Having a generator installed at your Huntsville home or business is a lifesaver if a storm or other event knocks out your electricity. It means you can keep living or working (or both!) just like you still had power. However, what happens when you are away from home? What are you supposed to do if you go out of town and hear that your hometown is out of power? That is where remote monitoring comes into play. Some home and business generators allow for you to keep an eye on what is going on no matter where in the world you are from any smart device you have with you. It could save you a lot of time and hassle when you go home.
What You Can Do with Remote Monitoring
Imagine traveling, and you get the word that your town lost power. That means you will be home in a week or two and have spoiled food, potential floods in your home if your sump pump went out, and maybe even damage to your home because your security system went out. These are all bad scenarios, but they are all possible if you lose power for an extended period of time.
Instead, imagine being able to turn to your smart phone and turn on your installed generator and know that none of these are going to happen. That is what you can get. You can look at your phone, see if your home has power or not, and correct the situation in seconds. All of your previous concerns are gone, and you never even had to change your travel plans.
You Can Also See What Maintenance You Need on Your Device
One of the bigger benefits that comes along with remote monitoring is the fact that you can see a full spectrum diagnosis of the health of your installed generator. It lets you know when there is an issue, plus it also lets you know if any part of your generator needs extra maintenance. All you have to do is download the correct app, connect your generator, and see what is going on. That is about as simple as it gets. Then, next time you need your generator serviced, you can see it.
You can go through and see when you last turned your generator on. This way, you can track how often you run it, and turn it on to make sure everything stays lubricated like the manual suggests. For generators that still use liquid fuel (as opposed to natural or LP gas), you can also track how much you have so you know when to get more ahead of any incoming storms. Plus, if you are trying to run the old fuel out so you can put in new fuel, you can keep track of what fuel level you are at.
You Get a Lot of Peace of Mind with Remote Monitoring
Being able to see that there is a problem at home or at work, and fix it while away, gives you the ability to relax. You can always know what is going on and have a solution at your fingertips. By getting a generator installed that allows for remote monitoring, you have the ability to always stay calm and level headed, knowing you can manage life, no matter what type of electricity situation is thrown at you.
