Please note that when you connect your charge point to Monta, we become the operator of the charge point. This means that you need to use Monta to control the charging process.

1. Notes

Firmware note:

In order to successfully connect your charge point to Monta, you need to have firmware 1.1.502 or newer. If your charge point has an older firmware version, you need to update it.

In this guide you will learn how to find and update the firmware version of your charge point.

Installation note:
If your charge point has been integrated with another backend, it needs to be reset manually by pressing the reset button for five seconds. The reset button is located inside the charge point, next to the blinking red LED light.

Now you need to add and connect your charge point to your Monta account.

You can do this through either Monta Charge or Monta Hub.

We also suggest resetting the charge point by manually by pressing the reset button for five seconds. The reset button is located inside the charge point, next to the blinking red LED light.

After you have reset the charge point, go over the process in the EVSE Mesh app again.
