Supercharging Your EV with the Right Internet Connection

As electric vehicles (EVs) surge in popularity across the UK, installing a home charging station is becoming an essential consideration for EV owners. While a basic charging unit can get the job done, having an internet-connected “smart” charger opens up a wealth of possibilities for convenience, cost savings, and future-proofing.

Remote Monitoring and Control

One of the standout benefits of an internet-connected EV charger is the ability to monitor and control it remotely via a smartphone app or web portal. You can check the charging status, view usage data and statistics, and even start or stop a charging session from the comfort of your home or office.

Over-the-Air Updates

Just like your mobile devices, smart EV chargers require periodic software updates to receive new features, bug fixes, and security patches. With an internet connection, these updates can be delivered seamlessly over-the-air, ensuring your charger stays up-to-date without any manual effort.

Load Management

Many UK energy suppliers offer reduced electricity rates for EV charging during off-peak hours. An internet-connected charger can automatically adjust its charging schedule to take advantage of these lower rates, potentially saving you a tidy sum on your utility bills.

Compatibility with Public Charging Networks

If you frequently need to charge your EV while out and about, having a connected charger at home allows you to easily access and take advantage of various public and workplace EV charging networks that require an internet connection for authentication, payment processing, and usage tracking.
