Solar Monitoring Integration
Solar Integration is here! If you use a solar provider and want to monitor solar panel energy production and *consumption via the Alarm.com mobile app, now you can! Praise the sun!
Through the Alarm.com mobile app, you can check the day’s current and total production from the home screen.
Additionally, via the Solar screen you can track data for the day, week, last 30 days, and the last 12 months. With this information you can view estimated savings, allowing you to make more informed decisions about home energy use.
*Note: While everyone can view solar production data, only some will have the necessary hardware installed by their solar provider to be able to view energy consumption data in this section as well. Interested customers must contact their solar service provider for more information.
Solar Integration is currently compatible with:
- Professionally installed SolarEdge inverters
- Professionally installed Enphase inverters
