Monitoring Features & Pricing

Tigo offers a Freemium version of its software services. The feature matrix at the bottom describes what features are free and which are premium or paid-for. There are no requirements for “free” level of monitoring other than the purchase of the Tigo hardware (Smart Modules or retrofit) and a connection to the Internet. 






Reports: Automated emails or SMS messages showing system production (daily
and/or monthly).

“Free” Data Granularity: The free version includes 1-minute data granularity for an
entire month, then drops to month-level granularity for an entire year, and then
drops to year-level granularity for dates outside of that range. As an example on
April 9, 2014 I can see back to March 1 with day-level granularity, January 1, 2013
with month-level granularity, and the entire history of the system as annual totals.

Premium Data Granularity: Shows 1-minute data granularity for the full history of
the system.

Safety Alerts: Automated alerts (email or SMS) that includes all safety-related
notifications, ie. PV-safe activation, system shutdown, over-voltage.

Performance Alerts: Automated alerts (email or SMS) e.g. low string or module production.

Dashboard: This is the fleet management tool that is usually the first page you
see when you log in to the software. This includes the Google Maps integration,
the fleet-level statistics, environmental impact analysis etc.

Device Integration: Support for 3rd party hardware like AC meters, inverters etc.

Performance Analytics: Compare module-to-module, string-to-string or inverter-to-inverter in bar chart or line graphs.

Trending Data Charts: Observe system performance over time, from the module
level to the entire system level.

Ability to download: Export data directly to a .csv document.
