I am currently using the RAPI for my OpenEVSE and am looking at the different states:
EVSE State - 1 Not Connected - 2 Connected - 3 Charging - 4 Error, 254 - sleep, 255 - disabled
I have my charger on Timer mode most of the time which just shows as state 254. However despite being in this state I would still like to know if the Car is connected as I may want to implement some logic to start the charging. However the only way I have found to determine if the car is connected is to actually try to start charging ($F1) but this is not always desirable for me.
Question: How to find if car is connected when charger in state 254 (timer) without starting a charge.
