FAQs

Most frequently asked questions and our answers about software updates

When will I receive a software update for my wallbox?

We are continuously working on improving our products and being able to offer you new features.

As soon as a software update is available and you have linked your wallbox with Internet capability to a charging app, you will be notified in your app and be able to directly start the update from there.

For this reason, we recommend you regularly open the app to check whether a current software update is available.

How can I check whether the software on my wallbox is up to date?

If you have a wallbox with Internet capability, you can find the current wallbox software version in your charging app in the wallbox settings in "Charging at home".

How can I obtain information about software updates?

The changelog of our software update on this website and the FAQs provide detailed information about the content of our software updates as well as questions and answers on the subject.

It goes without saying that our customer service will also be happy to personally advise you. Just call us or drop us a line by email.

PS. You can find an overview of service phone numbers and email addresses in the response to the question "Who can I contact if I have any questions?"

What happens if I do not consent to the software update? What are the consequences for me?

It goes without saying that you are at liberty to reject the update. However, this may impair the security as well as functionality of your wallbox. You will then also potentially not be able to use new functions or functionalities may be restricted.

Very important: If you do not agree to an update and a defect occurs, Elli will not be liable for this if the defect is due to the lack of an update.

Once I have rejected an update, can I still decide to install the update at a later point? If so, what do I need to do for that?

If you had previously rejected an update and decide to nevertheless install it at a later point, you can trigger the update at any point in the wallbox settings of your charging app in the "Charging at home" section.

Can I interrupt the update if I have to charge my vehicle at short notice?

The wallbox will always prioritize the update during installation. It will not be possible to charge with the wallbox during this time. However, the software installation usually only takes a few minutes.

How can I tell whether my wallbox is currently installing the update?

You can tell by the first LED on the left of your wallbox changing its lighting or flashing pattern while all other LEDs are off.

1. The wallbox permanently lights up yellow as soon as the file is being downloaded.
2.It will subsequently briefly light up yellow.

3. Your wallbox will then restart. In this process, the left-hand LED flashes blue.

4. After the restart the left-hand LED will flash green.

5. The LED will permanently light up green (normal state) as soon as the update has been installed successfully.

Important: Please do not disconnect the wallbox from the power supply or the Internet while the update is installing. This is absolutely necessary to successfully install the update and prevent any wallbox faults.

What happens if I am charging my vehicle during the installation of the update?

The update will only be installed after having completed the charging process (if the wallbox is online). The charging process will not be interrupted.

How long do I have to install the update?

Once a new update is available, you can trigger its installation yourself at any time in the wallbox settings of your charging app in the "Charging at home" section.

However, please note: If you fail to install the update within the prescribed 14-day period, Elli will subsequently not be liable for any product defects that are caused by a lack of updates.

What happens if it was not possible to successfully install the update?

Don't worry: If it was not possible to install the update in the first attempt, e.g. as a result of an unstable Internet connection, the system will try several times to install the update at a later point. Do not disconnect your wallbox from the power supply or Internet.

It was not possible to successfully install the update. I suspect an unstable Internet connection. What can I do to still successfully install the update?

For this purpose, please initially check your Internet connection and try to optimize it, if at all possible.

In parallel, we will be checking wallboxes with Internet capability that are having issues installing the update in our IT systems and will enable the option to change between LTE, WiFi and Lan on affected wallboxes. If your wallbox is affected, we ask you to also change to a more stable alternative.

Are you unsure about how to change between LTE, WiFi and Lan? We are happy to help you with that. For this purpose, simply check our instructions at the following link:

Based on our current information, we assume that sufficient testing can be performed in the coming weeks enabling us to then eventually deploy the new update.

We will post any more news on our website as soon as it becomes available. There you will also find more detailed information on how to connect your wallbox to a photovoltaic system.
