Monitoring on IOS device
« on: August 11, 2019, 06:07:19 PM »
I would love to be able to monitor our charge controller on my iphone however the ios app is not available in NZ does anyone have a workaround to get the app or know of a third party app that would work?

I can monitor it on my pc no problems at all but my computer isnt always on and i want to be able to check the status more quickly.

What about using My Midnite and checking into that with the phone ?
Otherwise some people are working on using Node Red on Raspberry Pi which is less resources than having computer on all the time.
Look in opensource section of forums.

You can load the mymidnite page on an iOS or iPadOS device, however it's a bit problematic.  It's very hard to select a particular point on the graph to see the stats for that point and just about impossible to adjust the timeline bars to be able to expand the graph large enough to tap on the point you want to see.

Lately mymidnite is showing "unknown(18)" for the status on my classic.

I just installed the local app on my MacBookPro and it looks pretty good, except the every 30 reset - the gauges go away and it says "Connection was closed" I have to click "OK", it then puts me back to the initial screen with the list of classics and there every 30 seconds I see "retrying".

Anyone else run in to this or have ideas on how to make it stable?

The local status app does the same sort of thing on my windows computer  with connection closed , or the certificate isn't okay or something. I just put up with it and close the error messages  and then it works again.

Yeah the Network connections got better in the later firmware but never totally got corrected.
