A Home Generator is an electric generator that generates electricity specifically for a house. It is more appropriate for landed properties rather than high rise. Example of the types of homes are: terrace, semi-detached and detached (Bungalow) houses. Usually, the specially designed Home Gensets are able to turn on by itself whenever there is an electricity failure from the Mains Grid.
This is also known as blackouts at home. Whenever this happens, the generator would automatically kick in to provide electricity to your home so that you can go on your usual day to day life without interruption of power. And when power from the Mains Grid comes back, the generator should automatically shut itself and switch the electricity mode back to the grid. If the home generator is designed properly, it should not require human intervention.
