4G LTE Mobile Link Remote Monitoring Accessory
4G LTE Cellular Remote Monitoring
As we wrote about in a previous blog post, Generac home standby generators now come with built-in WiFi functionality, which allows for easy online activation and Mobile Link remote monitoring. This works fine for most installs, but how can we remotely monitor generators in the field that are unable to access to a WiFi network?
Verizon’s 4G LTE network is your best bet. Generac has finally rolled out a brand new accessory (Model #7169, available now) that can be used to remotely monitor generators anywhere there’s a cell signal.
This accessory will only work if your customer has Verizon 4G LTE Coverage at their location.
You can punch your customer’s address into this coverage map to see if they will have enough signal.
A more fool-proof way to check would be to take a Verizon device to the installation location and check to see if you have a 4G signal before installing the generator and/or monitoring device.
