38 M A R C H / A P R I L 2 0 1 8 Tigo Energy SMART app Tigo's latest creation is the SMART app, an asset management and commissioning solution that lets you design, lay out, configure, com- mission and monitor your PV system all from your mobile device. This app enables you to interface directly with Tigo's Cloud Connect Advanced (CCA) software via an automatic WiFi Bluetooth connec- tion. Select from more than 2,000 inverter types or add your own on the SMART App. For those installing a lot of Tigo systems already, you can also scan barcodes from a mobile device, troubleshoot system issues on-site and more. What's cool about it? Tigo's module-level online monitoring app provides system owners greater visibility into module-level performance. System analytics track production, send alerts and proactively suggest maintenance actions to keep systems operating at maximum efficiency. For increased safety, Tigo's SMART website can remotely power off each module indi- vidually, eliminating high voltage for maintenance or safety purposes. The newest updates to the 3.0 version in late January 2018 include: New languages: English, French, German, Chinese (Simplified), Italian, Korean and Spanish. Saved searches: Terms and last position are saved when searched in System List. Saved images: A system's image are saved and reused once downloaded. New metrics: Year-to-date (YTD) and Lifetime production data metrics are available. WiFi connection screen: UX is more applicable to that of iOS and Android. Solar-Log WEB Enerest The Solar-Log WEB Enerest App is a new way to view your solar plant data. Powered by the Solar-Log WEB Enerest monitoring portal, this app provides a way to stay up to date on solar PV plant performance on the go, saving both time and money for solar installers and plant owners. What's cool about it? The new premium features and comprehensive, interactive graphics create a convenient monitoring tool to keep plant operators fully informed about the status of their solar PV plants. A single solar plant or several plants can be presented on a dashboard with customized views. The Solar-Log WEB Enerest App can also show current and historical plant data, as well as data from connected components like consumption meters, weather sensors, heat pumps and heating rods. Actual yield can be compared to expected power production according to integrated weather data. This information allows the O&M provider to ensure maximized solar power production and protect the solar PV asset. Swipe through energy production with daily, monthly, yearly and even lifetime graphs. Visualize home or building energy usage and energy flow to better understand how the energy is being used. Access any plant in your fleet with just one tap.
