Troubleshooting a SolarEdge system with a wireless gateway connection

Your SolarEdge inverter uses a wireless gateway to connect your solar energy system to the internet. You should be able to see it near your inverter. It’s usually a square, grey box with fasteners that has Philips head ridges at each corner.


You don’t actually need to open the box as all the troubleshooting is done seamlessly through the Vivint Solar App for Apple or Android. Now, let’s make one last attempt to get your solar energy system back online.
