Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wi Fi enabled We Really like the unit and the security of having 24/7 protection against power failure. What sold us on this unit was the WiFi connection. Instead of just passively waiting to see what happens next. Our WiFi connection allows us to monitor performance at anytime

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge peace of mind With hurricane season approaching, we now have peace of mind if we lose our electricity. So far we have had this for one day, so I can's say if it will operate as promised, but so far we are happy with this product. Service and installation was excellent.
