Volkswagen Carnet - An home assistant plugin to add integration with your car

buy me a coffee

Description

This platform plugin allows you to see some information from volkswagen carnet related to your car that has a valid carnet subscription.

It also allows you to trigger some functions like start climatisation if your car supports that.

Remote engine heating is supported for combustion engine vehicles that use the carnet portal together with a provided S-PIN. Not available for all car models.

Note: Some features included in Volkswagen WeConnect 2019 and newer are not fully tested. This custom component should work with any models such as Golf/Passat 8.5/Tiguan etc. But please bear with me and report any fault or error as an issue. The current release (2020-06-13) has been tested with a Passat GTE MY2017 and a Passat GTE MY2020 with full functionality. Users report success with the e-Up! 2020.

Having issues with this custom component?

Please, before posting an issue make sure that VW´s WeConnect service works for you via a normal web browser. Not only the login part but also make sure that the VW WeConnect service interacts with the car proper, including updating of all sensors and location. If there are problems with the VW WeConnect service this component will not work either. This custom component is only as good as the VW WeConnect service.

Installation

Install with HACS (recommended)

Do you you have HACS installed? Just search for Volkswagen We Connect and install it direct from HACS. HACS will keep track of updates and you can easly upgrade volkswagencarnet to latest version.

Install manually

Make sure you have an account on volkswagen carnet.

Clone or copy the repository and copy the folder 'homeassistant-volkswagencarnet/custom_component/volkswagencarnet' into '/custom_components'

Configuration

  • Restart Home Assistant
  • Add and configure the component via the UI: Configuration > Integrations > search for "Volkswagen We Connect" and follow the wizard to configure
