Frequently Asked Questions

What EV chargers models do you support?

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.

How does Killswitch connect and disconnect the EV charging stations?

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.

Do I need to buy any hardware to use Killswitch?

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.

Do I need any professional services to install and use Killswitch?

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.

How much does Killswitch cost?

Killswitch doesn’t charge any subscription or up-front commitments. We charge a small transaction fee for each payment processed through our platform, just like any other online payment provider. See the pricig page for more details.

Who decides the EV charger usage price?

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.

How will I receive the payments charged through Killswitch?

Once you set up Killswitch and enable automatic billing, you will receive the value of all payments processed directly to your bank account on a daily or weekly basis.

Can Killswitch also be used without payments?

Yes - you can enable or disable billing for each of your smart switches within the Killswitch configuration. In other words, you can use Killswitch to control the usage of your devices through a QR code without any payment.

Does Killswitch only work with EV stations or can it be used with other devices?

Killswitch can also be used with other electrical devices and electrical installations, since it controls the energy flow to the device(s) using a smart switch set connected to the device’s power line.
