Monitor Victron BMV-712 Bluetooth Over WiFi

I was frustrated with the Victron BMV-712 Bluetooth and only being able to use the APP while in close proximity to the monitor. So I went searching for a solution.

I utilized Remote Desktop to access the Monitor APP on the computer located in my RV over WiFi and now I can view the status of the system from anywhere…

You’ll need to download the Victron PC APP and purchase the VE.Direct to USB Cable.
