I tried googling but didn’t find the answer that would explain a few questions I have.
I tried and configured the Venus GX and connected it to my HA via MQTT successfully.
At the moment, all Victron sensors I have are modbus based.
Questions I have: is there a benefit of obtaining data from Victron via MQTT vs Modbus?
I did read the general explanation of protocol differences, MQTT is newer, more secure, blah, blah, but is that applicable in a closed network (protected from www) and with Victron to RaspberryPi4 combination?
Second question I have (never reached this point) - once MQTT is configured with Venus GX and HA, I never saw any new entities or sensors from Victron in HA.
How would the MQTT Victron data and devices be shown in HA?
Sensors, entities, etc?
(I did have automation running that was refreshing every 30sec and I have checked with MQTT Explorer that all was configured in order - followed this: Link
