  1. Ability to Recieve Text for emergencies

    It is nice to be able to get emails notification. But what I'd like would be to get a text for some critical events such as "batteries low" (aka the generator is going to start soon), and "generator failed to start", so I know I have to lower the load immediately to preserve the batteries and not drain them.

  2. Showing total power from PV array

    I would like to see how much total power is coming in from my solar array. That means Before it's throttled down to charge (and not overcharge) the batteries, for example. I have a rough idea how much is expected in my area (PVWatts calculator) but it would be great to know what the totals of UNUSED solar power from my roof are: would it be worth selling the extra back to the utility? Should I try smelting aluminum or getting a flywheel? (those last two examples are facetious.) Anyway, I'd like to know what the Potential is for my…

  4. Things you could power with your solar panels today!

    A widget in the Dashboard that more graphically illustrates power generation, quantifying it with some commonly known energy consuming device...like a lightbulb! ie. "You could power 100 dryer cycles with the energy you made today..." etc.

  8. Sell SOC instead of Sell Volt

    Option to choose the SOC instead of the Voltage for the Sell Volt. On Lithium batteries setting this value with voltages is difficult because the selection intervals are to big. The ability to select this with the SOC is easier to understand.

  10. Add Markers on the summary chart based on user input text.

    Allow to add markers in the chart, this way unusual events can be tagged on the chart area. A pop-up window can display the text as you do with the battery SOC, etc. This can also be available through the System Tools gear icon under Notes but with the ability to put a date and time so that it appear on the chart as well.

  15. enhance the system status display

    If I am generating (solar) a lot more than using, say 4000w vs 500w, I would think that if I was off-grid with batteries it should say PRODUCING rather than CONSUMING. Since we always have a small load, it is pretty useless to say Consuming 100% of the time.

    I would also propose a needle meter that points up (12 o'clock) at 0 net watts, and moves to the right if storing/charging/selling and to the left if consuming/discharging the batteries (or buying).

  16. Time ETA display of empty battery bank

    I am wondering if the system has a runtime remaining based upon consumption and state of charge / voltage. That would be helpful to give an at a glance look at when you will run out of power in a time based format i.e. time to DOD 50v - 12/3/17 12:34pm. That would be absolutely great. Thanks!
