Solar Hot Water Monitoring Packages

Verify your solar hot water (SHW) system's performance. Make sure your system is operating efficiently. See the results of your investment. Our monitoring hardware and software collects relevant temperatures, flows, irradiance, and pump run times. Our online dashboard shows current and historical system performance, with flexible data comparisons.

Solar Hot Water Projects

Developers and Energy Organizations can use any level of Solar Hot Water Monitoring in a multi-location project. The Intellergy Solar Hot Water Dashboard provides three levels of data access to the online dashboard, and the ability to download data for further analysis:

  1. Admin - the client developer or organization can see all locations and view details about each installation and the data it collects, with access to all data, history, and flexible comparison of different parameters, as well as an interface for configuring the sensors.
  2. Installer - the installer can see just his or her locations, with a compact overview of system performance for each, and access to details of each installation and the data it collects, as well as an interface for configuring the sensors.
  3. Homeowner - the homeowner or tenant sees only their own location, with details of the installation, history, and flexible comparisons of different parameters.
