We're excited to announce that one of our clients, Sébastien Spangenberger, has developed an integration between our LEKTRI.CO smart charging solution and Jeedom, the popular open-source home automation platform. This integration allows for seamless automation of electric vehicle (EV) charging based on various parameters such as time, weather, and battery levels.
One of the key benefits of this integration is that it takes the guesswork out of EV charging. With Jeedom and LEKTRI.CO working together, you no longer need to worry about forgetting to plug in your car or manually scheduling charging times. Instead, you can set up rules and automations to ensure that your EV is always charged and ready to go when you need it.
For example, let's say you have a daily commute to work and want to ensure that your EV is always fully charged in the morning. With Jeedom and LEKTRI.CO, you can set up a rule that automatically checks your battery level at a specific time in the evening. If your battery level is low, Jeedom can ask you if you're okay to schedule a charge for later that night. Once you confirm, Jeedom can schedule a 5kWh charge at 1 a.m. to ensure that your car is fully charged by morning.
But that's not all. If it's particularly cold outside and you want to make sure your car is warmed up before you leave, Jeedom can even pre-condition your car just before you depart (only if the temperature is below a certain temperature, let's say -5°C), making for a more comfortable and convenient driving experience.
Another benefit of the Jeedom and LEKTRI.CO integration is that it helps you manage your home's electricity usage more efficiently. With the ability to schedule charges for off-peak times, you can take advantage of lower electricity rates and reduce strain on the electrical grid during peak hours. Plus, you can use Jeedom to monitor your home's overall energy usage and identify opportunities to save money and reduce your carbon footprint.
In summary, the integration between Jeedom and LEKTRI.CO offers a powerful solution for automating and optimizing your EV charging experience. Whether you're looking to simplify your daily commute or manage your home's energy usage more efficiently, this integration has you covered. So why not give it a try and see the benefits for yourself?
Thank you, Sébastien for your hard work and determination!
