It would be nice to be able to set the charge options down to the day. In my area, my electricity rates are higher from 3pm to 8pm M-F.
So the preference would be able to set it to go to sleep between 3-8pm M-F and awake (ready to charge) outside of those times and 24 hrs during the weekend.

I also would like to see the addition of this feature.
I am in Phoenix, Arizona. The APS (Arizona Public Service) utility peak-demand hours are 3pm to 8pm on weekdays unless you are "grandfathered" into the EPR6 solar rate (12p to 7pm). Charging an EV during this time just once can cost $100+ in peak-demand charges. EV timers usually solve this problem, but I would like to see the ability to schedule Solar Diversion in openEVSE.
I hope to become a contributor to the firmware development of the WiFi system and implement/test any added features such as this. I am an Electrical Engineer (ASU, B.S.E., 2005) with software development experience.
Now that EV is ramping up, I second this feature request. It will be nice to have the option to enable a schedule very similar to those on thermostats. A schedule where one can specify the Start and End Time by day Ex (to reflect SDGE EV5 rate) select M, Tu, W, Th, Fri - 12AM-6AM, Sat, Sun 12AM-2PM.

A daily schedule is already implemented in the latest firmware, we just need to finish up the web user interface.
