Smart Charging your EV
Charge Smart - what can it do for you?
We pride ourselves on providing our customers with smart charge points and services. But what makes a charge point smart and what are the advantages of having a smart charge point?
Plugging in your car
Many electric vehicle users currently plug their car into any wall socket available at home. New EV-drivers can find this practical, because what more do you need? Just as with fueling your car at a gas station. But wait, is it the same though? At a gas station you can see exactly how much litres you have pumped and how much you need to pay. Your wall socket at home will not provide you with this information - unless you go smart!
Advantages of smart charging
All our charge points are cloud connected, which means is that there is a sim card within the charge point, enabling it to communicate with myNewMotion. There are several things this connection allows you to do:
- You can view your charge points & sessions (both public, as private)
- You are allowed to remotely control your charge point
- You can have full insight into your charged kWh’s and costs
- You can open up your charge point for guest usage and set a kWh tariff
- You can set up automatic reimbursement for charging at home
You can view, edit and control your charge card and charge point at any given time in your own personalized dashboard in your myNewMotion account. And if you have any problems with your charge point, we can also remotely control and reset it for you.
But why should you charge smart?
A regular charge point or household socket won’t even show you the basic information a regular gas pump will give you. A smart charge point will provide you with this information and much more. A smart charge point enables you to keep full control over your charging behaviour and costs.
