It can help to achieve the optimal usage of renewable energy and can control the bi-directional flow of electric power, work under auto/manual & time-of-use (TOU) modes and charge/discharge the battery as per homeowners setting.

Good day. Does this inverter/battery combination offer any kind of monitoring via MQTT or even SNMP? Even email notifications failing that. Thanks
Hi Shaun. The B3 has a built-in Ethernet port and can be plugged into your router (or even a Wi-Fi extender if need be) to take advantage of Alpha ESS's free web or app-based monitoring service.

Is the smile B3 a pure sine inverter?
Hi Vernon, yes it is.
|elma on 11/02/2022|
wouls this kit or your kodak 48v kit lend itself to later link to solar panel
Hi Elma, the Alpha B3 does not have built in solar capabilities, whereas the Kodak inverter does.

Can this system be integrated with solar panels, etc. Is it solar ready?
Hi Marvin. No, however you can AC couple a grid-tie inverter to its output should you want to add solar to this unit.

How many item can powered up with this system and for how long before needing a recharge If you want to add on capacity , do they fit into the existing unit
Hi Sagren, it can run a load of 1000W for 3 hours, or a load of 3000w for 1 hour and anything in between.. The number of items depending entirely on how much power they draw.
For example, a light may be 5W but a kettle is usually around 2000W.
