The different ports of the Smartbirds dongle
This is the only port that can be used to plug the Smartbirds dongle into the smartmeter.
This port allows to get the Smartbirds dongle data on another asset. please note that this second port is powered like the Smartbirds dongle via the P1 port of the smartmeter. If you are experiencing some perturbation after usage of the passthrough P1 it’s probably linked to an overconsumption of your added device on the power supply provided by the smartmeter. In that case we recommands you to install a powered splitter.
This port allows you to control an asset of your choice via the Smartbirds app.
PS: This feature is not yet available.
Sheme of different setups
Depending on where you live, you might have one of these two setups:
In this case, You need to plug in only one dongle to your Smartmeter. Follow the steps as shown in the Smartbirds manual to connect to the app.
2. You have two separate smartmeters
If you have two separate smartmeters for consumption and production, you need to add two dongles, each plugged on one smartmeter. This way, your Production and Consumption data will be displayed on the Smartbirds app.
PS: Once you defined the dongles as “Consumption” or “Production” by plugging it to the corresponding smartmeter, you cannot use them interchangeably
How to connect two dongles to the Smartbirds app?
