I see where there are a lot of options for accessing devices with other systems, but I cannot find anything for the Smart Shunt (500). It doesn't appear to work on windows at all, and the linux version of Connect seems to require a GUI. I was hoping to integrate battery monitoring with other aspects of an astronomy system, for example to get an alert if the SOC drops below some threshhold, park the telescope, shut down gracefully.
Is there any mechanism for programmatically accessing its data via Blue Tooth, on Linux (preferred) or Windows?
It is standalone, not part of a larger system of Victron devices (well, I have a Victron charger but it will not be with the telescope in use).
Also, on a related question: Am I correct there is no remembered state of charge if the shunt is disconnected? That you have to manually enter it, and/or let the battery charge fully? As opposed on power-up to resuming where it left off?
But my main goal is to be able to monitor it from an automation system during unattended imaging.
