If you have had a Solis inverter installed – either a hybrid solar inverter or an AC battery inverter – you will likely have found that you have to make most setting changes through the screen of the inverter. This is because the online interface for the inverter generally only shows data for the system and doesn’t directly allow key settings to be changed.
However, it is possible to change this, and have more settings made available for you to change over the Internet. The process to make these settings visible is essentially the same whether you use the Solis Cloud interface on your computer, or the Solis App on your smartphone – but the screens look slightly different.
Solis Cloud Interface
This is the process if using Solis Cloud (soliscloud.com). On your account page select the Device tab:
Solis Cloud – Device Tab (Image: Solis)
Then select your particular inverter by clicking on the serial number link (there is usually just one):
Solis Cloud – Select Inverter (Image: Solis)
Then press the Inverter Control button top right (if this isn’t available then a request will need to be made to Solis Support to enable it):
At this point you will generally need to accept a disclaimer and/or re-input your password to complete the process.
Solis Cloud App
On the app select the Device tab, then your Inverter:
Solis App – Device Tab (Image: Solis)
Then click the triple dot (…) menu:
Solis App – Menu (Image: Solis)
Then select the Control Inverter menu item:
Solis App – Control Inverter (Image: Solis)
Once complete, this process will make the following Inverter Control options available to you (shown on the App):
