Can I plug the smart dongle into the BMS (remote rj45 socket) to get functionality when using the App on my phone, switch on/off etc.

Which part exactly are you trying to connect it too?
I have a multiplus C12/1600 and wanted to use the smart dongle so I can switch it on/off/inverter only. The dongle worked plugged into the multiplus when I had lead acid batteries, however now I can see what the multiplus is doing but nothing happens when I try to switch off/on etc. The other thing is I’m not getting any error messages.
I was hopping that by plugging the dongle into the remote socket of the ve bus for the Victron lipo battery I would get the functionality back for the multiplus.
I think you will find that if you have a VE BMS installed and assistants setup then ONLY a DMC will turn the multis on/OFF.
Additional resources still need to be added for this topic
