Setup Smart Home Panel EcoFlow – in this article, we’ll outline the installation process for the smart home panel. Included in the kit is the smart home panel infinity cable that connects to Delta Pro, wall mounts, relay modules, wiring, and connectors. Remove the screws on the top – bottom and sides of the smart home panel to remove the faceplate.

Overview Smart Home Panel Components
First, we’ll take a look at the Relay Modules. Each relay module has two relays as well as an over-current protection fuse. Each module can be replaced without influencing other circuits. The output wire connectors connect with the load hot wires. They are labeled from “number one out” to “number 10 out”.
The input wire connectors connect directly to the circuit breakers in the existing panel. They are labeled from “number one in” to “number 10 in”. Below the input connectors are the Delta Pro input and neutral connections. The wires are labeled “Pro 1 in”, “Pro 2 in”, “N1” and “N2”. The ground bar connects with the ground wire from the main panel. There is an option to choose between single-phase or split phase. For a split-phase setup, permanently remove this connector as shown.
Delta pro can connect with the smart home panel either from the front or from the bottom. These are the knockouts for the wiring conduits. Included are input wires, output wires, neutral wires, and ground wires.
These are the tools you’ll need to install the smart home panel. Level, Screwdriver, Pliers, Wire cutters, Wire nuts, Drill, Conduit (1 inch) or Conduit whip, Wire harness, Tape measure, Multimeter, and Double/Single pole 30A circuit breaker.
Plan Your Wiring
Determine which load circuits will get battery backup from your home circuits. The smart home panel can connect up to 10 circuits from your main breaker box. The smart home panel has 4 circuits that are rated for 30 amps and 6 that are rated for 20 amps. When load planning, consider which home electronics are most important during a blackout. Such as a refrigerator, wall outlets, lights in common areas, wi-fi router, and sump pump.
If Delta Pro will be used for time of use management or solar panel storage consider which electronics will be used. We recommend that the wires that come from the breaker panel to the smart home panel enter from one of the sides of the smart home panel. The output wires can exit from either the top or side. The placement of the smart home panel should follow the local safe electrical clearance distance. The smart home panel should not be installed outside.
Installation Smart Home Panel
Before beginning installation keeps the safety measures in mind.
- Step 1 – Mounting the smart home panel. Position and install one mounting bracket on the wall. Then attach a second mounting bracket to the back of the smart home panel. Hang the smart home panel by the mounting bracket then screw the third mounting bracket on the bottom.
- Step 2 – Wiring the smart home panel. Install the relay modules at the position corresponding to the load circuits that they plan to use. Remove the desired knockouts on the smart home panel and the main breaker panel and attach the conduit and conduit whip. Connect the ground wire to the ground bus. Connect the output wires they are labeled “1 out” to “10 out”. Connect the input wires they are labeled “1 in” to “10 in”. Connect the Delta Pro input wires they are labeled “pro 1 in”, “pro 2 in”, “n1” and “n2”.
- Step 3 – Wiring the main load center. Turn off the main breaker in each branch circuit breaker and make sure the system is completely de-energized using a voltage detector. Pass all of the wires through the conduits. Connect the ground wire and the two neutral wires to their buses. Connect the charging circuit for the Delta Pro. Each delta pro needs to feed off one 30 ampere breaker from the main panel to enable the fast charge function. To connect the inputs, remove the hot wire from the circuit breaker. Connect each input wire to the corresponding circuit breaker. To connect the outputs, connect each load hot wire to the corresponding wires from the smart home panel using wire nuts. Repeat this connecting process for all 10 circuits. The smart home panel has the option for a split-phase setup with 240 volts which requires two delta pro units. Each Delta Pro takes up to 5 of the circuits once the switching connector is removed. The same phase connection should be mirrored in the smart panel and the load center.
- Step 4 – Install the infinity plugs. A Delta Pro unit can be connected to the smart home panel either from the front or from the bottom. Remove the cap from the dummy port, and install it onto the one you do not want to use. Then unscrew the infinity port from inside the smart home panel and connect to the port you wish to use.
