Connection betwen SmartSolar i Phoenix ve.direct

Hello,

Question 1.:

I have a smartsolart mppt 75/15 and a Phoenix Ve.direct 12/500. Is it possible to connect both devices and access (VictronConnect APP) to the inverter via Bluetooth (smartsolar)?

Question2.:

This illustration (link image below) shows the connection (for REMOTE switching) between BlueSolar and Phoenix Inverter. The options is are without Phoenix 12/500 only. What an option for him?

Answer to question 1: To connect both devices to the Victron connect app you will have to add a Victron Bluetooth dongle to the Phoenix inverter via its own VE direct port. You cannot piggyback the Phoenix into the bluetooth comms of the Smart solar by linking the VE direct ports on each device.

Answer to question 2: If you look at the text under 'Figure 5' of your link, there is a note about how to remote switch a Phoenix with a VE direct port such as the 12/500.
