Does one exist?

Neither for Mac OSX or Windows that I know of.

Nice! I'll give it a try!

I wrote one, it's called "CARMA" available in the mac app store.

It looks like CARMA only supports charging status and climate control at this point, is that right?

sahilmalik | 04. februar 2018

Hi EVRider - yes that is right. It's just a v1 at the moment, but as the community gives more feedback, I am looking forward to adding more features. Do let me know if you have any specific feature requests.

EVRider | 04. februar 2018

I don’t have any specific requests, but I would suggest focusing on features that would work better on a computer than a mobile device, such as accessing vehicle data (check out Visible Tesla for example). For me personally, I wouldn’t bother using a macOS app for something that is just as easily handled by one of the mobile apps, but then again I don’t do much with the mobile apps either, so I might not be your target user. Given the current functionality of CARMA, I don’t think you should be charging for it, but that’s just my opinion.

I just purchased this ting for $2.99 on the Apple App Store. It does not work at all. And no way that I can find to contact the developer. Have advised Visa not to pay the $2.99. Just saying.

I recently released a new MacOS app called Valet for Tesla. You can check it out at https://teslamacapp.com or in the Mac App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/valet-for-tesla/id1438609932?mt=12)

I'd like to check the status of my powerwall on my Mac. I'm assuming that's only possible using the mobile app, no?

Tesla app for Mac users was full of issues the app does not support the inbuilt basic functions. The unexpected crashing of the software makes the app unstable. http://motorcycleattorneysca.com/ The app makes the phone slower and drains more charge is the next burden for the users.

does anyone know if this app for mac users also works with the tesla power wall as well.

rlwrw | 07. november 2019

@john. Yes, car, solar, and powerwall all on the same app. Solar and Powerwall apps were ported over to the car app.
Switch back and forth between them.
I do not have a Tesla car yet, so as much as I dig around in the app, I still am unable to find a car in there.

john | 14. november 2019

thanks, i meant for the mac option for the app 'valet for tesla' .it works for the car but not the power wall. i was wondering if anyone knew a mac app that you can control your tesla and the tesla power wall. i am getting rid of my smartphone.

rlwrw | 15. november 2019

Oh... I did not have an iAnything when I installed solar. That forced me to go to the Apple store where I ended up with an iPad Air just to monitor through the app.
I do not believe that solar, powerwall or car settings can be accessed through a basic computer anymore. Tesla made it clear that features previously accessed through the account were being ported to the app, and that access through the account was no longer available.
If I read news from Tesla correctly, the Tesla app on a smart something is the only way to access the features remotely.
