Rolec EV Launches Range of Smart Home Chargers

May 23rd 2019

Rolec EV, one of the UK’s leading EV charge point manufacturers, has announced the launch of a new range of smart EV charging points designed specifically for the home.

This new range of OLEV Government grant approved smart enabled home chargers will be integrated with the EV.Energy cloud based back office and initially launched as part of Rolec’s popular WallPod EV charging portfolio. 

EV HomeSmart will enable the EV driver to control, track and manage the charge point using their mobile phone or any other web enabled device utilising the free EV.Energy app available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. 

Designed to current 18th Edition BS7671 regulations, specifically for domestic use, EV HomeSmart offers industry standard Mode 3 communication, AC and DC fault protection, and fast charging speeds of 3.6kW (16A) or 7.2kW (32A) via a tethered lead or socket connection.

MD of Rolec EV, Kieron Alsop, commented: "The new WallPod EV HomeSmart unit is a welcome addition to our existing EV charging portfolio and follows quickly on from the recently launched Rolec EV SolarCharge range, which is already proving extremely popular with home owners who have, or plan to have, solar panels.

“WallPod EV HomeSmart has been specifically designed to put the EV driver at the heart of the charging experience and is packed with many new and exciting features.”

Key features of EV HomeSmart include:  

Charger communicates with cloud based smart back office via GPRS

EV driver interacts with/operates the charger via a specially designed EV.Energy mobile phone app enabling:

o Stop/start charging

o Programmable charger to charge EV for a time that suits the user

o Boost button for immediate charging

o Charging history available on user’s mobile phone, including:

Nick Woolley, CEO of EV.Energy, commented: “We’re delighted to have entered into a strategic partnership with Rolec EV to provide what we believe is the best smart home charging solution available on the market. 

“Our ambition is to support the EV driver and provide intuitive charging services that the driver can easily and confidently use to manage their EV charging, save money, and reduce the carbon emissions generated from charging their EV.”

Woolley continued: “One of the most exciting features of EV HomeSmart is its smart charging functionality, which connects the EV driver with the greenest and cheapest energy tariffs, and enables them to automatically charge using free, or very low cost, green energy.”
