The Victron SmartSolar MPPT 150/60 updates the BlueSolar MPPT 150/60 with built-in Bluetooth connectivity. This has two advantages:
The Smartsolar 150/60 is a great choice for controlling up to 860 watts of solar panels at 12V, 1720 watts at 24V, or 48V at 3440 watts. With maximum open circuit voltage of 150 volts. It automatically selects between 12, 24, and 48 volts on the output (software tool needed to select 36V). Should the PV input exceed the rating, the controller will simply limit the the throughput to the rated level.
Besides great build quality and a 5-year warranty, the Smart Solar has a number of unique features: The Victron SmartSolar MPPT 150/60 can be connected right out of the box, and a rotary switch lets you choose between 8 preset battery type profiles. More extensive configuration and monitoring is possible via the free app on your smartphone or tablet. Being able to access 30 days’ worth of history, including daily yield and the amount of time spent it each stage, can be valuable for managing your energy collection and use.

I should mention, I have these (I have two, one for house batteries, one for engine start batteries) mounted in my boat, in the engine compartment, each controlling a 100w flex solar panel. They have worked flawlessly and I would recommend this product without hesitation!
They do exactly what I need them to do and require zero interaction once set up!

I was also very pleased with the fit and finish of the Android VictronConnect mobile app, and how easy it was to not only connect over Bluetooth, but to view data and manage the settings. There is no complicated pairing involved, it just scans for ones that are within range. I want to figure out if it’s possible to set a password on it, because I don’t want someone walking by and messing up the settings causing my battery to explode! But the app UI is beautiful, easy to use, and quickly conveys the important information. The history view is nice, as you can see how much power (Wh, max W, and min/max V) was drawn, as well as how much time was spent in bulk/absorb/float. You can also export the history as a CSV directly from the mobile app and email it or save it to your cloud drive, which is very awesome for geeks like me. The settings you can configure are things like the battery profile (lead acid vs lithium, etc) and low temperature cutoff (great for lithium) and they’re really simple to use. Victron has some good videos on YouTube on how to set these devices up, which helps because the manual leaves a bit to be desired.
Another interesting feature that has tons of potential is the VE.Smart networking. From the app, I was able to quickly and easily create a VE.Smart network on the BMV-712, and have the solar controller join the network. Once this happened, the BMV started broadcasting its voltage data over Bluetooth, and the solar controller received the data. This is important because with this data, the solar controller can adjust its charge parameters to account for resistance and voltage drop in the cable. In addition, if you have battery temperature data from the BMV, it can adjust for that as well. I plan on adding a temperature sensor to my BMV soon to try this out.
All in all I am thrilled with the BMV and SmartSolar controller from Victron. I had reserved expectations, so that I wouldn’t be disappointed if the software was not everything they said it would be, but I turned out to be wrong. The build quality is great, the software is great, and everything goes above and beyond their promises. I’m looking forward to adding a Color Control GX and MultiPlus inverter in the near future.
UPDATE: I found that you can change the Bluetooth PIN code from the default. From the app, go into the settings, click the three dots in the top right and choose Product Info, and scroll down to the Bluetooth part and there you can change the PIN code. I wish this was easier to find 🙂 But still so far so good, this solar controller has been working very well.
Programmed the charge controller to 4 volts per battery cell at a max (16 volts, 64 ah). Used the lithium ion preset adjusted slightly. On the load output I set the limit to shut off the load when the voltage on the battery gets below 12.5 volts and stay turned off until the voltage on the battery rises up to 15.85 volts.
In other words, this one box has made my setup thoughtless and automatic. So in cases where my fridge or other loads drains the battery to the minimum it will turn off the battery output until it charges enough to last the night without solar adding voltage. The bluetooth part is nice just to make programming easy and gather statistics.
Can’t really complain about anything on the box or the functionality. It just works and includes enough options to make it seem like magic.

Technical support from Victron is sadly lacking, with Customer Service referring me to the online manual instead of having a Tech person help me.
Update: the vendor (Remote Power Source) sent me a replacement controller without hesitation. The replacement unit worked as designed.
