This is the first version where Home center can read Modbus information. This Modbus information can be visualized and you can build logic functions with it. The focus on Energy monitoring and management.
Improved auto-login for Android app and web browser: although you can store your password, the App or browser did ask you to re-enter your password every now and then. Wit this version this should be less frequently asked.

EMAIL and SMS
Add values from the devices as variables in your SMS and Mail (body and text)
SMS: new Clickatell implementations are not working due to an API change by Clickatell. This will be resolved in the next version
For email settings: some customers noticed it is no longer possible to send emails via Telenet (Belgium). Our advice is to use the GMAIL App-passwords as explained in the Email guide that you find in the manuals and downloads on the module!
On connection loss due to bad network, and eventual recovery after some longer time (minutes or hours) statuses were not updated in Home center, now they are updated automatically.
