    Hi all just had my 4.4kw system installed a couple of weeks now.
    Its a solis hybrid with 2.4kwh battery.
    Anybody else got similar setup?
    Still havent had a clear day to see max power. But well covering my needs right now.

    Pic doesn't show.

    We had a similar system installed recently and are very happy with it.

    Do you have the the wifi dongle on the inverter for monitoring/logging by any chance? I notice there's always power going to the "back up" on ours even though we don't have a back up socket wired off the inverter. Does yours show the same? I assume it's just the power the inverter is using to keep itself going.

    I have the wifi dongle but only shows pv power comming in. Nothing else shows battery level etc

    It should show battery level and that, you might need to change the system type to "storage system" in the settings on the app/webpage.

    Does your dongle have a small antenna at the bottom? I think i might have the old type dongle without antenna that could be my issue?

    Yeah mine definitely has an antenna, maybe that's the difference and the newer one logs more info.

    I guess it's normal, presumably to keep the inverter itself going.
