  • Question: Turning on or off a pull pump or other appliance based on the home's current solar power generation status. eg if sun is down or I am using more power then solar is generating don't run the pump, run it later when i am producing more then using.
    I presume ZigBee does not have devices to monitor power draw of the house. So that will have to be from someone else, data probably feeding into a Raspbery Pi. Then the Pi has to tell the remote appliance to run or not via a ZigBee product? which product would i use? is there a simpler way?

  • Could you please advise which mobile app used in this very nice video, I have so many options but I like this one you are using.
