The EV Charger will share some settings with other devices. Information about managing those shared features can be found here.
How to get to Settings/Info:
There are two ways to access the settings and info options for the EV Charger:
1.) From within the app, you can tap the app menu icon (three bars, upper left corner) and go to Manage Devices, where you can select your EV Charger by name.
2.) Can tap the charger icon next to the EV Charger name from the Home screen. Then on the Control page for the charger, can select the "gear" icon in the upper right hand corner to get to Settings.
About Available Settings:
A fairly standard Settings page for the EV Charger will look like this:
EV Charger Info will take you to the information and settings page (covered next).
Schedule will take you to the scheduling settings options/page. Can also access from the "Management" button at the bottom of the app as well as the EV Charger control page. Details about how to manage Schedules can be found here.
Reset WiFi, Clear Data, and Remove from Account features are covered in our General Device Settings article.
EV Charger Info:
Tapping on the EV Charger Info menu option in the above Settings page will take you to Info:
Name of EV Charger, Serial, and Firmware Version are features covered in our General Device Info article.
Nest Under information can be found here.
Primary Vehicle is an optional field at the moment. We'll be adding more features/functionality to that field (as well as other car/vehicle settings) in the future. You can add your car make/model to this field for now as an optional description for the EV Charger.
Dedicated Breaker / Max Charge is a very important field to manage the EV Charger safely. You'll want to select the maximum breaker rating value (as shown on the breaker) in this field and we'll automatically keep your charge rate under the specified amount. It is very important to make sure you don't set an amperage higher than your breaker or NEMA plug rating. If using the included NEMA plug, you'll want to make sure this is set to no higher than "40A (7.7kW/32A max charge)". The max charge amount shown is 20% less than the breaker rating to comply with NEC code and regulations.
Status is a field to show you the current/real-time behavior of the EV Charger. Should match the current status shown on the Control page within the app.
