What’s the Whole-Home Backup Solution?

Recently, EcoFlow launched the new Whole-home Backup Solution, a one-stop solution to all your home backup problems. To the greatest extent to help you mitigate the impact of power failure, our whole-home backup solution can make your home in a power failure days can also maintain power supply, not be troubled by power failure, and enjoy the fun of life. These Whole-home backup solutions have enough power to run the normal operation of a home, including all large appliances, electronics, and even air conditioning. You can also connect extra batteries to expand capacity and extend battery life.

Advantages of the Whole-Home Backup Solution over Traditional Power Backup Solutions

The typical gas generator option is probably what most of us consider when considering a home power backup solution, however, this choice may not always be the ideal one. The gas generator emits polluting gases such as CO, Hydrocarbon, and Oxynitride, which have a very high impact on the environment. The high maintenance costs and the space limitation of having to be placed outdoors also make it a poor solution for household power generation. In contrast, EcoFlow whole-home backup solution not only solves the problem of power backup in the event of a power outage but also offers a new generation of consumers the possibility of a pollution-free, noise-free, and easy-to-install electricity solution. Besides, EcoFlow is compatible with solar panels and harnesses free power from the sun.

The EcoFlow Whole-Home Backup Solution can be installed in two ways

EcoFlow Whole-home backup solution provides consumers with the flexibility to choose between installing the system with a Transfer switch/Inlet box or utilizing intelligent power management through a Smart Control Panel. It also works with the interlock kit on the load center if there is no transfer switch installed.

OPTION 1: The flexible way to set up your Whole-Home Backup Solution

EcoFlow Whole-home Backup Solution:

Inlet Box: Inlet Box connects the Transfer Switch and leaves a male socket, with Generator Cord (The male socket of the cord should be the local version, e.g. EU/US/AU/SA), you can connect Portable Power Station to Inlet Box then to the Transfer Switch, to work as Back Up Power

Advantage: The most affordable and straightforward solution for short-term outages.

Whether the Transfer Switch can be used for apartments?

Yes, it can be used not only in a house but also in an apartment. The Transfer Switch can also be used outdoors.

Can I install the Whole-Home Backup Solution by myself?

Installation of the Transfer Switch/ Inlet Box/EcoFlow Smart Home Panel should be done by a licensed electrician or a qualified professional.

If I choose the Option 1 installation method, do I have to purchase an Inlet box?

No, it is not necessary. The electrician can directly connect the zero firewire of the Generator Cord to TS, and connect the AC plug at the other end of the Generator Cord to the AC Outlet of the PPS. Just because many users will have an Inlet Box in their homes, we need to explain.
