DIY option for monitoring solar off grid system

• David Poz -

Schneider doesn't currently have a plug and play monitor for the off grid solar equipment. But, with help from Schneider, I put together a DIY option. This uses a Samsung tablet as the monitor, and connects to the insight home.

The most difficult part of this project was setting up the static IP address. I needed to make the Insight home and the Samsung tablet talk to each other. I'm not good with computers, so making this happen was a long and difficult process.

If you are not good with computers already, you might not want to try this.
