No, it’s not the start of a joke. And the image doesn’t show Sunny Home Manager and a dishwasher. Rather, the topic is a common language for connecting household appliances and applications for the sake of energy efficiency. This is an important goal of the EEBus Initiative.
Tiffany Zhan, Service Engineer from SMA Australia, demonstrates the simple steps to setup zero export with the Sunny Home Manager. In this Tech Tip video, Tiffany shows the connection of the devices, registering the system on Sunny Portal, setting up export control and the fallback setting for the inverter.
The EEBus initiative has set itself the task of establishing a communication standard for networking different devices. Sven Schreiber, who is responsible for the Residential business unit at SMA, is a new member of the initiative’s board of directors. So of course we have taken this opportunity to talk to Sven about the prospects and possibilities involved.

With the Sunny Home Manager Release 1.12 , you will be able to integrate the internationally deployable Plugwise radio-controlled sockets into SMA’s range of systems. We estimate that by October 18 all 25,000 Sunny Home Managers will be up-to-date. In this post, we’ve put together all the information you’ll need for the integration.
The Sunny Home Manager release 1.12 rollout starts today, and with this, we are making it possible to integrate the internationally deployable Plugwise radio-controlled sockets into the SMA world. To this end we have made a video for you, showing you in simple steps how to connect the SMA Appliance Control Set – the new Plugwise radio-controlled sockets – to the Sunny Home Manager.
In a few of the comments we made, we announced that the new Sunny Home Manager Release 1.12 would be available in August/September. Unfortunately, the project has been delayed, and we now expect it to be completed in early October. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
The Sunny Boy Smart Energy combines a PV inverter and a lithium-ion battery and is the heart of the SMA Integrated Storage System solution for simple, intelligent energy management. In an interview, Product Manager Thomas Thierschmidt describes to me this innovative combination solution, its use and benefits—and some of the challenges the engineers had to overcome with this project.
