ANNOUNCEMENT: We are releasing a new accessary for supporting controllers or inverters long distance remote control, thanks for your patient.


INFORMATION: We have tested the web firmware, it will be updated successfully by following the listed instructions carefully, also we achieved long distance remote control by opening ports (require basic IT skills), but each country with different Telecom company will provide different ports, which means we cannot support a specific instruction of long distance remote control, customers must find out how to set it up by themselves.


IMPORTANT: The eBox-WiFi-01 device is made for home-use (about 15m² available range), which means it suppose not to support long distance remote control, but some of our DIY customers who found out they can achieve the long distance remote control by enable the STA mode of the device, this mode was removed due to the instability of connection, we decide to release it again because there are customers who willing to take the risk for using. We don't recommend the firmware update, and EPEVER will not be liable for any danger, loss, or damage caused by the update.
