Legion Solar App - When is the app going to be functional? I've been told Q1, then Q2. Q2 closes in 3 weeks. I'm a round one and round two backer. I'm happy with the output of my round one devices and their performance except for the lack of a functioning app

Any updates, pics from a tropical island, pics of shipping labels, tracking numbers, refund process?

Review from Kickstarter
How about not waiting until the end of the month and give us an update now. We are invested in this project and you keep moving your shipping dates. You need to be keeping us backers updated more frequently. I get it that this is a kickstarter and there are usually delays but you have got to keep us up-to-date when there are shipping date changes or you are just keeping us on the dark and getting us mad because we haven’t received our solar panels.

Guys a little honesty goes a loooooong way, and so does information. YOU WERE GOING TO DELIVER MY STARTER KIT WITH 2 PANELS IN MARCH!! Well? where are they? You talked the talk but you do not walk the walk. Ship my starter kit or give me my money back . YOU ARE 3 MONTH BEHIND SCHEDULE! i Don't want to hear pitch on how I am going to get screwed by my electric company because I do not install a $300 device that should have been included to begin with, THIS IS NICKEL AND DIME FECES! WHAT ELSE YOU ARE GOING TO PROMOTE BEFORE YOU SEND ME WHAT I BOUGHT?

Review from Kickstarter
I have called your company several times.
Your company still has not refunded my money that I requested a week ago for the extra parts, if you do not return my money promptly I’m going to call the Better Business Bureau and make a complaint. I will also have my neighbor that purchased your system to make a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. This is up to you, Refund my money now or you will have complaints registered to your company.

Dude, that’s almost 2 weeks from now can’t you just take five minutes out of your day and update us when “We” are going to get our products that we paid for. I can’t believe how lacks your company is, you act like you don’t care, quotation marks.. “oh at the end the month will tell you something” 🤨 I’m never doing a project with you again, this is the third time I’ve purchased your products.

Please provide an update on shipping systems and the solar regulators.
I travel quite a lot and I need to know way in advance to ensure I am home to receive these items. I am sure there are many others that need to make the same plans.

@Joshua - The website contents are still under construction in preparation for our legionsolar.com launch with the GPS builder. Please be patient with us as we are nearing completion on our website and setting it up. We will be sending an up by the end of the month. @adele - The SolarRegulator is a superset of Solar Hub. This means that all functions and features of Solar Hub are inside Solar Regulator. You are getting both in 1 form factor. @Brett - We will have all of this information on our new website legionsolar.com shortly. It will have videos and explain in detail how everything works. In the mean time here are some helpful video links:

When will you be shipping out my products..? I’ve paid extra for your “Solar Regulator” and additional parts. if you’re not going to ship parts, I want to refund on what I paid extra for until you decide to ship my original purchase via kick starter. Refund my credit card for the extra purchase until you ship my original order I find this very absurd as you’re dragging me along and I paid extra money reluctantly. 😿

Review from Kickstarter
Hello,
do you have a timeline for shipping and do you have a rail mounting system that is complete. One where you dont have to order brackets and everything separate? Or would you be able to provide a schematic to show all the parts required for rail mount system?
Cheers

Review from Kickstarter
The solarhub was paid for when it was included in the package. I bought also the solar regulator...both should be included in the delivery.
Joshua Williams
Review from Kickstarter
Hey just wanted to ask on your site you put the start pack separate but don't offer an upgrade to solar regulator? It seems on the site the solar Hub and SolarRegulator are 2 separate products which would entitle getting both the hub and regulator. I think you should change it to offer an upgrade with the start set otherwise a customer should get both hub and regulator.

It may have defaulted you to a shipping option that is paid depending on the device you're using. Please be sure to select Free Shipping Worldwide (USPS 1st Class w/ Tracking) $0 option.

Ah... maybe it was because I was trying to buy it through my phone that it pushed me onto a version of shipping that cost something. If so, you might want to try that out.

The special price for SolarRegulator of $150 is an upgrade from SolarHub to SolarRegulator. If you would like to receive both a SolarHub and the Solar Regulator we will be happy to quote you the additional cost. Please feel free to message us anytime. We're here to help. Thank you.

Review from Kickstarter
And I only have one more day to decide whether I give you $200 which I think is preposterous that you force people to do business this way.
I question your values, what’s next are you gonna have this another product that I have to buy?
Bucci
Review from Kickstarter
Dear PLX, If I decided to buy your “Solar Regulator” I am requesting that you shipped my “solar hub” which I’ve already paid for. Why would you take a product that I’ve already paid for and give me something else which I paid extra for and not give me the original product that I purchased? This doesn’t make sense? This is not legally or ethically?

Legion Solar is one of our most ambitious endeavors to fight the war on clean energy. Many members of our Legion Solar team have taken on this challenge and are working for no pay to contribute to the advancement of this technology and for deployment to the mass market. This is not an excuse or a plea for sympathy. The reality is there are associated costs that must be managed to make this project successful and prices we’ve set have always leaned towards the generous side for our backers. Kickstarter is not a retail store but a platform to implement new ideas and it is a journey that all of our backers share. We thank all of our backers for your amazing support. We are committed to serving you and we’re excited for you to get your reward. @Bucci - All items included in the reward have been fully disclosed prior to campaign end (see comments below). If you add SolarRegulator before the deadline it’s $150, if you add it later it’s $199. The deadline is required for production/planning/execution purposes. @Darren - SolarRegulator purchased from our online store includes free worldwide shipping. Make sure you select the free shipping option. http://www.plxdevices.com/Legion-DIY-Plug-and-Play-Solar-p/897346002405.htm If you found this to be an error, please message us. @Alister - We have an online builder that will become live soon where you will be able to use your address to build Legion Solar on a satellite view. In the mean time, the form is just temporary. If you have any questions with the form please message us, we’re here to help.

Review from Kickstarter
I too was thinking about this yesterday. So, 6 months ago I back your project sight unseen. I commit my money upfront. Now 6 months later I have “Only” 2 days to decide if I want to pay an extra $200.00 for the “SOLAR REGULATOR TECHNOLOGY” or even have to pay more later if I do not buy this now.?
This is not fair, you should make this available to all the original backers who helped you fund your “TECHOLOGY” before and after the campaign delivers. By the way if I upgrade to get to keep my paid for in advance “Soloar Hub”, if I update. I want my “paid” for products and then with the extra money I’m spending you can include the new solar regulator. That business and that’s fair.!
Darren Wade
Review from Kickstarter
Okay so I found the note in this set of comments that this replaces and expands upon the Solar Hub both as a unit and in functionality. If that is the case, why are you charging shipping above and beyond since you said you'd be giving free shipping and below you said you'd be replacing the hub in the package that we receive.

@Joshua - We will pair your Solar Regulator purchase with your pledge. If we are unable to pair your name with your pledge, our team will reach out to you to confirm your backer number with your purchase. If you would like to message us your backer number and the sales receipt number of the purchase from our website that would be helpful in ensuring that there is no error when fulfilling your reward. @Bucci - All of the items included in your reward have been fully disclosed prior to campaign end. Please see first question in FAQ and public comments dated Oct 13, 2017. We mentioned that Solar Regulator was not included in the pledge and estimated costs would be about $200-$300. We are offering it to our backers for $150. We will have the user manual detailing the installation ready on our website to download around the time Solar Regulator is shipping. You can install the current clamps (split core transformers) on your overhead wires, or inside your panel. This takes a few minutes to do. @Kevin - Solar App is functional, however the first generation SolarHub V1.0 has some issues with obtaining data from the cloud. Legion Solar 2 backers will receive the updated Solar Hub V2.0 utilizing bluetooth direct connection for a more reliable user experience where the app will directly connect with it. V2.0 update is also employed in the SolarRegulator device. We apologize for the technical difficulties with the app experience at this time, it is being resolved. A rough estimate is a June timeframe for the App to be updated. Thank you everyone for your support. R&D is never a straight line but we are committed to making Legion Solar the best system. If you have any questions, please feel free to message or cal us. +1-408-745-7591 M-F 8am-5pm PST.

You have only answered one of my questions. Question two was: When is the solar app going to be updated and functional?

Review from Kickstarter
The sad part about this particular kick starter, I convince my neighbor to buy your product now he too has the buy a regulator or possibly be kicked off the grid because if you overcharge said system utility regulators will require you to disconnect. Yes or no? And you are ignoring my questions which is rude.

Please send picture of how this device is installed. For $200 do I put it inside the house? Or for $200 does it sit outside with the other equipment bolted down to the roof.
The $200 is almost 3/4 of my original pledge if I had any idea that I needed this I might’ve made a different decision. I don’t think you’re being fair or upfront with your information. You must’ve known all along that this was going to happen why was this not stated in the beginning?
Joshua Williams
Review from Kickstarter
So I see how you buy the product but how do you tie the buying of the product with your pledge so that they ship together rather then differently? I see that you can input information again but will this come together with the pledge or will they ship separately? I'm only asking so I get them both at the same time rather you ship the pledge first then the other product with gives you both the hub and regulator.

With your basic pledge, you get the SolarHub only. If you purchase SolarRegulator, your SolarHub gets replaced with SolarRegulaor. SolarHub Features:
*Monitor micro-inverter solar production output SolarRegulator Features:
*Monitor micro-inverter solar production output
*Actively controls each micro-inverter not to produce more energy than your current consumption.
*Monitor your home's energy consumption in real-time Why is SolarRegulator a must have? If you are generating electricity and putting energy back to the grid, your utility company may discover that you have a grid-tied system and may ask you to confirm if you have solar installed. If you confirm that you do, they will ask you to disconnect your system until you apply for interconnection permission with the utility company. This is a expensive and time consuming process. With SolarRegolator, you're not putting energy back to the grid, the utility company will only see less energy used from your home and not a grid tied traditional solar system. This is why we highly recommend all backers have SolarRegulator. @Kevin - SolarRegulaor is grid tied only. @Joshua - If you get SolarRegulator, SolarHub is gets replaced with SolarRegolator and ships as normal. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any detailed questions. It can get a little technical, but it's quite simple to understand. We're here to help. Thanks.

I’m backer 216, Why would I buy a regulator when the system is already complete and working as is. This does not make any sense.? why would I need this extra device?

Review from Kickstarter
I'm as confused as the rest. I pledged for Legion Solar 2 (starter kit & expansion, backer 192, Oct 2017). Does that include the Solar regulator functionality in the Solar hub as part of my kit?
Jeff S
Review from Kickstarter
hi, sorry but I am a bit confused on the functionality differences of the solar hub vs the solar regulator: so far I see: a. solar hub included in starter kit & expanded starter kit (my pledge of 398) b. Solar Regulator: available for separate purchase at 199 (less with coupon) Could you perhaps list the functions and differences they offer? Second question.. if we are getting a solar hub already (with the starter kits) and we purchase the solar regulator is it a separate piece of hardware or is the hardware already built into the solar hub with a feature set being enabled? Is the reverse also true then (if we do not get a solar hub can we simply order a solar regulator and connect panels? thanks much and looking forward to getting our setup going

Will the Solar Regulator permit off-grid use, or is the system still grid-tied only?

Review from Kickstarter
Hey PLX Devices, I was wondering how can you include the solar regulator to ship with your solar panels you bought for this pledge and was wondering how come there is another solar hub included with the purchase of solar regulator or this device different? I just don't want to have to pay shipment 2 times if need be if it can be included on the kickstarter order.
PLX Devices
Review from Kickstarter
@Pasquale - SolarRegulator technology has been built into the SolarHub where it is now 1 enclosure. If you don't purchase the Solar Regulator, you will still get the SolarHub hardware without the functions for Solar Regulator enabled. You also won't receive the calibrated split core transformers that are critical to the function for Solar Regulator to work. @Ricky - We are working through one milestone at a time, we do plan to have the home battery solution in the near future where you will be able to offset night time consumption. Please be patient with us as we are developing and deploying one technology at a time.

Review from Kickstarter
Thank for the update! So is the SolarHub the same thing as the solar regulator? I ordered the starter pack and upgraded to 200W, and it looks like the same thing but calling it by different names? If it is not the same thing, is it something i need to purchase on top of my starter pack? Thank you

Hey there, thanks for your time. I pledged for the 100w starter set and after seeing the latest update I'm wondering if it includes your solar regulator. Could you please break down what exactly comes in the 100w starter set? Also, about the solar regulator, is that something an apartment owner can even install? I noticed there's a couple of devices that go directly onto power lines. That seems more for home owners. Thank you.
