Switch and Manage
Once you know where energy comes and goes in your home, you can let Sunny Home Manager do what it is designed to do… manage energy.
Having access to all key household appliances, the optional battery-storage system and the PV generation unit, the Sunny Home Manager always knows how much energy is available and where it is needed. Aided by a weather forecast from Internet data and individual adaptation to local conditions, it is able to accurately predict solar irradiation for a few hours into the future and supply the connected household appliances with low cost PV energy. Thanks to the Sunny Home Manager’s self-learning function, appliances such as the heat pump run exactly when there is sufficient sunlight available, making it possible to cover electric power demand by solar production.
The online Sunny Portal shows the status of the PV system and displays energy availability and consumption forecasts. It indicates the scheduled operating periods of the household appliances that Sunny Home Manager factors into its energy planning. So you know that the washing machine will be finished at 4 p.m. and that the laundry will have been washed almost entirely using solar power. It also gives tips on how you could use additional excess PV energy.
The diagrams in the Sunny Portal display the power consumption for connected household appliances together so that you can see exactly when Sunny Home Manager started the dishwasher or how much solar power the heat pump used over the past month.
