Ah, solar! I missed that part. I am currently working on the load limiting problem as well. I agree it would be helpful to have remote monitoring capability if you aren't always home. I rarely leave the house so monitoring is less complicated.

Home automation for me has been 30 years of devices that don't communicate across brands and do manage to fail quickly. Now I'm going back to industrial contactors, SSR's, and a PLC. The energy cost for these older devices is less than the replacement cost of consumer products. It helps that I have everything on hand.
