I have a MultiPlus-II 2x120v and MPPT 150/85 that I currently monitor on-site via the SmartShunt 500A/50mV and Victron Digital Multi Control 200/200A.

I was recently able to setup a Verizon Jetpack on our remote property and I'd like to be able to monitor the equipment from home via the Internet. With that said, what equipment would I need to do that?

You need the Cerbo (or the older Color Control GX). Can also be done via Raspberry Pi with the right hardware to make the physical connections to the other components if you're adventurous. Don't forget the cables between the devices (e.g. VE.Direct and VE.Bus).

Setting up a Raspberry Pi is really easy. I have one with a touch screen connected to my Victron inverter, SCC, and battery monitor. The RPi connects to my trailer’s Wi-Fi and I can log into VRM to see the real-time status. I can also control the inverter and update settings remotely.

Of course using Victron’s GX is another option but it is a lot more expensive.
