I like this piece because it lets you know when utility power is restored. And boy does it let you know! The thing I didn't like about it was how it mounts. It is intended for a panel that is exposed, not finished into the wall like mine. I mounted it to a metal 3 gang plate and used a pull elbow to get antennae and ground wire into the wall. It works great and helped to complete my generator install.

Easy to install and works great. I did not have room to mount on top of the power panel as suggested due to all the wires, so I mounted mine on a 3/4" PVC LB that I mounted on the side of my power panel at a knockout within easy reach. When activated by a power return it is VERY LOUD and can be heard throughout the house. So loud it almost hurts while getting to it to turn it off. I used to watch for neighbor's lights to come back on, now I know immediately when I can switch back from the generator.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VTHAN10 Reliable and loud as advertised
Connecting device is quite simple. I used zip ties to secure the lead to one of the 2 hot wires coming in from the power company. Sound is plenty loud; I could hear from inside house furthest point to device in garage. Mounted right above power panel. Used wall plate to conceal wiring and double face tape to adhere device to wall plate for "cosmetic appearance". Wish I ordered sooner since I connect my power generator directly to power panel through double breakers.

Unit works great. Wrap around hot leg with electrical tape. This gives a tight fit. Sonalert is loud and I can hear it well at all locations. Added benefit is a magnet is on the back of the unit so you can place it on the box if the box is recessed. Good pricepoint as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheCEN Great solution to power restoration when using a backup generator.
Excellent product to use if you run generator power and want to be notified when street power comes back on service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by inthedark great add on to generator set up
ordered through homedepot.com and had delivered to store .was easy to install i removed the panel and wrapped the antenna around the hot (main wire ) . but be very care full even if the main breaker is switched off the wire you will be wrapping the antenna to is always hot DO NOT attempt it if you are not confident you can do this. BUT overall it was not that hard to install i did use zip ties to secure the antenna to the hot wire . also 9 volt battery is needed and not included. then switch to on and loud alarm goes off .. as far as sound volume it is loud sounds like a loud smoke detector . over all very easy to install and well worth it for letting you know when power has been restored INSTEAD of burning unnecessary fuel from the generator.could actually pay for itself by saving fuel money

When the power is out and a generator is used to power the house it is not clear just when power has been restored. This device is the answer.
