Hi. I recently updated the app to the latest version and I am experiencing some issues with the charge plan. For example today I connected the charger at 20:26 and the charge plan that were created starts at 19:00. This doesn’t happen every time. I’ve tried to restart homey and the app.
This started happening after two things happened:
- I updated my flow with new cards to set the % of desired battery level
- The car software was upgraded
So it is hard for me to conclude which one is at flaw, but it is clear that it’s not working as intended.
I have removed all logic that sets the charge limit %, but the behaviour is unchanged; the car charges to 100%.
I will try to disable all my flows in homey when I get home from work, and just let the car be plugged in with a max level set. This way I’ll verify whether it is the car alone that is the cause of this behaviour or in combo with the otherwise great Homey app
I have multiple flows for charging the car. I have one flow that determines whether to start charging or not, and one flow to execute the start charging. This last one is what you see below:
I am wondering if the issue could be related to the “Set charge limit mode to Max range”?
OK, I’ve found the issue.
I can confirm that it is not the Tesla app nor the car itself that does this. I verified this by disabling all flows in Homey and charging normally. The charging stopped at the given % State of Charge -both at home and at work.
So I reenabled the flows, and the behaviour started again. I verified that when the card “Set charge limit mode to” was set to “Max range”, the charge limit pops up to 100%. Changing this to “Set charge limit mode to Standard” solves the issue and the charge limit stays put.
I guess it makes somewhat sense, but the current documentation on this and other topics makes it a bit hard to fully understand the consequences of the choice I make with various card. Some topics are covered OK, but others are not so much.
I’d be happy to contribute to documenting, if you have a github repo or something @balmli .
@FrodeFalkfjell @leppen do you use the “Set charge limit mode” card?
Nope. And when I disable all flows (or disable the Homey app), the cars starts charging all the time anyway.
I made a test with the Tesla app: I enabled Scheduled charging, set to 00:00. I set the Charge Mode to Off in the Homey app.
=> Charging doesn’t start all the time. It’s quiet, and starts at 00:00. So in my case, it seems Tesla is doing something to trigger the charging, not the Homey app.
No i do not
