  3. Print settings capability

    OPTICSRE should have the option to print out all settings for all devices, or import/export XML or both. Implementation suggestion: The print feature could use the XML and transform it via XSLT or similar technique if both features will be implemented.

  6. Show Outside Temperature on Dashboard Graph

    On the bar chart in the Dashboard, add the option to have a line graph on the right hand side that shows the outside temperature (instead of the battery temperature). This would be extremely helpful since my solar output and load usage is largely dependent upon the outside weather (due to A/C or heat).

  8. 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).

  10. 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…

  12. Customized Defaults Profile slot with example Battery Module wizard

    Customized defaults profile that can be enabled (use customized defaults) / disabled (Outback firmware defaults). Example use for this is battery configuration wizard for supported battery modules that can populate a customized default settings profile. Enter battery chemistry and listed battery module and quantity of each (mixing battery module types being supported by at least SimpliPhi) in a list, next your strategies i.e. temperature range and 80% DoD / 90% DoD / 100% DoD, and a confirmation page which shows the new settings and asks for clarification on settings that are different between modules listed (like Ah) or existing customized…

  13. OpticsRe email notifications need a detailed hashtag in the subject

    Notifications all have the same subject ("Subscribed Event Notification") The details (AGS start, Gateway Offline, etc) are buried in the body of the email.

    Simply putting a hashtag in the subject would be better for both human eyes glancing at an inbox, and IFTTT integration.
    (IFTTT can trigger different actions based on subject line hash-tags)

    e.g. Notification Subjects should look like:
    "Subscribed Event Notification #GatewayOffline"
    or
    "Subscribed Event Notification #BatterySOCLow #AGSStarted"

    Hello Hector -

    We recently added a “Grid Outage” notification via e-mail. Click the System Tools icon (gear), select notifications, scroll down to the Status section. I think that that’s what you’re after.

  19. Nickel iron batteries

    My system is not grid tied and always tells me I'm consuming
    Is there a way to switch it so it actually tells me when I'm consuming
    Also my battery soc meter has never worked with these nickel iron batteries
    I can tell if the batteries are charged based on the voltage
    Help

  20. inverter ACoutput voltage vs time.

    would like to see inverter output voltage over time on a graph to look for inverter outages due to low battery voltage. I assume that data will still log even if the inverter shuts off due to low voltage.
