Instructional video: Upgrade CCGX firmware to v2.00

This excellent instructional video gives clear, straightforward instructions to upgrade to the recently released Color Control GX firmware v2.00 – an upgrade packed with new features and improvements.

Unlike previous updates, v2.00 cannot be installed from the internet. Instead it needs a one time manual upgrade. After this, future updates can be installed automatically via the internet once again.

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.

CCGX v2.00: ESS and many more improvements

Good evening! After lots of hours designing, programming, testing by many people involved, I can now announce CCGX v2.00: an upgrade packed with new features and improvements. There are two highlights:

First of all the user interface has been improved: the overview better adopts to the installed system. And behind each entry in the device list, you can now see the main parameters.

Secondly, v2.00 marks the release of ESS. Short for Energy Storage System, it is the result of all experiences learned from the Hubs. We have combined all options in one, simplifying setup and configuration. Also, ESS has several new features, and it is much easier to understand how it works and why it is doing what it is doing. Most of the Hub-1 and Hub-2 policies are now deprecated for new installs, as is the Hub-4 Assistant. For exact details see the Comparison chapter in the ESS manual.
