V3.0 is a regression
I’ve been using Enphase for the last couple of years since installating my home solar system. I found the previous V2 interface easier to get current data, and it worked equally well with both my iPhone and iPad... Sadly, the new V3.0 that came out today may look like a better or more modern interface to some with it’s larger graphics, but getting to current data just isn’t as intuitive — at least to me. There seems to be less info per screen, and little things like monthly view shows relative bars for the previous month, but no dates to get a sense of when things were going on and how weather patterns effected performance. Additionally, I use my iPad most of the time and V3.0 has lost a horizontal mode that I use 99.9% of the time, so now I have to turn my iPad into portrait mode with my keyboard on the side to use the app.
Love my inverters and solar array. Love the ability to get to real time and historical data of my system performance via the app — thank you. ...but sadly, the presentation of that information just isn’t doing it for me any more. There is work to be done.
Good app overall, with some changes would be great
This app gives me what I need overall with some room for improvement. One thing that is annoying is that enphase doesn't give me access to all of the data, like per panel output. The data is there but for some reason they restrict access to it? Dunno why? Maybe make the information inactive by default and let more advanced users turn on access? My neighbor installed his own system and I'm jealous of all the data he has access to, really lame that since I didn't install my system I can't see that data.
I have noticed that if I am not on my home network I don't have access to the envoy, which I understand, but when I get home I still cannot access it unless I kill the app and reload it.
Also it would be cool if there was a gadget on the home screen I could more easily look at to see the graph of consumption and production, and net power... this would mean I wouldn't need to open the app I could just look at the gadget.
V3.0 is terrible vs V. 2.xx
I have explored this version and I think it is terrible. The types of reports you can run have been greatly reduced. For example the report that let you look at multiple reports by year with monthly detail side by side is gone? How can look at historical data without this. Graphs are terrible now, above and below bar charts don’t let you see what is happening easily at a glance. If you are not technically inclined this may be O.K.but if your more analytically inclined it’s a downgrade! Perhaps you could add the old reports and format as a second optional skin / interface?
As for other commenters who don’t see panel level monitoring in the birds-eye view etc. It is because your installer didn’t offer it to you so you only see system level monitoring in aggregate. Some don’t want you to have it because customers call them too much about the info it provides confuses some customers. Shading, weather, time of day etc. I negotiated it in my contract and got them to pay for it as they claim it’s a few hundred dollar upgrade. I think you should have it so call your installer.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
