I met problem to collect data from my solar inverter. First of all the model I have:
It’s a basic PIP model where there is also a USB-c in complement of the UART in DB9 connector
The associated software is the Watchpower SP3… The SP3 is important because other software version is not working with.
I am using a RASPI 4 where HA is installed fine with mosquitto broker or MQTT webserver installed (I tried both). MQTT comunication is done with a user/password.
I tested the MQTT link with an ESP32 /w ESPhome and I can listen my topic… so my MQTT setup in HA is fine.
I installed your package as described in the instruction. I tried either via the direct USB cable (USB-c <> USB) or via a serial to USB adaptor. Both are seen with the lsusb command
Of course I set up correctly the mqtt.conf file with the IP of my raspberry/brocker, 1883 as port, homeassistant/sensor/WKS as topic, then the username and password.
Install first the docker-compose software via apt-get and deploy the software as depicted: sudo docker-compose up -d No error in compilation
The problem… I am receiving nothing in HA… No new entities discovered… And when I am trying to listen MQTT nothing appeared. Here is the log with mosquitto MQTT
