Updated Tesla App Lets You Pair Your Phone with Wall Connectors
As noticed by the folks over at Tesla North, the latest Tesla app update has finally introduced the ability to pair your smartphones to your Wall Connectors for select users.
According to the source, the feature is currently being rolled out to some Tesla users in the United Kingdom. In a tweet posted by @TeslaUpdateInfo, the account shared a photo of the “Manage Products” screen once the Wall Connector is added, as shown right beneath the vehicle and Powerwall menus.
Another image also shows the “Wall Connector Setup” screen, in which the app refers to the program as a beta program.
On the screen headed “Welcome to Wall Connector Beta,” Tesla writes, “Set up your Wall Connector to see charging data and get the latest software updates.” The setup screen also notes that only Generation 3 or newer devices are compatible with the app.
“When paired, you get to see cool graphics of the Wall Connector installed in a garage. You also can schedule charging and also set up a randomized delay between 0 to 10 minutes at the start and end of your charging, to help relieve pressure off local energy grids.”
The Tesla Wall Connector allows users to control which vehicles charge, among other useful control options and statistics.
