The Tesla app puts owners in direct communication with their vehicles and Powerwalls anytime, anywhere. With this app, you can:

- Check charging progress in real time and start or stop charging
- Heat or cool your car before driving – even if it's in a garage
- Lock or unlock from afar
- Locate your vehicle with directions or track its movement
- Flash lights or honk the horn to find your vehicle when parked
- Vent or close the panoramic roof
- Summon your vehicle out of your garage or a tight parking space (for vehicles with Autopilot)
- Engage with Powerwall: monitor how much energy is stored from solar, used by your home, or exported to the grid

Note: Powerwall features in this app require Powerwall 2

Powerwall functionality - it’s a starting point

The Anzac Angel

The powerwall 2 functionality is very basic. It’s really the minimum you would expect and nothing that really impresses. I mean it’s fun for the first week but then you feel a little underwhelmed. It falls a long way short of the features of smart gateways/software such as reposit. For example I would like to dictate what hours I draw from the battery...I don’t want to draw during low cost off peak hours, only to have nothing left in high cost peak hours and have to draw from the grid. I would love to be able to top up the battery at night in off peak to use in the morning in a shoulder or peak time period. It would be great if the smart features of other software were incorporated like looking at weather forecasts to see if the battery needed to fill up off the grid in off peak times. Maybe analytics on usage so the powerwall becomes ‘smart’. There is nothing advanced about the current features and it is far from industry leading or innovative on the app side...it’s a start point but you get the feeling they rushed it out with the plan to improve it at a later date. Don’t get me wrong though the actual powerwall is a great unit, with a large capacity at the best price per kw...the software just has to catch up.

Good but basic - needs more features


We’ve had our Powerwall 2 and so far it’s working beyond expectations.

This app is good but I really hope they update. My wish list

Time setting to allow low peak grid rate to top up battery if required so it can be used later in the day.

Display charge percentage on power flow chart- very clumsy to have to switch screens when it would be nice on one page

More data stored as now it just today, yesterday and last week. I’d love a years data.

Allow user to input electricity use age and buy back rates and tarriff times so you can see how much your power bill will be

Allow user to monitor which device is being used by characterising usage graphs eg AC will have its own unique power draw graph to cooker, oven tv etc etc

Why no iPad version

Energy app shows inaccurate values for today and yesterday


This app leaves a lot to be desired. Disappointing given it’s Tesla. Firstly there is no seperate app for energy (powerwall, etc) then values it gives are inaccurate. See for example values it shows for today and yesterday! Now compare them to the weekly values in ‘yesterday’. I have checked and can confirm the weekly values are more realistic. Come on Tesla, surely you can develop proper apps if you can conquer the energy world!
Don’t try support either, they are yet to get back to me after several reminders. Seems nobody cares....
