Your solar battery system is there to make your life a little easier, so we made the Reposit app to make it easier to manage your system. Don’t worry if you’re behind the eight ball with technology, we’ll walk you through how to make the most of your Reposit app.

See your usage stats

With the click of a button, you’ll be able to see how often you’ve used appliances like your washing machine or dishwasher and then choose the most efficient times to power them based on your usage and solar generation.

 

By installing smart plugs and the free web service If This, Then That (IFTTT), you can use this information to program your appliances to use energy when it’s most cost efficient for you, even if you’re not home! IFTTT uses Applets to cleverly distribute the energy you’re generating between power-hungry appliances. And you won’t have to worry about ducking out of a work meeting to turn on your dishwasher; Reposit will do it all for you using the information it has learned about you.  

Stay notified

We’ll send the occasional notification through the app, so you’ll know straight away when you have cheap electricity available, if there are planned system tests or new information about your system available. 

Work out your budget

When you provide us with your tariff information, you’ll be able to see how much your electricity costs you and when. You can view your average daily, weekly and monthly costs with just a tap and see a complete breakdown of how much energy you’re buying and selling.

Keep it healthy

The best way to make sure your solar power system is running smoothly is by staying ahead of any issues that could come up. Your Reposit app will help you keep on top of your battery status and help troubleshoot problems. Say your family has expanded or kids have flown the coop; using the app, you can adjust your system to use more energy at different times of the day or export more to the grid. 

Hibernate any time of the year

Your Reposit box will monitor your power usage habits to make predictions on how much energy you require and when. If you’re away from home, you won’t need to worry about wasting your hard-earned solar power. By logging your travel dates into the Hibernate function on the app, Reposit will know to optimise your solar battery set up for minimal energy usage during that time – saving you money for your adventure and energy for when you return.
