Type Quick App

This QuickApp monitors your SolarEdge managed Solar Panels. The QuickApp has (child) devices for Solar Power, todays data, this month data, this year data and Lifetime data. 

The Solar Production values are only requested from the SolarEdge Cloud between sunrise and sunset. The QuickApp also shows the Environmental Benefits in the labels for CO2, SO2, NOX, Trees planted and Lightbulbs and also the SolarEdge Installation details in the labels. The Environmental Benefits are updated once a day after 12:00 hour. 

The settings for Peak Power and Currency are retrieved from the inverter. The rateType interface of Child device Last Day is automatically set to "production" and values from this child devices can be used for the Energy Panel. 

The readings for lastyear and lifetime energy are automatically set to the right Wh unit (Wh, kWh, MWh or GWh). 

See API documentation on https://www.solaredge.com/sites/default/files/se_monitoring_api.pdf

Hi Rob, no plans for the Modbus. I don’t have the Modbus, I only have Cloud access.

Hi, Are you planning to make it without Cloud so with modbus option ? So no limits like API requests ?

We can’t show pictures in this chat. You can look at the fibaro forum: https://forum.fibaro.com/topic/54197-quickapp-solaredge-monitor/ The main device has an option “variables” . There you can fill in the api key and siteID.

I'm a total newbee and try to figure out how to get this working in my Home Center 3. I've uploaded the file but I don't know where I must fill in my apiKey and siteID. Can you give me an example?
