The control center for intelligent energy management

Understand your energy generation and consumption

  • Do you know how much energy is required to wash a load of laundry?

  • Do you know that your beloved refrigerator actually uses three times more energy than an A++ refrigerator?

  • Are you aware that on a sunny day, your PV system produces more energy than you actually can consume?

Being connected to all major loads, the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 can tell you and allows you to adjust your consumption habits. This is the first step in reducing your energy bill and being more ecologically conscious by actually using energy when the sun provides it.

 

What the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 has to offer

  • Clear visualization of key energy flows in the household

  • Energy balance diagrams which show PV generation, charging/discharging of the storage battery

  • Energy mix (PV power, battery, utility grid) as used by individual household appliances and e-mobility

  • Energy consumption history charts with various view selections

  • Basic system status monitoring to confirm correct system performance

Energy balance

The analysis page shows the energy balance for a specified time period and provides analyses for generation, consumption, self-consumption and battery usage.

Energy management with the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 automatically reduces your energy bill

Once you know where energy comes and goes in your home, you can let the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 do what it is designed to do - manage energy.

Connected to all key household appliances, the optional battery-storage system, an electric vehicle and the PV system, the Sunny Home Manager always knows how much energy is available and where it is needed. Aided by a weather forecast from Internet data and individual adaptation to local conditions, it is able to accurately predict solar irradiation for a few hours into the future and supply the connected household appliances with low cost PV energy. Thanks to the self-learning function of the Sunny Home Manager 2.0, appliances, such as the heat pump, run exactly when there is sufficient sunlight available, making it possible to cover electric power demand by solar production.

With the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 you can have your very own solar charging station right on your doorstep

E-mobility is truly sustainable only when the charging current comes from renewable energy sources – ideally from the PV system on your own roof. The Sunny Home Manager 2.0 uses regional meteorological data to create a generation forecast, which it compares against your own consumption behavior. It then automatically controls the charging processes so that your solar power is fed into the battery of your vehicle, not the utility grid. This allows you to optimize your self-consumption and save on the cost of grid-supplied power.

The online Sunny Portal shows the status of the PV system and displays energy availability and consumption forecasts. It indicates the scheduled operating periods of the household appliances or the electric vehicle that the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 factors into its energy planning. So you know that the washing machine will be finished at 4:00 p.m. and that the laundry will have been washed almost entirely using solar power. It also gives tips on how you could use additional excess solar energy.

The diagrams in the Sunny Portal display the connected household appliances together with their power consumption and operating data so that you can see exactly when the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 started the dishwasher, for example, how much solar power the heat pump has run on over the past month, or how much power has been used to charge the electric vehicle.

The load balance provides an overview of the operating time, duration and consumption level of the devices automatically controlled by the energy management system as well as the energy mix they use.

The ideal partner for professional monitoring

Sunny Portal Professional Package for more system details and better performance

The combination of the Sunny Portal Professional Package and Sunny Home Manager 2.0 is ideally suited for the professional monitoring of systems in the 5 kWp and 50 kWp power range. Users can also read the inverter’s most relevant DC and AC measured values and pull up information about power and yield. With the Sunny Portal Professional Package, system information is displayed at 5-minute resolution, therefore offering even greater detail. PV system operators can analyze their daily energy use even more accurately using the detailed energy balance data and can learn about their consumption patterns.

Saving energy intelligently

Smart appliances

Managing household appliances

Particular energy savings can be made by allowing the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 to schedule distribution of solar power among the household appliances. The biggest savings can be made when the system takes control of the largest electrical appliances in the home. SMA offers a number of solutions that allow the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 to access appliances:


Switch appliances on and off

  • The Sunny Home Manager 2.0 is compatible with select WLAN radio-controlled sockets from the online shop (see Accessories  →).

  • These radio-controlled sockets switch appliances on and off using control signals from the Sunny Home Manager 2.0. The Sunny Home Manager 2.0 measures power consumption levels and records exactly how much power the device has used and for how long.

  • A variety of appliances can be controlled via the energy management system, including washing machines, dishwashers, dryers, immersion heaters, pumps and many more.

  • Radio-controlled sockets are available in various country-specific versions.

Smart appliances with direct data connection

The household of the future is completely interconnected. SMA together with its collaboration partners already enables the Sunny Home Managers 2.0 to connect to major household appliance, which can automatically exchange information for energy management:

Simply install via plug and play - and the intelligent heat pump will automatically coordinate with the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 to find the best time to heat the household with solar energy.


Collaboration partner in the SMA Energy System

  • Stiebel Eltron heat pumps
    for compatibility list see “SMA Smart Home” planning guidelines.

  • MENNEKES AMTRON® wall charging stations (Premium/Xtra models)

  • Home appliances with the EEBUS communication standard (e.g., Bosch-Siemens home appliances)


More and more controllable devices will be added with the EEBUS communication standard for energy efficiency. Each manufacturer will supply detailed information on compatible appliances and setup.

Here’s the link to the overview of compatible electrical and thermal loads

Storing energy intelligently

Store energy when it’s the most worthwhile

The active power limitation policy in Germany forces solar systems with battery storage to curtail solar inverter power output when more than 50 percent of the installed PV power (kWp) would be fed into the utility grid.

With its PV yield forecast and measurement of household consumption, the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 knows precisely when it needs to limit grid feed-in, for example at midday. After all, even though on sunny days as much as 100 percent PV power may be available, if there is no one at home to use this energy, everything over 50 percent has to be discarded.

To be able to use valuable PV power, it is best to store the otherwise discarded energy in a battery. You can use this practically free energy in the evenings to operate television or prepare a meal.

For such purposes, the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 always ensures that there is enough capacity left in the battery. Instead of charging the battery with excess PV power first thing in the morning, the Sunny Home Manager 2. controls the battery inverter to make sure that as much PV energy as possible produced during the midday peak—and destined for curtailment—can be stored in the battery. Maximizing use of low cost PV power helps reduce energy costs.

Radio-controlled sockets

Can Edimax Smart Plugs be used together with the Sunny Home Manager (HM-20), even without an Internet connection (offline)?

An Internet connection to the Edimax-Cloud is required during commissioning of the socket on the SHM2. After that, the Sunny Home Manager (HM-20) would only need an Internet connection if the user wants to switch on the Edimax sockets via the Sunny Portal or activate >automatic< operating mode. Remember that the operating mode is always deactivated again by the Sunny Home Manager after the start-up. Re-activation is required every time it is used again, e.g., to switch on the washing machine. For this reason, SMA recommends always operating the Sunny Home Manager with an existing Internet connection.


Why can't the Sunny Home Manager access the AVM radio-controlled sockets any more?

From the version FRITZ!OS 7.25 and the change in the system security of the AVM Fritz!Box, it is no longer possible to log in with a password only.

A virtual user is automatically created in the FRITZ!Box with the name "fritzxxxx" (x = number between 0 and 9). This means that the connection data that allows the Sunny Home Manager to switch radio-controlled sockets on the Fritz!Box needs to be adapted accordingly in the Sunny Portal.

Therefore, SMA recommends selecting "FRITZ!Box-Benutzer und -Kennwort" (FRITZ!Box user and password) when logging into the home network and has defined this option as the default. The setting "FRITZ!Box-Kennwort" (FRITZ!Box password) can now only be used for older systems.


E-mobility: charging stations for electric vehicles

Is the previous version – Sunny Home Manager (Bluetooth) – also compatible with SMA EV Charger?

In principle, SMA EV Charger can also be operated in combination with the Sunny Home Manager BT, but with some restrictions: For example, SMA EV Charger does not appear in the device overview in the Sunny Portal; the control steps are much bigger; no events are transported to the system logbook; SMA Smart Connected is not available; visualization and control via the SMA Energy app are not possible. Forecast-based charging then has to be configured indirectly using the parameter settings on the device’s user interface. If you want to make full use of the intelligent charging options, you should thus consider using the Sunny Home Manager 2.0.


Forecast-based battery charging

If I switch off forecast-based charging, does the Sunny Home Manager have to learn the consumption forecast for approx. 14 days, just like during initial installation? Or does the Sunny Home Manager continue using what it has already learned once before?

When the “Forecast-based charging” function is deactivated, only the planning for charging and discharging the battery is initially deactivated. The other plans and forecasts continue running regardless of this.


Why is the optional appliance charged despite the "battery before optional" setting?

In the Sunny Home Manager, there are three planners that are processed consecutively (mandatory planner / optional planner / battery planner).

With the "battery before optional" function, the order is changed to: mandatory planner / battery planner / optional planner.

Notice: If the setting is changed when, for example, an optional appliance has already been started, this will NOT be stopped but will continue to be used for the time being. This may result in the optional appliance being used before the set battery.


Why do I have problems with my zero export system after updating to version 2.6.6.R of the Sunny Home Manager?

To use the battery management, the "External setpoint" option must be selected under "Operating mode for active power setpoint" in the battery inverter.

If the "Operating mode for active power setpoint" parameter is set to "Off," the SHM cannot communicate with the battery inverter management and the battery may not be charged correctly.


Compatible devices - In general

Which devices can be used as appliances with the Sunny Home Manager?

To find out which devices are compatible, refer to the technical information on the SMA SMART HOME compatibility list for electrical appliances in the download area.


Compatible home appliances

When will new washing machines, dryers or dishwashers from the manufacturer Bosch Siemens Haushaltsgeräte (BSH) be supported via EEBUS with the Sunny Home Manager 2.0?

In 2021, BSH/Home Connect launched a new generation connectivity module that no longer supports the EEBUS energy management function. It is not possible to use this generation of devices without an EEBUS interface integrated in the Bosch Siemens Haushaltsgeräte (BSH).

Space and water heating heat pumps / Heating rods / Universal heating solutions

When you integrate your heating, you don't just store the electricity but convert it to hot water. You can then use it to run your heating or shower. This will help you consume more self-generated solar power and less oil or gas. Oil and gas cost much more to purchase than you can receive for selling your electricity. You can therefore significantly cut the cost of running your heating, consume less oil or gas and, in turn, reduce your environmental impact.

To find out which appliances are compatible for space and water heating, refer to the technical information in the SMA SMART HOME compatibility list for electrical loads.
