Product Overview

  • Safely and easily eliminates the need for several extension cords
  • Accepts standard, tandem, GFCI and arc fault breakers
  • May be converted to an automatic home standby transfer switch
Generac’s Home link Upgradeable Manual Transfer Switch is a pre-wired electrical device that’s installed next to your home’s circuit panel. During an outage, it delivers power to hard-wired appliances (such as furnace, well pump and lights) with the push of a button, safely and easily eliminating the need for multiple extension cords. It comes standard with 8 circuits, expandable to 10 circuits. When you’re ready to install an automatic home standby generator, a certified electrician will change out the panel located in the HomeLink with an automatic switch upgrade panel and new faceplate and it’s ready to be connected to a home standby generator (11 kW maximum).
  • Upgradeable so it can later be converted to an automatic home standby transfer switch
  • Power source indicator lights inform you when you have utility or generator power present
  • Powers hard-wired appliances such as your furnace, well pump and lights
  • 8 circuits, expandable to 10 circuits; accepts standard, tandem, GFCI and arc fault breakers
  • Works with generators equipped with GFCI outlets (no switch neutral accessory kit required)
  • Prevents dangerous back-feeding to avoid injuring utility line workers
  • Pre-wired for quick and easy installation

I called Home Depot to cancel the order, so I could order it from someone who might actually ship one to me. I was told that the order cannot be cancelled. The quality is poor, because I have no working switch. The value is poor because I have no working switch for what I paid. The overall rating is poor, because I have no working switch.

Cannot attach conduit, left with a 2" x 6" whole in panel. Generac support has been useless multiple calls, need to return and re-order. May end up with same issue for special HD model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blows out lights bad service When switched on my kitchen lights all blew out. LED cost pretty $250. Called generac service. He looked wire over an it blew another led light, right in front of him. Then said must be a bad bulb. No confidence now because it did just the same thing. Before. Said goodbye paid $120. Now I'm looking for a real repairman. Not someone wanting me to buy bigger. This is a brand new generac 7500 watt and new transfer switch. Grrrrr didn't even pull out a meter. Acted like I didn't have any money. I work for American Airlines. Retirement home. Need back up because of constant outages. Have medical issues with gal that has throat cancer. Grrrrr I want it fixed. Right. It's something simple.

It is designed for either surface or flush mounting. If placed near the main circuit panel the pre-wired whip is more than adequate for easy connection. It functions exactly as advertised. It comes with 7 single breakers and one double breaker. I replaced the double breaker with two singles providing for 8 circuits. Have yet to experience a power outage with it.
