A generator comes in handy amidst any natural disaster or power surge. Outages can lead to damaged appliances and uncomfortable indoor conditions. Without a reliable backup, these events can be an immediate threat to your safety, and a burden on your finances. Getting the most out of your home generator in the coming years requires proper inspection and maintenance. Our Wi-Fi technology is a reliable, easy, and high-tech solution for monitoring your device on the go. Remember, Art has your Home Standby Generators – made for your comfort, protection & convenience.
Perks of Wi-Fi Enabled Home Generators
There are many “perks” to wi-fi enabled home generators, convenience is key.
Checking Your Operating Status Anytime
Accidents happen, often unbeknownst to homeowners. An alarm or technical mishap can unintentionally turn on or shut down your home generator. In the event of an emergency, you may find out that your generator is unable to run for a reason that could have been fixable had you known ahead of time. Staying up to date on your generators operating status ensures that your generator can run when it needs to.
Monitoring Your Fuel Level
We’ve all been there. Just before rush hour or a big family event, we realize that our car needs gas. Just like your car, your generator’s fuel level should be monitored regularly. Homeowners experience natural disasters frequently across the region. An active hurricane season may force you to rely on your generator heavily. Ease your stress by readily monitoring your generator’s fuel level within seconds, anytime, and anywhere.
Up-to-Date Local Weather and Outdoor Conditions
Your home standby generator is likely subjected to the elements. Wi-Fi alerts for local conditions can give you a sense of impending weather or if your generator is in need of an inspection. Flooding, excessive heat, fires, and lightning (although unlikely) can damage or disrupt your generator’s performance. Alerts pertaining to local weather can also give you time to prepare your generator in the event of a natural disaster.
Safely and Appropriately Exercising Your Generator
You must exercise your generator on a regular basis depending on its specifications. Most generators fail to start in an emergency because they aren’t exercised regularly. Batteries and other components of your generator can deteriorate over time. Our Home Generators’ Wi-Fi technology enables you to monitor and safely control your generator’s exercise cycle remotely.
Email, Text, and Push Notifications
Life can get hectic. It’s a fact that your generator isn’t always the first thing on your mind. Staying up to date is vital in ensuring that you are prepared for any emergency. This is why we do it for you. Push notifications alert homeowners of any eyebrow-raising changes in weather, operating status, fuel, and maintenance history. We alert you when something needs your attention.
