# Fronius Binding

This binding uses the Fronius Solar API V1 (opens new window) to obtain data from Fronius devices.

It supports Fronius inverters and Fronius Smart Meter. Supports:

  • Fronius Symo
  • Fronius Symo Gen24
  • Fronius Smart Meter 63A
  • Fronius Smart Meter TS 65A-3
  • Fronius Ohmpilot

# Supported Things

Thing Type Description
bridge The Bridge
powerinverter Fronius Galvo, Symo and other Fronius inverters in combination with the Fronius Datamanager 1.0 / 2.0 or Fronius Datalogger. You can add multiple inverters that depend on the same datalogger with different device ids. (Default 1)
meter Fronius Smart Meter. You can add multiple smart meters with different device ids. (The default id = 0)
ohmpilot Fronius Ohmpilot. (The default id = 0)

# Discovery

There is no discovery implemented. You have to create your things manually and specify the hostname or IP address of the Datalogger and the device id.

# Binding Configuration

The binding has no configuration options, all configuration is done at bridge, powerinverter, meter or ohmpilot level.
