SolarEdge Local Sensor


The solaredge_local platform uses the local API available on some SolarEdge Inverters to allow you to get details from your SolarEdge solar power setup and integrate these into your Home Assistant installation.

Only specific models support the local API. The local API is available on inverters that do not have an LCD character screen. You can also check the datasheets if in the section “Additional Features”, sub-section “Inverter Commissioning” is present the following line “With the SetApp mobile application using built-in Wi-Fi access point for local connection”. These inverters also have a part number that ends with a 4. For example: SEXXK-XXXXXBXX4 or SEXXXXH-XXXXXBXX4

You can check if the local API works by finding the IP address of your inverter and visiting it in a browser. If it supports the local API, you’ll see a HTML page with the SolarEdge logo and a “Commissioning” menu.

If your inverter does not support the local API, you can use the cloud based version

Configuration

To use the SolarEdge sensors in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: solaredge_local
    ip_address: IP_ADDRES

Configuration Variables

ip_address

(string)(Required)

The IP Address of your SolarEdge inverter.

name

(string)(Optional)

Let you overwrite the name of the device in the frontend.

Default value:

SolarEdge

Full configuration sample

A full configuration entry would look like the sample below.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: solaredge_local
    name: SolarEdge
    ip_address: 192.168.1.123

In case you would like to convert the values for example to kWh instead of the default Wh, you can use the template platform.

# Example configuration.yaml entry for sensor template platform
sensor:
  - platform: template
    sensors:
      solaredge_energy_this_year_template:
        value_template: "{{ (states('sensor.solaredge_energy_this_year') | float / 1000) | round(2) }}"
        unit_of_measurement: 'KWh'
        icon_template: "mdi:solar-power"
