  • Bluetooth (BLE) 4.0 Connection  The SMART App automatically detects and communicates with Tigo's Cloud Connect Advanced (CCA) (the universal datalogger); connects without changing the Mobile phone settings; and eliminates the need to manually switch to Wi-Fi.
  • Prompted Configuration Steps  The installation time for installers is minimized thanks to the SMART App's prompted configuration steps during the layout process.
  • Production Tracking – With the highest granularity and visibility in the market, users monitor the module-level production in real-time, day, week, month, year, and lifetime.
  • Intelligent Alerts  Review detailed alerts at the touch of a button, and receive corrective actions.
  • Localized Weather Conditions – Daily weather displays help define production errors due to clouds, snow, etc.
  • Personalized Imagery – Customize a system's portal with photos of the PV installation.

"The user experience for our customers to access and manage their PV systems from anywhere, anytime is very important to us," says Maxym Makhota, VP of Software Engineering & Development at Tigo. "This SMART app builds on Tigo’s history of developing proprietary tools and technology that streamline the entire system lay out, configuration, and monitoring experience."
