Do you want to start a charge automatically, just by plugging in your car to your charger?
When you set your car to "private access" (not visible for the other EV drivers), you can enable the feature Auto Start, which is going to allow you do to so. With Auto Start you can plug your charger to your car to start the charge either immediately with no need to open the app. 🙌
This feature can only be used when your charger is set to Private (and not Public).
1. Under navigation "Chargers", click on the Setting icon (⚙️)
2. Select "Access settings"
3. Select "Private"
4. Enable Auto Start
Slide the toggle to "On" for "Enable Auto Start" and click on "Save changes".
5. How it works
In order for the feature to work you need to perform at least one manual charge first. This is required, because when you use Auto Start the Monta app starts the charge based on the last charging settings you have used.
To adjust and remember the charging settings that Auto Start will use, go to your charger and set the vehicle (optional), the charge amount and the pick up time.
After this swipe on "Charge now" to start the charge. After you perform this one charge with activated "Auto Start", the next time you want to charge, the app will remember your settings and use them.
6. First Auto Start charging session
Plug in your car and start charging! That's how easy it is!
