This is a guide that shows how to install Monta on your charge point. If you want to connect your charge point to your Monta account, please follow the steps in the end of the guide.
Please note that when you connect your charge point to Monta, we become the operator of the charge point. This means that you need to use Monta to control the charging process.
1. Establish a connection between your PC and the charge point
The first step is to establish the connection between your PC and the charge point you will be integrating. This can happen in one of two ways:
(1) Connect your PC and the charge point to the same ethernet switch.
OR (2) Connect your PC directly to your charge point.
2. Power on your charge point
3. Give a static IP to your PC in the same network as your charge point
The charge point and your device must be on the same local area network, which will give them local IP addresses 192.168.0.X.
The IP of your charge point is 192.168.0.10.
You need to set your PC's IP in a range between 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.254. You can put the value of the last number to be anything between 1 and 254, except for 10.
For example, 192.168.0.11 can be set as a static IP to your PC.
To access these settings please press Win+R and follow the flow as shown here.
4. Open up internet browser to 192.168.0.10
5. Log into the admin panel
