Siemens has introduced a Wi-Fi enabled electric vehicle (EV) charging station for homes that can monitor and control usage remotely through a mobile or web app, the company announced.

Using the VersiCharge Smartgrid (SG), EV drivers would have the ability to automatically turn charging on or off, schedule charging when rates are lowest, and view past power consumption data including usage and cost in a graphical form, according to Siemens.

The cloud-based charging station also interacts with utilities, receiving demand response and pricing signals so EV drivers can better shape and shift their charging experience, the company added.

The VersiCharge SG can be installed for indoor or outdoor use through either a plug-in option or hardwire installation. Siemens also offers an accessory pedestal that allows users to install units in locations where a wall mount is not possible.

The VersiCharge SG will be available for purchase later this year, according to Siemens.
