homebridge-solaredge-kiosk

A SolarEdge Inverter plugin for Homebridge. This plugin is intended to be used with the SolarEdge kiosk page, if for some reason you don't have a proper API key to access their regular API.

This creates a Light Sensor in HomeKit, where the Lux reading is actually the current power generation in Watts.

This is a fork of ecoen66's homebridge-solaredge-inverter plugin. This fork uses the endpoint that powers the SolarEdge kiosk page. That plugin is heavily based on the work of Stog's homebridge-fronius-inverter accessory, and so is this.

Installation

Run these commands:

% sudo npm install -g homebridge
% sudo npm install -g homebridge-solaredge-kiosk

NB: If you install homebridge like this:

sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm homebridge

Then all subsequent installations must be like this:

sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm homebridge-solaredge-kiosk
