SMA Smart Connected - How it Works

Activation of SMA Smart Connected

Activation of SMA Smart Connected

During registration of the system in Sunny Portal, you, as the installer, activate SMA Smart Connected and thus start automatic battery inverter monitoring by SMA.

Automatic battery inverter monitoring - SMA Smart Connected

Automatic battery inverter monitoring

SMA automatically checks the battery inverter for anomalies around-the-clock during operation. You and your customers benefit from SMA's many years of experience.

Proactive communication - SMA Smart Connected

Proactive communication

After a fault has been diagnosed and analyzed, SMA informs the installer and PV system operator immediately by email. Everyone is thus optimally prepared for the troubleshooting process ensuring minimum downtimes and reducing outlay and costs. The regular power reports also provide the installer with valuable information about the overall system.

Replacement service - SMA Smart Connected

Replacement service

If a replacement device is necessary, SMA automatically supplies a new battery inverter within one to three days of the fault diagnosis. As the installer, you can contact the PV system operator of your own accord and replace the device immediately.

Performance service - SMA Smart Connected

Performance service

The PV system operator can claim compensation from SMA if the replacement device is not delivered within three days.
SMA Smart Connected is available in AU, AT, BE, CH, DE, ES, FR, IT, LU, NL, UK

Perfectly matched storage solution

In the SMA Energy+ Solution, the Sunny Boy Storage temporarily stores electricity from the PV system in a battery. Combined with the Sunny Home Manager 2.0, energy flows in the home can be managed intelligently and electricity costs further reduced. Solar power can thus be used 24 hours a day.
