I have a generator hookup on my house that I can plug a portable generator into. The switchover process is manual,using a lockout in the main panel. I want to get a notification when the main power feed is re-energized at the meter.
I would prefer not to have to install anything into the box that physically connects to the main feed. Is there anything out there that can detect by proximity if there is power in the lines and send a notification to the HE? Or, any ideas on rigging something that uses a hacked up proximity electrical tester?
