    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.
    Excellent.

    I have now two MEP803A at your disposal should I be chosen for this test phase.

    Thanks for the update.

    Awesome. Excitement grows as I am watching this progress towards release.
    It's not that I have too many generators, it's that I don't have enough room.

    Having installed and used several of the "other 2 wire" systems I am looking forward to this since it has more capability!

    Jiga...

    Thx for the offer. Many members offered to help. Can only provide units to a few for beta testing.
    First beta test unit sent out last week to a S.S. member. Second unit going out this week to another S.S. member.
    Will need to gather results from beta testing and roll in any needed updates before making them available.
    I'll update info as it becomes available.

    Feature request:

    1. scheduled start and shutdown for maintenance, i.e. monthly run for 30 minutes on custom scheduling.
    2. maintenance reminders: oil change, filter change, etc.

    Interesting suggestions. Certainly not hard to incorporate into the software since it's aware of anytime the genset is inactive and run time..

    second'd

    piggybacking off #2, maybe upon install you get to set an hour meter (to match the one on the set)

    1: real nice feature and standard on most ATSs (I know of some generac units that have this on the generator, not the ATS)
    2: icing on the cake feature.
    It's not that I have too many generators, it's that I don't have enough room.
