OpenEVSE WiFi Now Available

One of the most requested features, WiFi connectivity with Energy Monitoring is now available for OpenEVSE Charging Stations. Adding a WiFi Module will allow Real time Current and Temperature measurements to be sent to an energy Monitoring server at https://data.openevse.com

In true Open Source fashion the servers are based on the Open Energy Monitor EmonCMS Project allowing extreme flexibility. Your dashboard can be customized with inputs from multiple products and sensors. My personal dashboard contains:

  • OpenEVSE 50A Deluxe
  • OpenEVSE 30A Basic (added Current measurement CT)
  • Open Energy Monitor (Garage Temperature and Solar Current)
  • Rainforest Eagle Zigbee Gateway via Python script
  • EV - Tesla Range and SOC via Python script
  • EV - Nissan Leaf Range and Bars via Python Script

Feel Free to explore my Dashboard
