Solar-Log® and Amazon Alexa - Voice Activated Solar Plant Monitoring
Now, with the power of Solar-Log®, if you need performance information about your solar PV plant, just ask for it!
March 24, 2018, Bethel, CT: Solar Data Systems, Inc. announces Solar-Log WEB Enerest™ upcoming compatibility with Amazon Alexa’s Voice Service. Solar-Log WEB Enerest™ will allow PV plant owners to ask Alexa about their solar PV plant status. Plant owners can ask questions like, "Alexa, how is my plant?" or "Alexa, how much money have I earned with my plant?". Alexa will even know the answer to questions like, "when is the best time to vacuum?". The answer will not be based on how dirty the floor is, but rather on the current amount of available solar power and the expected energy production surplus over the next two days. With this new Solar-Log WEB Enerest™ function, plant monitoring becomes simpler and more intuitive for plant owners.
Solar-Log® Skill will be available in Amazon's Alexa Skills store beginning June 2018 in both English and German.
