New VRM Portal

Good morning!

Faster, better graphs and better navigation. And a fresh set of colours. For all of us that are familiar with the old site, this new one might take a bit of getting used to. It did for me at least (smile). But, I promise you: it’s worth it.

For me, the new speed, and also the integrated graph on the dashboard is what I like most. The screenshot above shows that graph. The red bars show the consumption, the yellow bars show the solar yield. With one bar per hour now, which is much easier to interpret than the two-hour bars we had in the previous version. Also, overlaid on the same graph, you can see the state of charge in blue.

Lets go through a few screenshots, showing the new features and changes:

More details on the main graph

Hovering the mouse over a point in the graphs shows all the details of that hour. Including the range of the SOC for that hour. This is also visible in the graph and is shown by the light blue shade.

Notes & photos

New, it is now possible to add notes to every installation. Useful to keep track of installation dates and other dates, as I have done here for my own install:

Photos can be added too, just as you can with the VRM App.

New: system battery graphs on the advanced tab

In a typical system, there are many devices measuring similar data. For example battery voltage is measured by almost every device in a system. The Color Control selects the best measurements, and shows them on its Overview. Now you can see those same graphs on the Advanced tab:

I recommend to use these graphs and add them to the top of your advanced tab.

Details & conclusion

Don’t forget to update to the new Android and iOS VRM app versions, which are needed to make the login work. There are no other changes to the app.

That’s it, enjoy! You are welcome to leave any questions and suggestions in the comments below.
