Product Overview

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

Can this be used with a Generac GP 8000E generator?

Asked by Ranman February 18, 2017
1
Answer

As the power output capabilities of Generac's GP8000E portable generator exceed the amperage rating of the HomeLink upgradeable manual transfer switch, we would not recommend attempting to utilize these two items in the same configuration. To ensure you are using the appropriate products for your backup power needs and local codes, we would recommend working with a certified electrician in your local area. For help locating a certified party near you, contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

Electrician installed the unit and everything worked except the rocker switch for switching from utility to generator. Discovered that the warranty only covers the part. If it is a defective part I have to pay for a dealer to come out and pay for the service call and travel. Since all wires and breakers are installed I cannot just return the unit because of a defective switch without paying for removal and reinstallation. The Reliance transfer switch is all mechanical, while the Generac is electro-mechanical. Recommend Reliance for other people who need a switch. The simpler the better.

I ordered on Sunday. As of the following Saturday, it had not even shipped. 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.

The unit is well engineered and built. 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.

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.
