Less Social Media, more about Education

Like previous reviews, I bought the Renogy system because their components are highly rated and Bluetooth allows me to monitor the system from my chair next to the campfire.

But the App is disappointing. Drop the social media features and bulk up the system monitoring capabilities. I really don’t care about “Joe123” in Albuquerque. I want to know what my battery status is in plain English.

Do I need to use less light?
Should I switch the refrigerator to propane?
Am I doing more harm to my battery than good?

These are the important questions, the App user needs to see. So give me the information.

Also the App could be used to educate Users. More and more people have solar installed or are installing solar. We all all not Solar or electrical savvy. Even if a person was, the App should be a aid in helping an owner explain the system to someone who isn’t. I can’t tell you how many fellow campers are intrigued by my Renogy Install, but the App doesn’t help me explain to them, in plain English, how it all works.

You want to grow your market, make the App an system focused and easy to use so Renogy Owners can be an ambassador for the product. Now your talking about sales growth.

Not happy with new App

I am not happy with this new app for several reasons. First, it appears the app requires my phone to have an internet connection. This is a significant problem since the systems I monitor are very remote and do not have internet. Another problem is this app does not work well when you have more than one system to monitor. In the old app I could easily switch between my different systems. In the new app I must add a new device every time I want to switch between systems. Also, could someone please tell me why I need to be connected to a “Community”? I could care less about hearing what someone else has to say or telling anyone about my systems or setup. I need an app to monitor my systems, that’s all, nothing more. And certainly not something like another social app! I am planning to add another system next summer and I will not be buying Renogy products for it if they don’t make major improvements to this new app. Bottom line, if the old app continues to work after December, I will be using it instead of this new piece of crap!

Could be significantly better

It’s a bummer that the solar charge controller (Rover MPPT) gives you a lot of great information on the unit itself and the BT only relays some of it. Makes me want to write my own app and connect the Bluetooth to it. The app has way to many social media features that no one cares about or finds useful in any way.

If you literally just take the info the charge controller gives and display that on the phone via Bluetooth it would be great. Having a Bluetooth unit for every Renogy part is also silly IMO. Hoping for more updates and features in the future.
