Automatic Activation

  • Starting December 12th, 2018, Generac will be streamlining the activation process for automatic home standby generators.
  • If you or your customer registers the generator on before connecting the generator to the customer’s WiFi, the generator will be automatically activated as soon as it connects to the WiFi network!
  • You can still activate the generator the traditional way if the customer does not have WiFi, but it’s much faster and easier if you follow the steps below:
  1. Install the generator.
  2. Register the generator at
  3. Connect the generator to the customer’s WiFi network. The generator will automatically activate.

In order to register the generator on, you’ll need the following information:

  1. Customer’s name, email address, street address, and phone number
  2. The generator’s Serial Number
  3. The generator’s MAC Address (also known as “Mobile Link Device Identifier”)
  4. The customer’s SSID (this is their WiFi network name)

How to find the generator’s Serial Number and MAC Address:

  • Open the cover of your generator (1)
  • Look for the labels on the front right (2)
  • The serial number is located at the top of the first label (A)
  • The MAC address is located on the second label (B)

This manual will walk you through the process of connecting the generator to the customer’s WiFi network. You’ll need either a smartphone or a laptop to do this.

This informational pamphlet explains the benefits of using the MobileLink remote monitoring feature, now standard on every Generac residential automatic standby generator.
