Killswitch is an universal payment system. This means it is independent from any particular EV charger manufacturer or model, as it uses smart switches to open and close the energy flow to the charger. In other words, Killswitch is compatible with any type or model of EV charging station.
Killswitch powers your EV chargers on and off remotely through a smart switch set that is connected through the Internet to the Killswitch cloud platform.
In a typical Killswitch installation, the charging station power is only turned on upon a successful payment from your customer.
Yes - you will need to have a smart switch set supported by Killswitch connected to your EV charging station. You can order your smart switch sets directly from Killswitch. The smart switch set you need should be selected according to the power characteristics of your EV charger.
No professional services are required. However, we strongly recommend that the installation of the smart switch set in the EV station power line is carried out by an accredited electrician, to avoid the risk of electric shock or equipment damage.
The remaining system configuration can be easily done by you online, using your Killswitch Account dashboard.
You have full control over the usage price of your EV charging station. The price is set per time unit (minute, hour, or day).
We suggest that you set your price within a margin of 30% to 50% above your average energy cost.
For example, if you pay €0,20 per KWh and your EV charger has a capacity of ~7 KWh (32 ampere at 220V), for a total of €1,40 per hour, we suggest that you set your charging price between €1,85 and €2,10 per hour or €0,03 to €0,04 EUR per minute.
You can view a price breakdown in the pricing page.
