  1. hi all hope all is well is there any way to add something like google AdSense to my hotspot (captive portal) status page i know mikrotik as a ads thing build in but that feels more would work with a 50 min free voucher with adverts as the mikrotik build in one forces you to watch the add or else it cut your connection and manually putting in banners is hard bc the businesses does not trust you as there is no easy way for them to check that the ad is being shown and also will there be any issues bc i from my google searches i find things of this bc illegal bc it would look like 500+ devices viewing ads from one public ip
  2. hi sorry for the late reply got carried away with ather matters but basically my inverter is generic it works with win power but the issue is it needs to run on a pc and that eats power from battery's il se if i can find the make but i think its a common banded over inverter(i think the word for it is OEM) i did try ather forms but i no answers (and i dont want to get band for bumping a post Dont know why but thay like to ban me for that) i wanted to use the pi bc its just sitting heir and its a low powered device and it would be nice to control the inverter from any pc phone tabled over the network what i can say at the moment is that it is a MPP style inverter, it looks acsactly like this one but mine hase no branding on it https://shop.thesunpays.co.za/products/4kw-5kva-80a-axpert-pure-sine-wave-inverter-parallel?variant=12269008519239&currency=ZAR&utm_medium=product_sync&utm_source=google&utm_content=sag_organic&utm_campaign=sag_organic&utm_campaign=gs-2018-10-30&utm_source=google&utm_medium=smart_campaign&gclid=CjwKCAjwh7H7BRBBEiwAPXjadgmjjwgoCc-bBRKlFIjbW667C3fsIy_Uc4XaYFCZcLNjASycZ0oy_RoC3BUQAvD_BwE basically the story is where live in south Africa and Eskom decided to rise there payments with 15% at the moment of getting solar (i think is 17% now not sure) we are on a farm so they ask a lot more for power then in cities so 15% is a lot and we work out getting solar and paying of the lot is cheaper that paying Eskom and was our only option bc we couldn't pay Eskom but we can pay the lone
  3. hi all i would like to ask if anyone heir knows of any good software that is free that can be used as a server for monitoring 2 mpp inverters in parallel (and mabe one inverter extra or just plane solar charge controllers) i dont want to go and buy prongs and adaptors (makes me think of apple dongles XD) to wrap around my battery terminals to monitor them that way i found this https://github.com/jblance/mpp-solar and got it working half way its speaks to the inverter but i have to add (-d /dev/hidraw0) before each command for it to work and also the grafana setup does not work bc i dont understand what i must do there it basically just say run it and make a dashboard and nothing more i dont really want to go for payed v bc all the ones i found was not good looking and i dont really have a lot to just spend $200 on something that makes me view my inverter from my pc thats just a few feet away
