To set up the Killswitch Payment System with your EV Chargers, you need to follow these 3 simple steps.
If you have questions or need help during the installation or configuration, please reach out to our support team and we'll be happy to assist you.
For Killswitch to control your EV Charger energy flow upon customer payment is processed, you need to install a smart switch and contactor set in the Charger power line.
You can order your smart switch set directly from Killswitch at the Dashboard, using the "Buy smart switch" button.
Once you receive the smart switch, you should ask a certified electrician to install it in the powerline that feeds the EV Charger according to the schema and instructions provided with the hardware. The smart switch set should be installed in your electric switchboard, together with the remaining installation.
For Killswitch to connect to the smart switch, you need to have your smart switch connected to the Internet. We recommend that you use a LAN (wired) connection. However, if that is not possible, you can also connect the smart switch to your WiFi (wireless) network.
After having your switch physically installed and connected to the Internet, you will be able to add your switch to your Killswitch account using the "Configure new switch" button.
Follow the step-by-step wizard until you have the switch available in the "Your switches" area.
To be able to receive payments from Killswitch for the usage of your EV Charger, you will need to create your connected Financial Account.
You can create your connected Financial Account from the "Account settings" area, under the "Financial Account" section.
To configure your switch, use the "edit" button on the switch's card.
In the switch configuration you will be able to specify the usage unit (in minutes, hours or days), the min and max usage duration and the unit price.
Once you have installed and configured your smart switch, you will be able to download the QR code that contains the link to your switch online control page.
You should print the switch QR code with the size that best suits you and post it next to your EV Charger.
By scanning the QR code with their smartphone, your customers and EV Charger users will be able to open the switch control page and choose the charge duration and make the payment required to use the EV Charger.
