homebridge-solaredge-inverter

A SolarEdge Inverter plugin for Homebridge. This creates a a set of Light Sensors in homekit, where the LUX reading is actually the power generation in KiloWatts. There is also an option to display battery level if applicable.

This code is heavily based on the work of Stog's homebridge-fronius-inverter accessory.
