Connect 5.8: can I use AC input control..or is ESS better?

Can I set the multiplus to use the batteries down to a safe minimum level, ignoring the grid connection,and then charge them up fully again...while also using shore power as 'power assist' to cover spikes in demand from appliances..?




Just joined the forum, so many thanks for any advice,
