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. Prerequisites and notes
In order to successfully set up your Sicon charge point with Monta, you need to do a couple of extra steps before you connect it to Monta. You need to first make sure that your connection is switched to OCPP.
To switch your charge point to use OCPP connection, you need to send an email to Sicon support and ask them to point your charger(s) to Monta’s OCPP url: wss://ocpp.monta.app/
Once you receive an answer from Sicon that your charge point has been pointed to Monta, you can proceed with the installation process.
Please note that this guide is an example on how to connect a Sicon charge point using the Monta app. If you wish to use the Monta Portal, please use this guide here.
If you are connecting the charge point through the Monta Portal, select to connect via OCPP method.
