How to connect SolarEdge to Zonnepanelen app

app

#1

Hi,

I’m new to Homey and am installing all apps. I’ve installed the beta version of Zonnepalen app because the original one is no longer compatibable Homey (I understand). I have a SolarEdge system (w/o wifi; on the network and fully functioning with the SolarEdge proprietary app). When installing the device, I have to enter a System ID and API key. However I get an ‘unkown error’ and don’t know that to do now. I’ve used the S/N from the sticker (both with and without dashes) and have had an API created by the supplier. What could be a next step? Thanks,
Wouter

Hi Wouter. I got it to work. You need to get the System ID and API Key from you installer and connect the S/N isn’t needed. The System ID is viewable in the URL on https://monitoring.solaredge.com/ after login. mine is a 5-digit number.

Hi.
Can somebody explain to me how a flow works with tags in this app.
I have installed the beta version of this app. I have already a connection with my solar edge, but now I want to make a flow with it.
I have tags like Energiemeter and Energie but I realy don’t know how to use it. Thx.

Hi Marcel, I made a little flow that sends me the production at 12.30 every day. I created an alarm and within the text I used ‘Energie’, which is the current production in Watt. Is that what you’re looking for?

Hi Wouter. Thx for your reply. I already figured it out how it works with the flows.
This is exactly what I mean. I have already made a flow with it.

Hi Wouter. Can you sent me the example off your flow.
Now, I get to much push notifications above 10 kwh(for example)
I want to get just one push notification above 10 khw.
Thx, Marcel

My flow is related to an alarm (time-based), so this doesn’t happen. I haven’t tried the other one yet.

@ I disable the Flow after reaching the goal and activate it at 1 oclock at night.

Wouter. How do you get the powervalue out of inverter into the flow?
