Tesla Battery Gateway Plugin

A Plugin for Tesla Battery Gateway - enabling you to see everything that is happening within the Tesla App.

eg.
Grid Usage in Watts
Solar Generation in Watts
Battery Usage in Watts
Home Consumption in Watts

Potential Use Scenarios:
    Informs if Grid Connection lost - so in case of Grid outages can trigger on GridDown run Action Groups - eg. turn off devices.
    Given Watts used/generated/Battery can schedule heavy items usage eg. pool pump based on current battery usage/whether fill or not
    Another set of Solar Data Watts/Generated/Used etc. (Enphase Plugin - also reports this)



Further Documentation to follow - but these pictures should explain

Usage

1. Need Tesla Battery with standard Gateway

2. Set up Static IP Address for this Gateway on the same network as Indigo Server

3. Install Plugin from
https://github.com/Ghawken/TeslaBatteryPlugin/releases/


4. Go to Plugin Config - enter the Gateway IP Address

Click the Check Connection Button

Image


If communicating - Generate Devices button will appear
Click the Generate Devices button

This will create the plugins four devices with a folder called 'Tesla Battery Gateway'

eg.

More to follow.

Re: Tesla Battery Gateway Plugin

Are you going to put it in the Plugin Store? That's where people will be most likely to find it... ;)

Ok; updated and submitted

Changelog Version: 0.1.5:

- Add some images for control pages - including battery variable level of charge image.
- Add kW values
- Add True/False for Grid Usage
- Add True/False for Battery Charging
- Change to plugin store for update
(checks the github releases page and then directs to PluginStore if newer version)

I expect there are more changes to come...
(almost have the app display duplicated - just have to do the energy flow lines, probably need a few more Boolean..)

Re: Tesla Battery Gateway Plugin

Good luck getting one. I placed an order over 6 months ago, and still nothing. Not even a projection of when I will get it. Living in South Florida, and with a grid connected solar system, we need the battery during a storm, otherwise the panels shutdown. I refuse to get a generator, and with the state of the other type of batteries (e.g., marine ), this is the only game in town for now. As all things Tesla, production is their Achilles Heel.

Re: Tesla Battery Gateway Plugin

Interesting.. someone I know in Manchester (UK) ordered one and it was installed just 4 weeks later (back in April). Perhaps they just had some free stock available in the UK at the time. Unfortunately he’s a die-hard windows fan so this plugin won’t be much use to him!
