How to: two smart solar devices networked to a bmv712

I have, in my RV smart two solar controllers and a soon to be BMV 712.

I understand from some users on this site that the smart solar devices can synch together so they stay in the same charge mode, ie share the charge current.

To do this i think i link all three devices in the same blutooth network. But then what? Do they them synch their modes by talking to the BMV 712?

Is there any other component I need to make this work?

Currently, my solar devices will work on their own, but together, only the highest output device seems to supply full current. The other stays at 0Amps. Although I'm not sure the fact that its the solar controller with the brightest panels that triggers it to be the only provider.

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes you can create a BT network between the 712 and the CC’s. It will share current and voltage info from the 712 to help the CC’s perform.
