I’ve got an EV and charging via a normal wallsocket outside my house. I would like to automate the process of arriving home with the car (VW e-golf) and triggering the socket to toggle automatically.
It is just a normal 230v 16a socket, no CEE or Mennekes. Although connected to a sepperate 3-phase group it is currently only connected via one phase. On that phase i’ve a Shelly 1pm installed that measures the consumption and switches the socket on/off.
*maybe in the future I’d switch to 11kW charging but charging granny style does cut it for now.
switching it on/off is the process I would like to automate, it would be awesome to just do this with geofencing via Homey but I’ve never find this accurate. most of the time it doesn’t work, the times it does register anything is not accurate.
So the only thing that currently stands is geofencing.
I’ve looked in a BLE tracker but with a range of 8m I don’t know if it will catch the signal.
Smart pressence is also not very accurate and not really viable for my car.
What are the options?
