the BT module and sends the data to a broker on another system. Maybe if you setup you your 3B+ as a broker so you log and analyze the data on your 3b instead? just a thought

    so just curious, how many parameters can you support now? CAn you do history in addition to the orginal script?

    input_X is solar panels charge_X is battery and the third set is load related as for the connection issues, that just there us a poor connections. I find that sometimes I need to start/stop the script 5 times for it connect and send data. After it connects, it might go 3 to 4 weeks before it...

    Yes, I have it running and plotting to Grafana with influxDB. With HA, you'll have to use mosquitto and set you machine up as a broker (receives the data). If you have a seperate broker on another machine, you'll have to actived the broker mqtt in the configuation.yaml of HA and it imports...

    Renogy 1000W Sine Wave Inverter with Power Saving Eco Mode - Problem

    Thanks for letting us know. I know of many others having the same problem. I've heard if that if you place the switch to 50 Hz, it fixes it. Most electronics, at least in North America, support 50 to 60 Hz. Check yours and try out the 50 Hz setting.

    that;s great that you got it to work with a BT-2 module. now it opens things up for the Elite Rovers. If Renogy can release the ModBus maps/codes for other devices, this could be a pandora's box.

    Using InfluxDB (on Ubuntu in Grafana) and Red-NODE (on RPi Zero 2W), here's the dashboard for a true data logging and remote (and locally-based) access system

    are you referring to the settings or when you Rover is in MPPT, float, boost mode?....either way, I have not seen that in the code, or haven't identified it yet....its good point and would be nice to have as another data stream.
