    ... my inverter is three phase, and the app only displays one output phase info. Am I doing something wrong? Update - the developer got back to me real quick on what I needed to do. All good now, and an excellent response. 5 stars.

    It works (like you'd expect the SMA app to.) Thanks. I'll play with it a bit more, but I'm already considering the paid version.

    Having spent the last 3 months in failed attempts to get sunny explorer or sunny portal to provide any data, this app was up and running within a minute. Most unimpressed with SMA support. Will no doubt upgrade to Oxley Pro.

    Great love it, although if it would tell you how much was going back to grid ( if possible) I'd pay for pro.
