Solar inverters play a pivotal role in converting the direct current (DC) produced by your solar panels into alternating current (AC) that can be used in your home or business.
To enhance the user experience and allow homeowners to monitor their solar system’s performance, many modern inverters come equipped with WiFi capabilities.
Note: Even if you can’t access the app or if the inverter isn’t connected to WiFi, it doesn’t mean your system isn’t working. Most inverters have a built-in display that provides live data. If you aren’t connected to wifi yet but see numbers or metrics on the display screen of the inverter, it’s a good indication that your system is active and producing energy. So, even without the digital connectivity, you can still have peace of mind knowing your solar system is hard at work powering your home or business.
Connecting your solar inverter to WiFi for the first time empowers you to monitor energy production, consumption, and overall system health directly from your smartphone or computer. This real-time data can be priceless for ensuring you maximise the benefits of your solar investment.

Over time, you may change your WiFi credentials or experience network interruptions – or you may be troubleshooting an issue and get told to reset or reconnect your inverter wi-fi connection. If this occurs, you’ll need to reconnect your inverter to maintain access to key performance metrics.
