An electrically qualified person can install the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 in a home connection box in just a few minutes. In our case, the SMA Energy Meter was replaced by the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 in less than 15 minutes.
The more self-generated solar energy you use in your own home, the more efficient your PV system becomes. When self-consumption is high, grid feed-in goes down. If you combine a battery-storage system with an electric heating element, you can use as much of your solar power as possible for yourself. Thanks to electric water heating, our colleague Manuel März enjoys hot water essentially at zero cost, which means that his heat pump even gets some time off in the summer month.
The new Sunny Home Manager 2.0 will be available in April 2017. Just like the term Web 2.0, the extension 2.0 does not describe a radically new type of technology or application. Instead, it describes the modified and extended use of the product. Here, you can learn why the Sunny Home Manager now looks like the SMA Energy Meter and what this means for the PV system.
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.
