All good suggestions. But a few complexities:
- what options / switches are needed to handle non parallel panels (3-4 folks have asked) ? Here I’m assuming each panel would retain it’s own solar option, so all panels could still be backfed solar on a per panel basis.
- how would you associate smartplugs and Hue with specific panels. Today the Sense monitor sends out a broadcast to all Hues/smartplugs on the same network, and they all respond back with info. With multiple monitors on the same network, there needs to be a way to associate each with a specific panel. Or put each Sense monitor and associated plugs on their own subnet (cumbersome)
- since Sense sends a lot of up data, there might also be a need to predictably interlace uploads to avoid too much upstream congestion.
