Change Name of IOTAWATT


I have two IOTAWATTs and usually refer to them by IP Address - but went in the other day and tried to change the name of the unit in the setup page.

Whenever i type anything in there i am presented with the message

Please Match the requested format - and no matter what i put in there the only format that works is IotaWatt !!

Any ideas ?


I have two units as well. I named them “IoTaWaMP” (Main Panel) and “IoTaWaSP” (Secondary Panel). I think the node name may be limited to 8 characters, but I am not 100% sure about that.

Update: Yep, per the documentation, the name is limited to 8 characters.

Thanks - appreciated.

Seems strange the name being limited to 8 characters
