    I am also interested pending price. Any type of audible alarm through the control unit? Will my phone alarm if the parameters are not in specifications on the genset?

    Also willing to test on my 803a.

    If you want beta tests I'd put one on an 803a as well.

    I know this is a little off topic. Can anyone help me with the correct battery for the 803 genset?
    ‘Also I’m interested in this device as well. Thanks in advance!

    The OEM spec is Optima Red Top 34/78... but with that said, I typically use Group 51R in both my 802s and 803s. They are a smaller footprint, but have the same cranking power (so they are easier to get in and out). Plus they are a little bit less expensive.

    PCB and firmware updated to support 2 wire remote start command from battery charge controller or other device commanding the genset to start (like other AutoStart option available).
    Basic relay or switch closure to tell genset to start and produce power. Open relay or switch contact to tell genset to shut down.
    A work in progress! Very close to Beta testing. Will be in touch with a few S.S. members for beta testing.

    <-- Hard not to contain myself. TY for the progress report.
    It's not that I have too many generators, it's that I don't have enough room.

    I am also interested. After starting mine in the rain this morning a remote start would be a welcome addition.

    Update... Yes I've been busy working this effort over the past few weeks.

    Testing and improvements almost complete on the Beta Test version. New PCB being fab'd for Beta Test version and in fab as I write this.
    Will be reaching out to some of you who you were kind enough to volunteer to be Beta testers. Many thanks for all who volunteered!
    Can't ship them to all who volunteered. You'll be contacted directly if you've been selected.
    Currently the price point is looking to be about ~ $330 per unit including the WIFI start feature, parameter monitoring feature, 2 wire remote start feature, shipping, Conrol Transfer capability, 2 wire remote start, and cool down timer for the finalized product.

    Some features will be able to be customized based on target application when mature product is ordered such as warm up time, contactor closure time and cool down time.
    This price is vs the "other" 2 wire remote start for $470 with much much fewer features.

    A peek at the systems capabilities....
    Features include:
    Remote genset Start/Stop via WIFI (such as a cell phone or Laptop)
    300 foot plus wireless communication range
    Password protected communications
    Visual display of all engine and generator operating parameters on remote WIFI device:
    o Ambient Temperature
    o Battery Voltage
    o AC Voltage
    o AC Output Frequency
    o %Load
    o Fuel Level
    o Coolant Temperature
    o Oil Pressure
    Remotely Enable and Disable the Auxiliary Fuel Pump
    Two wire remote start/stop via contact closure
    View genset operating parameters if manually started.
    View genset operating parameters if started via 2 Wire Remote Start.
    Transfer from WIFI control to Manual control
    Transfer from Manual control to WIF control
    Automatic 30 second PreHeat below 40 degrees F
    Generator and Engine Operating Parameters that are nearing extremes are automatically highlighted in RED text on remote WIFI device to indicate a possible issue.
    Low Battery Voltage
    Output Frequency out of range
    %Load nearing maximum
    Low Fuel
    High Coolant Temperature
    Low Oil Pressure

    Additional features
    2 wire start warm up period and 5 minute cool down timer.
    Antenna and connector are IP65 rated for water resistance.
    Retains full manual control of the genset.
    2 wire remote Start & Stop of the genset.
    Automatic shutdown due to low oil pressure or engine stall.
    Alerts if 2 wire remote start fails and corrective actions.
    Aborts WIFI remote start if genset fails to start.
    Conformally coated to seal out moisture.
    Firmware upgradable should new features or enhancements become available.
