Solar-Log’s voice Service with Alexa
SDS will be presenting this new means of communication, new smart energy features, plus the new Gateway Solar-Log 50 at the Intersolar in Munich. Solar-Log web Enerest will allow PV plant owners to use the Alexa Voice Service to make verbal inquiries about their own PV plant performance. At Intersolar 2018, Solar-Log Skill will be available in Amazon's Alexa Skills store.
Questions like, "Alexa, how is my plant?" or "Alexa, how much money have I earned with my plant?" can be answered in either English or German, says SDS. Plant owners will also be able to ask questions like, "when is the best time to vacuum?". The answer is not based on how dirty the floor is, but rather on the current amount of available PV power and the expected PV surplus over the next two days. With this new Solar-Log WEB Enerest function, PV energy becomes more present and PV monitoring becomes simpler and more intuitive for plant owners to use. (nhp)
