The most advanced solar monitoring platform for EG4 inverters
Modern, real-time solar monitoring and control via web, Android and iPhone app.
Per second metric accuracy
Real-time metrics makes all the difference and gives true insight into how your system performs. Instant updates are really convenient if your trying different settings to see how it affects your system.
10+ Years of historical data via interactive charts
SolarAssistant puts you in control of your data by storing it on your device instead of a cloud service. You can store 10+ years of data on the default 16GB SD card.
Modern, efficient interface
If you are currently using a platform such as VNC or AnyDesk to access your monitoring software then you are effectively streaming video just to use an application. It just doesn't make sense. We built our entire platform from the ground up with the latest technology.

Remote monitoring and control
Web, Android and iPhone
Remotely monitor and administer your site via web or our mobile app. All functionality is available via web and mobile.
Multi-site access with a single login
Via the SolarAssistant platform you can get a list of all your sites and access them with a single login. A must have for solar installers.
You can invite new users to your sites which will send them a welcome email that prompts them to set a password. Password resets are self-service via email.
Monitoring battery metrics
Via the inverter
SolarAssistant can read battery metrics such as voltage, current and power from your inverter. If your inverter has a communication cable from the inverter to the battery, then SolarAssistant can read additional metrics such as battery state of charge and temperature.
Via a USB cable from the monitoring device to the battery
If the monitoring device is connected directly to the battery BMS it can read many additional metrics such as cell voltage, cycles, state of health, etc. It can also provide metrics for each battery in your battery bank. If your inverter does not have a communication cable from the inverter to the battery BMS, then this is a must have for accurate state of charge and power management.
