Hi, I just built and installed an OpenEVSE this past weekend. I have been doing some reading on this website and on some of the emoncms forums... I am wanting to set up 2 things with my charger and I'm not sure if it's possible to do these or not.
1. send me an email or text (text would be preferred) at a certain time of the day if the EVSE is not plugged in to the car. This would be a reminder to plug it in before going to bed if it's not plugged in.
2. I am on a flex rate electrical plan where electricity price is set at about 5 PM for the next day. The price changes every hour. I have the EVSE set to start charging every morning at 2AM, but sometime the power is cheaper at 1 AM or 3 AM. It would be really cool if the schedule could change each day based on when the prices are.
Are either of these possible? If so... how would I get started making these work?
