Is the sun’s energy being used to wash my laundry or is it flowing into the battery-storage system? Home or Business owners who generate their own solar power also want to know what happens to it, and how to manage it. SMA developed the new SMA Energy App precisely for this purpose. It visualises solar power generation and consumption, displays self-consumption and grid-supplied power and, if available, provides information about the battery-storage system’s state of charge. Future electric vehicle drivers who install the upcoming SMA EV Charger can use the SMA Energy App to conveniently plan the charging of their electric vehicles also from their sofas, using as much cost-effective solar energy as possible.
Following on the heels of the SMA 360° app that provides comprehensive support for installers in their daily work, the SMA Energy App is precisely tailored to the needs of end customers with solar systems and is designed to facilitate energy saving. All relevant energy data from the online SMA Sunny Portal is visualised through the intuitive, easy-to-use interface. This includes the solar power generation, consumption from the grid or solar, daily and historical data, cost savings, and the carbon footprint that the household has left behind since it started generating solar power. If you have a battery-storage system, you can also view its state of charge via the app. Future electric vehicle drivers using the upcoming SMA EV Charger will also be able to use the new SMA Energy App to conveniently plan the charging of their vehicles according to their needs.
“With the SMA Energy App, we are making it even easier for our customers to benefit from their SMA Energy System. In the future, all appliances in the household connected to the SMA Sunny Home Manager 2.0 will also be able to be controlled via the app,” explained Benjamin Blaurock, Product Manager of Digital Components at SMA Solar Technology AG. “Being able to view the history of your own energy and cost balance is a practical tool for all app users who want to save even more energy. This reveals hidden energy guzzlers and helps avoid wasting energy in the future.”
“The Australian team are very excited to release the new SMA Energy app for system owners. Our customers will be delighted with the modern SMA ENERGY app which delivers easy monitoring and in the future, intelligent management of the SMA Energy System, all in the palm of your hands.” Said Darren Hoffman, Sales Director Home and Business Solutions at SMA Australia.
