I've been researching but doesn't appear that anyone has already asked/answered this, so apologies if this is a double-up. I'm new to the forum, Victron, raspberry and linux, so I'm learning my way :)
I'm wishing to have a safe shutdown option for a Venus Pi (preferably a 3b+) as it will be inaccessible and also likely experience power loss overnight during the winter months (off-grid DC setup, huge battery and solar but also a power hungry system).
I don't want to take the chance of just pulling the power, because any corruption of the micro SD card will be a huge pain to remedy. It would need to be a fully automated process (all of the Raspberry shutdown procedures I've seen need to be manually triggered) - and also having UPS functionality would be an added bonus.
The PiJuice HAT seems to be the most intuitive hardware option, however it appears that the 'soft shutdown' function only works through scripts on a Raspbian OS, and so doesn't appear to be compatible with the Venus OS.
It would seem to me that my options are -
1. Find someone who has PiJuice or similar properly working on a Venus OS, who can provide advice for activating automated safe shutdown
2. Find an old Venus package for Raspbian, and PiJuice should work out of the box (anyone have a link?)
3. An alternative software / hardware / UPS option which offers safe shutdown functionality (any suggestions?)
4. Get a Cerbo instead? (assuming they won't be affected by sudden power loss)
Has anyone come across this situation before and provide any advice please? I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel, I can reasonably follow other people's coding but have zero coding experience of my own.
