Generac 6852 30Amp Homelink Manual Transfer Switch 120/240V Single Phase
30Amp HOMELINK™ Pre-Wired Transfer Switch
PROTECT WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU WITH HOMELINK™
Generac’s HomeLink™ Upgradeable Transfer Switch goes beyond what other manual transfer switches can do. It makes upgrading from a portable generator to automatic standby power simple and affordable.
HomeLink™ 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.
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.
A Generac home standby generator automatically backs up essential circuits with this pre-wired transfer switch. It comes standard with 8 circuits, expandable to 10 circuits.
Safe – prevents dangerous back-feeding to avoid injuring utility line workers
Versatile – can be upgraded later for use with a Generac Home Standby generator (11kW maximum)
Power indicator lights – displays when you have utility or generator power present
Powers hard-wired circuits – directly powers hard-wired appliances such as your furnace, well pump and lights
Easy to maintain and expand – interchangeable type circuit breakers make it easy to reconfigure, replace or expand from 8 to 10 circuits in your switch
Pre-wired – for quick and easy installation

I purchased the switch in March 2023 and planned to install it and use it in conjunction with my F150 PowerBoost (7.2Kw ProPower Onboard). After consulting with my electrician, we came up with the list of critical circuits that would be 'backed up' and made a shopping list of parts. Some 10/3 w/ground, Power Inlet Box, 40ft generator cable, a couple of tandem breakers, misc (conduit fittings, wire nuts, etc) Total installation time was about 6 hrs. Run the 10/3 thru existing conduit, mount the Power Inlet box, mount the transfer switch, identify and tag wiring in the attic, disconnect wiring from original breaker panel and connect to transfer switch wiring. Connected the cable from the truck to the power inlet box, turned off the 200 amp breaker in the Main Outdoor panel and flipped over to 'Generator Power' on the Transfer Switch. Tested each critical back-up circuit (fridge, freezer, coffee maker, microwave, satellite TV, window A/C unit, lights and outlets) and everything came on flawlessly. Great product and great service!
