Tesla Control plugin

Post by gglockner »

I'm pleased to announce a preview release of a Tesla Control plugin for Indigo. With this, you can use Indigo to control your car. I'm already using it to schedule heat times when I know I will be driving the car. This is a preview release that only supports Actions; Events will be implemented in the future. For instructions and the download, see https://github.com/gglockner/indigo-teslacontrol. Feedback would be appreciated.

The lower spec model for now, I'm waiting for the Model 3, hopefully I can afford a P100D version of that !
Model S 60D
Deep Blue Metallic Paint, Glass Panoramic Roof, Next Gen Seats, Enhanced Autopilot and Premium Upgrades Pack. Can't wait !! :D

Given all of the recent price increases I feel like I've snagged a bargain, even though it's more than I'd ever dream of spending on a car. Tax incentives are awesome though. 100% write off in the first year (effectively pays for the deposit) and it costs £5 to fill up for 250 miles range.

Give it long enough and I should be able to send it up there on it's own!

There is no API access to release the cable.

There are people who sell cables, like this one: http://www.evchargeking.com/type-2-type ... dkabel-32a that have the button integrated into the cable. For EUR 309, I'd have to think before making that investment.

There is a command to open the charge port. There is no separate command to unlock the charge port, but you can try that.

Super. I have a Model X and can't wait to integrate this into my system.

Question-- does it use the same communications protocols that the other Tesla apps use, so I can invoke these commands from anywhere I can reach my indigo server?

Quick question - can you send the homelink function from indigo to open/close garage doors? That would be awesome [emoji16]

My Enable Valet mode doesn't seem to work.
It disables, but won't enable.

Any help please? Are others getting the same issue?

Is this plug-in still being supported? I installed it and unless I'm missing something, it only has a very limited subset of the api commands available. There are a number of third-party apps for iPhone that do much more, and there are also Alexa apps. The seeming advantage of having the capability in Indigo would be the ability to build more complex actions.

What is the status?

Thanks

Kenny
