    Does anyone use EVE for Tesla? I'm a bit of a tinkerer and found EVE, which allows you to customize the Tesla UI and add apps including home controllers. You need to subscribe either monthly or yearly so I'm wondering what the experience has been so far with anyone who's running it.

    I bought a year's worth of app and was hoping the mail app could connect to my work server. No such luck. I should have only bought a month's worth to see if it would work for me - lesson learned. I didn't find any of the other apps to be useful for me.

    I subscribed on a monthly basis but like @ig_epower I couldn't configure the exchange e-mail feature so I cancelled. In principal its a great idea but in practice its very slow and not really usable.

    I am sure thats more to do with the browser limitations and not neccessarily the EVE build itself.

    It's a great concept and is probably pushing the envelop in terms of what is possible with the browser. But it is a resource hog, and it regularly freezes up the whole center console (!!), so I stopped using it.

    I'm giving it a try as well and also seeing some of the limitations.

    Would be boon to the developer if there were more examples of great dashboards. I'm would guess someone has got an impressive implementation out there...?

    I subscribed to the free version just to test it. Like others, I find it is slow to load, so I never use it.

    I just got an email from Eve that they announced their v2 with integrated home automation. See below. Anyone try this yet? Is if faster? I also emailed Smartthngs Support to see if this is legit:
