How to set up and connect to VRM

I am new to Victron and have a MPPT VE 150/100 Solar Charge Controller and a Smart Shunt on my battery. I have both set up to Victron Connect and while in blue tooth range can get data on both units. When I try and set up VRM, I get "No devices found". I have my own wifi router through cellular which both my phone and tablet (put connect on both) are logged into, but I cannot figure out how to remotely monitor my solar. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Bluetooth alone is not enough to push data to VRM.
You need a Cerbo GX or similar monitoring device to connect to VRM. This device will then need to be wired to all the separate components and setup to push data online to VRM. Alternative is using a Raspberry Pi and installing Venus OS on it.
