Am i write in thinking that you can only set a delayed start time? You cannot set a charge duration or a charge stop time? If that's the case, that's pretty easy software upgrade I would have thought!

Thanks.

Thanks. I have signed up for that but it's an eyesore UI. I did find the schedule but could only see hrs and mins for start time not end time or duration.

Here is a screenshot of my setup. It goes in order of ID number and not in order you see. I leave at 7:20am each morning and have the last 10 percent thrown in the battery right before I leave. I also set it to have the heat kick on 3 mins before I leave.

This is really helpful - thank you. I just need to charge between 12:30am and 4:30am. So does this look right :)

Yup, That will work. Obviously if you reach your charge limit before 4:30am, it will cut off at the limit set in the car.

Also, you may want to make sure the start time set in the car is set to 12:30am. Technically you could just set 1 rule in teslafi. The cutoff at 4:30am. Your car is probably already set to a start time im assuming

Thats true. Use the car to start and teslafi to stop. So just one entry. Is that it? Do I need to do anything in the car to make teslafi work. I must admint it all seems a bit like magic as I have no idea how it's managing the software!

Nope, nothing else to do except for that 1 Teslafi rule. As long at teslafi is able to talk to your car, it will execute that command at 4:30

Also, if you go to support and then raw data feed in teslafi, you can see what your car is doing every minute. Tomorrow take a look at that feed and scroll down to 4:30am and see what it does

So test this, I've plugged my car in and teslafi just has one paramter which is to start in one hour. So how come my car starts chariging as soon as the cable connects?

Teslafi isn't controlling that, your car is. What time did you plug it in and what time is your cars charging start time?
