  1. You're also able to extract data in an .xls format using the following link: https://home.solarmanpv.com/plant/infos/exportdata
  2. Hi @Elsa Have you tried following @charliesjc instructions above? If you're still not able to succeed, let me know and I'll try helping you out. I had to repair mine a few weeks back and made some notes, important to note is that your router's DNS needs to point to
  3. Hi, haven't checked at builders on these recently. There's a company called LiteGlo out in Randburg that stocks them, https://www.liteglo.co.za/shop/cbi-astute-smart-controller/
  4. Hi Alex I've experienced that before. Usually requires reconnecting/pairing with WiFi. Hold down the power button and try repairing with the app. I've experienced specifically when router required rebooting. Let me know if that works for you.
  5. This looks good. Thanks @Tinuva Did you still use the Local Tuya integration?
  6. Did you manage to get sorted? I've used the Local Tuya integration, which worked fine until a few weeks back - I have not had time to troubleshoot. The Tuya android app still works and manage the timers and consumption from there.
  7. Hi Rory, it was around the Tuya smart integration to HA if I'm not mistaken. Will PM you.
  8. Hi Ryan, Seems your geyser consumes around 20kWh's per day - which is fairly high for a single geyser. Does your smart geyser not allow you to set schedules? You could recalculate your monthly cost for the geyser if you know your pre-paid rates, its definitely higher than what your app reports. I was using around the same daily power for 1x200l and 1x150l geysers running 24x7. I've installed CBI Astute smart timers and I now average around 10kWh per day. There are also numerous posts on the forum where guys have managed to use traditional timers or sonoff's and relays to achieve the same outcome.
  9. You can reach out to @Leshen, his done a few installs in and around JHB.
  10. Hi Paul, You could always move gate motor, security cameras and intercom to their on CB on the essential load side.
  11. Steve and team are really good to ensure that you get great service, as well as provide assistance with numerous technical queries that you may have. I did experience some delays from one of the power forum store's suppliers where I'm still awaiting a functional can bus converter, but they've tried their best to keep the communication and constant updates to me.
  12. @MongooseMan Thanks for assisting!
  13. Hi Paul, depends on the fan and case that you have? I have one of these https://www.diyelectronics.co.za/store/accessories/2670-raspberry-pi-4-aluminium-case-with-dual-cooling-fans.html, and notice that the one fan does become noisy at times, removing and reconnecting the GPIO solves the issue. Is the noisy fan consistent?
  14. Hey guys, To those of you that have managed to integrate the CBI with home assistant using the Local Tuya method (https://github.com/rospogrigio/localtuya), could you please share you config file with me? Been trying to get it working over the weekend, and have been unsuccessful.
  15. You make a few fair points. Our use cases and lifestyles all differ. For me personally, running a 200l and 150l geyser - which usually consumes around 20kW's per day, I've now been able to reduce this to between 10 and 12kW's per day for both these geysers. The one is scheduled to run an hour and half in the morning, and the second runs for 2 hours in the morning and an hour in the afternoon. I was targeting a 30% saving after installing these, and am very happy with the results of a 40 to 50% saving.
