Registering Your Powerwall

To complete installation of your Powerwall, you must register it to your Tesla Account and connect it to your home Wi-Fi network.

Getting Started with the Tesla app

To begin registration, download the Tesla app on your phone and sign in with your Tesla Account. If you already own other Tesla vehicle or energy products, register your Powerwall using the same email address.

How to Register Your Powerwall

Open the Tesla app and follow these steps:

  1. Tap the icon in the upper-right corner of the app to open the profile menu.
  2. Tap ‘Add Product’ > ‘Powerwall.’
  1. Follow the prompts to locate and scan your gateway password QR Code.
  1. Choose a name for your Powerwall and enter your home address. We use your address for location-based Powerwall features, including Storm Watch
  1. Accept the request to join your Powerwall's local "TEG-XXX" Wi-Fi network, where "XXX" are the last three alphanumeric characters of your Gateway serial number. Wait a few minutes for your phone to connect to Wi-Fi. 
  1. Follow the prompts to pair your phone to the Powerwall. 
  1. Select your home Wi-Fi network and enter your network password. 
  1. Tap ‘Connect’ to connect your Powerwall to Wi-Fi. For additional information, learn more about connecting your Powerwall to Wi-Fi.

    Once connected to your home Wi-Fi, your Powerwall’s power flow and energy data will begin syncing with the Tesla network.

Note: This process may take up to five minutes.
