I’ve managed to reconnect with my inverter via the oxley solar app. Want to setup an auto monitoring system with daily uploads to
pvoutput.org or similar.
suggestions welcome. I code a lot, mostly in python, found some git repos but not working for me ATM.
Hello, I wrote the SMA/Sunnyboy import routines for the OpenEnergyMonitor project - they are installed by default and configured through the emonHUB software - you will need a bluetooth adapter to talk to the inverter(s).
Similar code is also found in the Oxley Solar App who appears to have ripped my code off
Is there a git repo I should be referring to?
I found this.
On phone atm. Will look at the code soon.
A heads-up on this one. May or may not apply to the OP’s question.
At the end of October 2015, we will be discontinuing some of our communication solutions such as the Sunny WebBox....

I was referring to my code inside emonhub…
I’ve updated my SMA inverter monitoring code to work with the latest versions of emonCMS.
It runs on the PI and posts values into emonCMS over HTTP/HTTPS every few seconds. All that is needed is a USB bluetooth adapter on the PI - I’ve not tested the PI3 with built in bluetooth however I believe OEM disables this on the build.
Please reply to this thread if you are interested in such an interface, and I’ll have a go at integrating it into the emonCMS web interface to make setup easy.
Paul B (
@pb66 ) has written an explanation of what happens with emonCMS & Bluetooth only yesterday: Multiple problems w. EmonTx and RFM69Pi - #24 by pb66
Thanks for that link
@Robert.Wall I’m still stuck on PI2 so don’t have the bluetooth problem - I’m using a USB external bluetooth adapter - class 1 so it has a longer 100m range.
yes, the bluetooth integration on a PI3 sounds the easiest way to achieve my goal.
I’ve been dabbling with Arduino ESP32’s and various sensors, have avoided changing stacks to the raspberri pi world.
I wasn’t expecting a lot of help since the SMA inverter I have is getting ‘old’ now and I can’t imagine a large number of owners are using the openergymonitor.
