  • Prior to contracting with Electro-Motion, we did our own maintenance, which was very little due to lack of qualified staff and budget concerns. We have four diesel units at our various high schools and none were in great operating condition. Electro-Motion came in and provided us with professional services and brought our generators up to full operational capability. We are also considered emergency shelters due to unforseen natural disasters; and we need our generators to support this type of operation.

    Electro-Motion offers the #1 selling, cellular based generator monitoring system in the country. No IT involvement required.

    "How do I know my generator started when needed?"

    The Gen-Tracker™ system is designed to provide the necessary information that your generator is working as intended. When the generator starts, stops or fails to start when needed (power outage); the monitoring system sends a signal to the data center. The data center processes the signal and updates your web-based log. At the same time it also sends out the appropriate notifications via text message or email to persons set up to receive these messages. You no longer need to physically check to see if your generator is exercising as scheduled, and you will know immediately if your facility has gone to emergency power.

    Three biggest reasons why customers choose Gen-Tracker™

    1. Real time notification of power outages.

    How will you know your facility experiences a power outage during off-hours? With Gen-Tracker™, you receive a text or email alert if utility power is lost and the emergency backup system is activated. Knowing when the outage began enables you to manage the situation appropriately, rather than being surprised to find your generator running when you return to the office Monday morning.

    2. Keeping track of your generator's run time.

    Either you manually check to ensure your generator is working every week, or you can install Gen-Tracker™. Ninety percent of the time a generator problem is identified during weekly/bi-weekly/monthly exercise cycles, and the problem remains unaddressed until you lose power. When a problem exists, you will know within minutes when it fails to exercise properly, and not when there's an emergency.

    3. Automatic Monthly Documentation.

    The first of each month an email will go out summarizing the previous month's history log for that generator. The main signals for customers to look for are: amount of time the generator ran, if there were any utility outages, and if the power to the building was lost for more than 10 seconds.
