    I have never had any settings change as a result of an upgrade in firmware.

      Thanks that is reassuring. I did the upgrade everything seems to be fine, I should have thought about it before I did the upgrade

        Did you do the upgrade to 4.11.30? That's what I found here: https://www.solaredge.com/us/setapp-inverters-firmware

        Do you have installers account?

        I've been having a lot of issues with the cellular dropping out and not having production data until a day later when it magically reconnects. I'd switch to WiFi but I'm not sure even with the update if the unit only does WiFi for the SetApp and not to report data back. Or will US models now do WiFi for more than SetApp?

          This is exactly why I did the update, the cell connection was constantly dropping out the my original installer really doesn't care and pay attention to these b/c they have thousands of customers and can care less about me. Normally i'm the one reporting the problems.

          I can tell you it fixed the cell drop out issue. I have not had any issues since the update. Yes I have an installer account. Got fed up with my solar company not doing any monitoring.

            If you don't have an installer account you can ask SolarEdge to push it, only they can do it, the installer account itself doesn't have that ability you have to be on site and connect to the inverter but SolarEdge I believe does have the ability on their end to push it.

              Ok, thanks. Now I just have to decide if I want to ask my installation company if they can give me installer account status on my system, or just ask SolarEdge to push it. Given my tech knowledge level and the want to potentially have the higher level of access in case things go wrong down the road, I might just ask to get installer status. But at the same token being less involved in terms of tracking usage to just short of perhaps obsession at my prior house, all I really want to do is catch any issues no later than 24 hours after the fact -- ie I'm pretty sure I'll always be checking daily production.

                The process is more involved if you want an installer account. Also since your inverter is already registered with your solar company you can't just open an installer account and expect them to be able to transfer those rights to you. There is multiple systems involved and your current installer can't just hand that over. It will take opening a ticket and case to get that process going and even than it is not fast. You might be better of just asking them to come to your house to update it. Also the portal does not give you the level of alerts you would think. I wanted more detailed and finite parameters to set for alerts, forget it, you don't have any of that, you have simple options to turn on and off some alerts. You will actually have more insight if you just look at your daily production or check the inverter itself frankly. You gain the ability to upload firmware, the rest is meh, they really need to add more capability and more fine tuned options for alerts.

                  New firmware just released. 4.12.35. No release notes up on their web page yet, and I cannot see any obvious differences.
