I'm trying to run an automation through homeassistant, where if the solar yield is big enough to run my pool pump then turn on the pump. Problem is which entity to monitor on victron equipment?
Using solar as a trigger can be a tricky one as for production to be there, there has to be a load.
What you can use reliably is SOC, trigger slightly before full and of you dont want to use battery, trigger one or two percent below full for off.
The other way is based on time, if you know you are in peak between certain times, use that time but also with SOC to prevent the battery from being used.
Additional resources still need to be added for this topic
