  2. Grid Fail and Restore Notification

    Include grid in or out notifications. I will like to know when grid-connection fails and when it is restored.

    The controller can be restarted remotely by selecting the Device Map, the Mate3 controller and then scrolling to the bottom of the Status tab and clicking “Reset Gateway”.

    For cases where an auto-restart is desired, the “Auto-Reboot Interval” can be set from the Connectivity page.

  4. Change Dashboard Default

    Ability to create default view of the dashboard. For example, I am totally off-grid and would like the dashboard to default to showing solar, from grid, and to load; not to grid or from grid.

  5. Accurate Data

    I think we can all agree that accurate data is important. So many times I log on and see my system is "consuming" when my PV array is generating 1.8 KW and I am consuming .02 Kw.

    This ticket was opened some time ago. Our Mate3 firmware engineers have done a lot of work in the interim to improve power reporting. Once you’ve upgraded to a recent firmware version, we’d be interested in your feedback on data accuracy.

  6. Option to monitor shunts on dashboard view

    I gather the input monitoring for the solar generated power is read only from the charge controller(s). It would be nice to be able to have an option of taking the reading from the current shunts that the FNDC monitors.

  8. Variety in Data Display Charts

    We have implemented the following status alerts:

    Grid Connected – Load Grid Transfer

    Grid Connected – Load Grid Transfer/Low Battery Voltage

    Grid Dropped – Load Grid Transfer

    Grid Dropped – Load Grid Transfer/High Battery Voltage

    Grid Outage

  11. OpticsRE Alert when System Loses Utility Power

    OpticsRE needs the ability to detect when utility power has been lost and then send an alert via email and/or SMS. This allows net metering users (or UPS mode users) to know when the system is running off battery and take appropriate measures to maximize battery life.

  12. Remember my settings on the graph.

    I think a Cookie to remember settings on the graph would be helpful, for example I may always want to see Three Days Ending, or always want To Grid = Off and To Battery = On

  13. AXS Port support/compatibility with OpticsRE

    AXS Port support/compatibility with OpticsRE.

    Paul Gardner tickets@opticsre.uservoice.com
    12/9/14

    to me
    Please note Optics is currently not compatible with the AXS Port but will be in the near future. I will keep your email on file for any future beta needs we might have. For your reference we are planning to release new firmware for the AXS Port in January 2015.

    Cheers,
    The OPTICSre Team

  14. RECOMMENDATION: When setting the "24-hour reset" feature for OpticsRE

    RECOMMENDATION: When setting the "24-hour reset" feature for OpticsRE, you can choose to "enable" it or "disable" it, but OpticsRE apparently starts the 24-hour clock immediately when that change is made. I, for example, want to have my system reset at Midnight... the only way I can do that is to stay up and enable the function at Midnight. Why not include a box where I can type in the reset time that is independent of when I actually enable the feature?? Easy fix for greater convenience and functionality.

    The controller reset feature was implemented some time back to compensate for issues which the Mate3 controller had with reconnecting to Optics after an outage. The latest Mate3 and Mate3S firmware versions are much improved in this regard. Our goal is to make the reset functionality unnecessary. If you haven’t, please consider upgrading to a newer firmware level as found here: http://outbackpower.com/resources/technical-support/firmware-updates

    We haven’t added event sorting capabilities (events are only particularly relevant when viewed in chronological order with those around them), but we have added both search capabilities and event type filtering to the Event History page.

    While we haven’t added event sorting (events typically make most sense when they’re viewed chronologically adjacent to other events), we have added search and event-type filtering to the Event History page to better narrow down the events to be viewed.

  19. Automate changing date of chart to the current day if left running overnight

    My system has an android tablet associated which displays the Optics dashboard of my system 24/7. The daily chart auto-updates throughout the day, but at midnight it just stops. It can't advance to the next day by itself. Each morning I have to manually click the date control to advance to the next day. It would be great to be able to wake up in the morning and have the graph showing the current day, not the previous day.
    Shalom
    Bill

  20. Offline data log

    Allow MATE to collect offline data and upload it when the internet becomes available again. Maybe allow the mate to read the SD card to fill out the gap between the last available online.
