Installing a Tesla ev car charger at home in a garage

Tesla electric vehicle charger installer in Sydney

Safe n Sound Electrical is a qualified and licensed electrician in Sydney that can install EV chargers like the Tesla Wall Connector. The owner of this home in Coogee wanted to have at home EV charging available for his vehicle with an affordable electric charger installation.

This product from Tesla is an efficient and convenient home charging solution that lets you plug your Tesla electric vehicle in overnight while it is parked at your home. It means you can use the vehicle in the morning fully charged. 

Getting a Tesla Wall Connector installed at home has lots of benefits that include;

  • Charging speed – the Wall Connector is compatible with Model S, Model 3, Model X and Model Y and is capable of providing up to 75 km of range per hour of charge, with up to 11kW output, depending on the model.
 
  • Convenience – Wall Connector can adapt to most home electrical systems, with customisable power levels on a range of circuit breakers. This versatility allows installation in most homes in Sydney, apartment blocks or even a car park at work. Our electricians can provide an assessment on what may be suitable for your home.
 
  • Connectivity – Connecting the Wall Connector to a local Wi-Fi network enables it to receive over-the-air firmware updates, remote diagnostics access and usage data tracking capability. Firmware updates will be automatically sent to the Wall Connector to get the best day to day operating experience possible for your vehicle.
 
  • Power Sharing – this is ideal for households that need to charge more than one Tesla at the same time, but may not have enough power for multiple electrical circuits. This functionality allows up to six Wall Connectors to share power from one circuit while still allowing your vehicles to receive a sufficient charge.
 
  • Access Control – charging Access Control gives you full control over which cars are allowed to charge with your Wall Connector. You can restrict charging access directly through the wizard without having to resort to a physical locking device. This is ideal for situations where the charger might be installed in an open car park area or shared garage.
 
  • Indoor/Outdoor Compatible – Wall Connector’s lightweight design allows for versatile, indoor or outdoor mounting either on a wall or a post.

Darren Dewerson - licensed electrician in Sydney

I started in the industry installing security alarms and CCTV camera systems 25 years ago in London. I worked on thousands of sites servicing alarm electrical systems for large building companies, schools & other locations.

When I arrived in Australia I wasn’t allowed to apply for a security licence as I was not a citizen at the time so I decided get my TAFE qualifications and retrain as an electrician which complimented my electrical assistant work in London. I have been working as an electrician in Sydney since 2005.

For just over 40 years I have been involved in all types of electrical installations, upgrades, emergency repairs and set ups.
