Mobile Link is the cellular remote monitoring system from Generac that allows business owners to check the status of their generator from anywhere in the world, using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

Additional Features
Improved stub ups and electrical connection access decrease installation costs. All connections are dual conductor rated, and the implementation of quick connects for the control wires, completely eliminates the need for crimping or lugging.

Improved customer connection access will decrease installation costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Insurance I live in a rural South Louisiana area, and it seemed like we lost power overtime it got cloudy, or threatened rain. Bad weather was a sure power loss, so we decided to buy this generator. While a smaller Kw gen. would have probably sufficed, we have 3 central A/C units, 2 water heaters and all the lighting and electrics that a 3500sq. ft house contains, and to insure that , if we lost power while we were away,, the breaker wouldn't trip and the gen. would be running with no power to the house, worse case scenario. This one will do it, and it wasn't that much more expensive. Since the installation in Aug. 2015, we have only had 1 (ONE) pwr. outage, which lasted about an hour and a half. Almost doesn't seem worth it, but I have no doubt that we will lose power again and the peace of mind was/ is worth every penny. The installer was the owner of the company and in 100+ degree weather, he installed it by himself. All I could do was act as a go-fer! It runs about 15 min. every Wed. @ 1:00pm and hasn't used but 28 gals. of propane, including the one loss of power. Will have my old 17.5Kw. gasoline driven Generac serviced and plan on selling it, in the near future.
