Some charge points require you to install Monta on the charge point before you can connect it to your Monta account. We recommend to check out this section of guides, where you can find your charge point brand and follow the installation steps first.
1. Under "Chargers", select the team where to add the charge point
You first begin by selecting where to add your charge point.
In Monta, we use teams, so you can easily differentiate between your personal charge points, and the ones you want to share with family, friends or employees. You can read more about teams and how to create a new one here.
1.a. Add the charge point to your personal team
If you want to add a personal charge point, click on "Chargers" and then select "Add charge point".
1.b. Add the charge point to another team
If you want to add the charge point to a specific team, click on "Chargers" and then select the team, where you want to add the charge point.
Once the team opens, click on "+ Add charge point".
2. Select your charge point brand and model
We try and suggest the charge point effect and the connector type you may have, however if this isn't correct, do update it here.
3. Name your charge point and enter the location
4. Adjust charging settings
This is where you can choose how you want your charge point to work with Monta. You can have it so that it instantly charges, schedules a charge or manually charges or schedules a charge. To read more about how our scheduled SmartCharges work, click here.
Please note that you can always change these settings and you do not have to make the decision at this point. You are able to proceed by clicking on "Add charge point".
5. Click on "Connect to Monta now"
6. Continue with charge point login
Charge points such as Easee, Wallbox and Zaptec, for example, require you to log in with your charge point login credentials at this stage. This is the same login you have for your charge point's app/cloud.
Please note we have used Easee cloud login just as an example. If you see a similar login page, please enter your respective charge point login credentials. You will see the following three screens:
a. Login to the cloud
b. Select your charger
c. Click on "Yes, pair charge point"
If you have used this connection method, continue to step 8.
7. Continue with a serial number
If you see this screen, this means you need to put in your charge point's serial number.
7.a. Insert serial number
7.b. Click on "Check connection"
8. Wait for verification
9. Perfecto! You are now connected to Monta!
🎉 Congrats! You are now connected to Monta! 🎉
