View on GitHub

Eversolar Monitor is an application to capture data and create statistics from Eversolar/zeversolar solar PV inverters. The application runs on a small Linux server, such as a Raspberry Pi, directly connected via an RS485 interface to the inverter. This plugin extends the Indigo Domotics Indigo Mac home automation application to read data from the Eversolar Monitor application & make it available as Indigo device states.
