Q: Jim,

What is the range on the 5928 monitor? Does it constantly let you know the status?

by Greg from California on December 01, 2011

A: The range on the monitor is 300 feet unobstructed. The lights on the monitor react the same as the 3 lights on the side of the generator. So, when the green light is on, the generator is operating normally and on constantly when running. The yellow light alerts to standard maintenance. The red light indicates a trouble call or issue with the generator and a Generac service technician should be contacted to inspect the generator as soon as possible.

Q: I just replaced the battery of the 5928 nexus remote monitor basic. How do i set it to communicate with the gen set? I lost the manual.

by Mike Gonzalez from Pennsylvania on April 13, 2011

Very Disappointed In The Generac Nexus Wireless Monitor
We installed a Generac 20kw generator in November, 2012 and have been very pleased with the unit. Already, there have been two power outages and the generator performed just as we hoped. However, the Generac Nexus Wireless Monitor (#5928) has been a dismal failure. The unit worked for approximately 6 weeks and then quit working. We tried changing batteries, checking connections, and "pairing" the unit again. Nothing worked so an authorized Generac service person came and could... more

Unreliable
Linked generator & wireless monitor together & it was placed less than 20' from each other & seams to have lost it's link with each other. This was the case more than 3 times. I am a little tired of getting called by customer & having to return to job multiple times. Big loss of time & money, but worse, it makes us look bad because of our use of inferior products. Would not recommend this product to anyone. This is not the first time with the same issues.
Cons: Unreliable

Kenneth,
These monitors have a 180 day warranty from Generac. You may want to have your customer contact Generac @ (888) 436-3722 x5381 to find a local servicing dealer that can diagnose the problem.

5928 - Generac Nexus Tm Wireless Monitor
We recently installed a Generac Generator and purchased the 5928 monitor as well. The customer had complained that the green light had fadded to a point that it is no longer lit.

The installation is complete. We have had only one small outage and it performed as expected.

I'm satisfied.

The generator was easy to install. All though the case of the 20 kW could be 2" longer, it was tight getting the conductors to the breaker. Should provide 2 knock outs, one for the feeders and one for the control conductors. Other than that, it was a piece of cake to install. The generator tests itself once a week. Did fine operating under load. Seems we are ready for the next power outage.

Always One Rotten Apple In The Basket
Over a year ago I had a very elaborate and very expensive whole house generater installed. The system was made even more expensive because there are no gas lines or propane set ups on this street so a propane tank and lines had to be inatalled. I had to have a whole house, self starting system because I have very serious heart and lung conditions and must use oxygen and other devices 24/7.

My wonderful and very competent electrician recommended Generac for the generator and he also... more

Works Well With Unit Bought
This unit works well for us since we both work from home and have mounted the monitor on the frig so it is easy to see. So far so good. Works well.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again
