Separation of SMA Radio-Controlled Sockets and Loads: In the new version, SMA radio-controlled sockets and loads have been clearly separated. You can now assign names to the SMA radio-controlled sockets within your system and to the loads that are connected to them. This means that you can assign a meaningful name to a load, for example a washing machine, and equip this with an additional image. The loads named in this way can therefore be identified more quickly in the Load Overview.
Load Overview:The new Load Overview offers you a quick overview of the loads, their activation and the configured time periods for connection. With one click you can now access the configuration of a load and make changes to the settings, such as the time period for connection. The loads currently configured and also the loads operated in the past - selectable via filter - are displayed in the Load Overview. Cable-connected loads are also supported alongside the loads connected via SMA radio-controlled sockets.
Weekly Plan for Loads:* The previous daily plan for SMA radio-controlled sockets has been extended to a weekly planner. You therefore have the option of distributing various time periods over a week and thus can better tailor the time periods for connection of the SMA radio-controlled sockets to suit your requirements. Furthermore, you can assign loads to your SMA radio-controlled socket more flexibly, so that you can control the energy consumption in your household depending on the season, for example. This means that you can use an SMA radio-controlled socket for the ventilator in summer, whilst in winter you can connect the heater instead.
Extended Load Balance and Control: The Load Balance and Control has been extended and improved. You can now show and hide the balance graphics of individual loads in the diagram as well as combining them together (stacking) in order to achieve efficient utilization of the PV energy. You can also view the energy mix (PV energy, battery energy, purchased electricity etc.).
Extended Consumption Forecast Presentation:* In the Consumption Forecast, the times of loads planned in by Home Manager are now also displayed. As a result you can identify exactly when your connected loads will run. Therefore you can plan you power consumption even better and decide whether, for example, to mow the lawn or charge your electric vehicle late in the afternoon or postpone these to the next day.
* These features only are usable with the next Sunny Home Manager firmware version V. 1.10. The new firmware version will be available in the near future.
