All backup generators run a weekly test to ensure the system is running properly. Thanks to Quiet-Test, your Protector Series home generator runs its self-test at a lower, quieter RPM, which can be programmed to run weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

Mobile Link is the optional cellular remote monitoring system from Generac that allows you to check your generator’s status from anywhere in the world using your 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, which decreases installation costs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WHEN IT WORKS Crazy getting something out of a box and paying professionals to hook it up and it won't work. Then th repointing finger starts. Ended up being a solenoid. I lost three days of work. It seas ok now and hope I don't have to use it. I want to put a five star but this is odd.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unit has failed multiple times Since installation two weeks ago, the unit has failed several times. First it was a cam sensor then it was fuel solenoid. I'm starting to believe that Generac shipped me a refurbished unit. More importantly, I am concerned that the unit will fail when I need it the most.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Built for the home Generac gen sets have so many features, even can be controlled remotely! This is the second Generac we have owned, and we appreciate the many sizes and that the liquid cooled ones run so quiet. We were able to get the 27 KW to work and it runs all three of the a/c units on the house. When our power went out for three weeks our neighbors were so impressed that three added generators after the shut down was over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the line product The entire experience has been first rate from top to bottom. Ted, from sales, was courteous, thorough and professional; installers very hard working and diligent; and, Jerry, the start up person, was a joy to work with. And Beth Wild was very responsive and a great trouble shooter. I’ve already recommended the team to a neighbor.
