The BMV-712 'Smart' is Victron's high precision multi-function battery monitor with built-in Bluetooth. It essentially acts as a battery 'fuel gauge' for anyone needing to keep a check on the performance of their battery or battery bank and can monitor the voltage of a 2nd battery. The information displayed by the BMV-712 includes voltage, current draw, Ah consumed, % charge level, 'time-to-go' and it features a programmable alarm and in-built relay to trigger external equipment under an alarm condition (note: information displayed for 2nd battery is voltage only).
The shunt is fitted in-line with the leisure/house battery's negative cable, the starter/auxiliary battery's negative cable is connected to the shunt's output and fused +ve supplies are taken from each battery into the shunt's 2 inputs. Once the battery monitor is panel-mounted in a suitable location (with or without the supplied square bezel) it is connected to the shunt's PCB using a single RJ12 data/power cable and programmed using the on-board menu.
Built-in Bluetooth allows you to display many of the monitor' features via any Android or Apple device or laptop and most settings of the monitor can be configured with the VictronConnect app
As an alternative to monitoring the voltage of a 2nd battery the BMV-712 shunt's 2nd/auxiliary input can be used for the following:

Excellent device, relatively easy to install, just a 52mm hole in a panel. Serious crimping tool required to install the shunt though. The bluetooth interface comes highly recommended!
Does exactly what it says. Easy to use, easy to install. The only issue was no mounting template but some simple research provided the answers needed.
