OUR INSTALLATION PRICES ARE A GUIDE
The prices on our website for an EV charger installation are the minimum cost for any installation, but your final quote will depend on a number of factors including:
- Cable length - how much extra cable is required to connect your charger to the mains.
- Extra equipment - some installations require extra protective equipment such as a Type A RCBO and/or earth rod.
- Complexity - depending on the cable route and other factors, our in-house technicians will assess how much time and labour is required to complete the installation.
Every installation and quote is different, which is why we ask you to complete an Online Site Survey so we can give you an accurate and honest quote for your own home installation.

Ohme Home Pro features
The Ohme Home Pro is designed from-the-ground-up to be a real looker, thanks to its compact size and smart screen. In some dimensions it is slightly larger than the standard Ohme Home, but a much better shape, plus it packs in more hardware too.
Dimensions - H170 x W200 x D100mm
Weight - 4kg
The Ohme Home Pro smart charger uses a built-in 3G/4G mobile signal to connect to the Ohme data centre. This can be much more reliable than the WiFi connections of other EV chargers, especially if your charger will be located relatively far away from your home WiFi router. The data use is also free.
The Ohme Home Pro adds a new colour LCD screen allowing you to control your car charging directly from the main unit as well as from the comfort of the app.
The Ohme Home Pro Charger is capable of charging your vehicle at 7.4kW, which works out around 30 miles of range each hour depending on your vehicle.
The Ohme charger is a tethered charge point, which means its integrated cable is permanently attached. The Ohme Home Pro cable length is five metres as standard with the option to purchase an eight metre version at an extra cost.
The Ohme Home Pro features an in-built PEN fault device, which avoids the need for an earth rod installation at your property. That means it helps save time and cost on the installation compared to the standard Ohme Home which requires an earth rod at additional cost.
The Ohme Home Pro comes pre-wired for dynamic load balancing, which means it will monitor the electrical demand on your property and adjust its own power output to protect the main fuse.
Though many homes do not require this, it's useful to know you can utilise this feature in the future if needed.
The Ohme Home Pro comes with a three year warranty so you can be rest-assured that Ohme's got you covered in the event of something going wrong.
Control from your app
Please note that some features found on the Ohme Home Pro are only available to vehicles made by manufacturers that share their API (Application Programming Interface) information.
Those manufacturers are:
- Land Rover
Features that are only available to the manufacturers above will be marked with an *
By telling the Ohme app which electricity tariff you are on, it knows what the prices are and when the cheapest rates are available. This means it can automatically start and stop charging to help you save money on car charging.
Simply tell the Ohme app how many miles you'd like adding to your vehicle, or what percentage charge you'd like to reach, by which time and let the Ohme do the rest*. It will meet your desired target and charge at the cheapest electricity rates (depending on your energy supplier).
Note: some vehicles are not compatible with this feature. Please check the API compatibility list further up this page.
Plan charging around your off-peak electricity using the scheduling feature. For example, set the charger to charge your vehicle between the hours of 12am and 4am.
Enjoy Intelligent Octopus' super cheap off-peak electricity rate of 7.5p per kWh, even if your electric vehicle is not on Octopus' compatibility list when you choose an Ohme EV charger
Don't want your vehicle to charge above a certain price, such as your peak day rate? Simply set a price cap in the app and the Ohme will not charge your EV unless prices fall below this limit.
See your past charging sessions with details on start and stop time, energy delivered, and estimated cost of charging your electric car.
The Ohme app knows how carbon intensive electricity production is at any given time. If you prefer, the Ohme can charge your vehicle when there is more renewable energy in the grid.
Ohme Home Pro FAQs
There is a 3-year warranty on the product supplied by Ohme. Any issues under warranty should be dealt with directly by Ohme.
No, the Ohme Home Pro is only available for Type 2 vehicles.
Yes. The Ohme Home Pro Charger comes with a five-metre cable as standard with the option to purchase an eight metre cable version at an extra cost. If you're not sure five or eight metres is long enough to reach your vehicle from where the charger will be, take a look at our guide to EV charge point location.
No, the Ohme Home Pro Charger is only available in black currently.
No, the Ohme Home Pro is only available as a 7.4kW unit. Most UK residential properties cannot make use of a 22kW charger anyway and 7.4kW is more than enough for the majority of EV drivers. Find out why in our guide to 22kW three-phase charging.
The Ohme Home Pro is rated at IP54 for water ingress and is designed to work outside in all weathers.
The Ohme Home Pro has its own SIM card to connect to the UK's mobile data network. It doesn't connect directly to your mobile, but your phone is a good indicator as to whether the Ohme will function correctly in your area.
The Ohme uses 3G and 4G across a variety of networks, so it works well in most areas in the UK but it is worth checking what your mobile phone signal is like in the exact location you want the charger. If it's not particularly strong, you may be better off with a charge point that connects to your home WiFi (assuming that is within range).
If you've checked the vehicle API list further up this page and found your vehicle is not listed, then you can still use the Ohme for charging, but some of the smart features and charging options will be limited.
The main difference is the Ohme charger "knows" how much percentage charge an API-compatible vehicle has. This means if you want 80% charge for example, and you return home that day with 30%, the Ohme will automatically add 50% charge. If the next day you return home with 40%, it knows to add 40% and so on.
A vehicle without API compatibility means the Ohme cannot do this and you'll instead have to create a schedule to add the percentage you want. This is very simple if you regularly return home with a similar amount of charge left and your target is the same most days - simply set up a schedule to add the percentage you want to add each day, such as 50%.
The difficulty is if the percentage charge you arrive home with changes - for example, 30% one day, 40% another, or 50% on another day. If you have a schedule set up to add 50% each time, the Ohme will add 50% charge regardless of the percentage you started off with.
Example Day 1: Arrive Home with 30% charge. Ohme adds 50% = 80% charge
Example Day 2: Arrive Home with 40% charge. Ohme adds 50% = 90% charge
Example Day 3: Arrive Home with 50% charge. Ohme adds 50% = 100% charge
The only way around this is to change your schedule manually each time. So if you arrive home with 40% charge and only want 80% the next day, you'll need to adjust your schedule to add 40% instead of 50%.
In short, the Ohme still charges non-API compatible vehicles, but the scheduling is more manual because Ohme's automatic charging features will not work in the same way as a vehicle that is API compatible.

Yes, you can view our Ohme Home Pro product support page right here.
Our engineers will complete the initial app setup on the day of installation. However, if you need to re-add your Ohme Home Pro charger to the accompanying app post-install then you can follow the instructions on our Ohme Home Pro product support page.
If you want a cable permanently attached to your charge point, or a screen with buttons to directly amend charge schedules from the charger itself, then the Ohme Home Pro is the one to go for.
If you'd prefer flexibility with cable length and a more compact-looking charge point, the ePod is the better bet.
We go into more detail on Ohme Home Pro vs Ohme ePod in our Ohme ePod charger review.
While the Ohme app has some great cost-saving features, the cost to charge your EV ultimately boils down to which electricity tariff you have at home.
Switching to an EV friendly energy tariff can save you hundreds of pounds per year on your EV charging. This is because they offer a cheaper price at off-peak times, which is typically overnight.
Find out which electricity tariff could save you the most on car charging costs with our handy EV tariff comparison tool.
There are a few factors to consider here, such as how empty your EV battery is, the max charge rate of your vehicle, and the charging output of the charge point.
The Ohme Home Pro is capable of charging at 7.4kW, which will add approximately 30 miles of range per hour on average, though this isn't guaranteed.
You can find out the potential charging times at home and on the road for your vehicle using our EV database, where you'll find a handy charging times table.
Ohme has issued a statement of compliance for the Home Pro, which can be found here.
Unfortunately, the Ohme charger does not currently offer any solar integration.
What an excellent service. The technician was very competent and explained everything he was doing and kept things clean and tidy. I'd highly recommend this service to anyone. Terry - Warrington
They guide you through the whole process from choosing a charger, a really smart app to determine the installation cost which they stick to and then a really neat and tidy installation. John - Winchester
Many customers will not need any upgrades to their electricity supply before having an EV charger installed. All installers are however required to notify the local Distribution Network Operator (DNO) of any EV charger installations, who will advise you and us if an upgrade to your property’s main fuse is necessary. This depends on your property’s “maximum demand” estimate, (which is submitted by our in-house technicians to your DNO as part of our process), the size of the main fuse or if your property is on a looped supply (connected to your neighbour). Any potential works will be handled by your DNO and they will contact you directly if this is the case.
If you have an EV or plug-in hybrid, or have one on order, then you are ready to get a charger installation quote. Simply choose the electric car charger you like the look of and select "Request a Quote" at the top of this page. Don't worry if you're not 100% sure on the charger - there will be time to swap this before payment if your change your mind.
Every installation is unique, which is why we ask you to complete our remote Online Site Survey. We need to properly assess the work involved in order to give you an accurate and honest quote. Our website prices are meant to be a guide and show the minimum cost for an installation of each particular charger. So, that means the quote we email to you may be different to the price on the website.
Typically this is one to four weeks after payment. The main factors that affect your installation date are your remote site survey completion time and whether your DNO needs to complete any upgrades to your electricity supply before we install your charger. We keep you updated at each stage of the process, but you can help keep things moving by completing your remote site survey quickly.
You can still get an installation from us even if you can’t find your vehicle on our website. Simply “Request a Quote” for the charger you like and tell us which vehicle you have in the quote form. Our EV database is updated regularly but are not meant to be a definitive guide – there are simply too many new EVs and plug-in hybrids being launched for us to keep up!
Smart Home Charge is a nationwide installer, covering England, Scotland and Wales. We have experienced engineers covering all major cities and regions. Find out if we install EV chargers in your area with our location checker.
Yes. Our engineers will complete the initial setup and pairing of the charger app with the charge point itself as this is considered as part of the installation. However, the engineers are not required to demonstrate how the app works or set up any schedules for you. Visit our EV charger support section for useful tips and troubleshooting.
As OZEV-approved installers, we are able to help you apply for the EV Chargepoint Grants supplied by the Government landlords, renters, workplace and more. Our team will assess your eligibility for the grant and work with you to supply the right evidence to the Government in order to claim the grant. Your installation will not be booked until we have all the required documentation to submit your claim to the Government.
However, as an installer Smart Home Charge does not approve or reject your claim and a successful charger installation does not mean your claim was approved. It can take up to three months post installation for confirmation of approval or rejection of your claim from the Government.
