Generac Mobile Link™ is a remote monitoring system that enables users to monitor their generator’s status, receive notifications, and perform diagnostics from anywhere using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. This adds a layer of convenience and peace of mind for homeowners.

Some Generac generators are Wi-Fi-enabled, offering easy connectivity to your home network. This feature allows for remote monitoring and management of your generator through the Generac Mobile Link™ app.

Generac offers load shedding technology that can prioritize which appliances receive power during an outage. This ensures that critical systems like HVAC and refrigeration have priority, preventing overload and optimizing generator performance.

Extended Run Time Options
Generac generators can come equipped with extended run time options. These options allow for longer periods of uninterrupted power during extended outages, offering enhanced comfort and convenience.
