Security with wifi connected EVSE

Sat Jul 01, 2017 8:21 am

What are the security concerns with a wifi connected charger? Looks like the Juicebox talks to their server.

They will know your charging patterns. In the end, you have to trust the manufacturer or not connect a device at all. After all, they COULD use your Juicebox as a gateway to your whole network if they were so inclined. Of course, your Chromecast, router or net enabled toaster could do the same. You either live in fear or you don't.

Their server talking to the juicebox should be the least of your concerns when your browsing history can now be bought on the open market.
