Great Product For Honda Inverter!!!
Very well thought out & excellent companion to Honda 3000i inverter generator. Allows a number of critical circuits to be supported by a relatively small inverter generator. Very easy to install and configure.

Exactly What We Hoped For
I purchased this transfer switch along with a Honda EU3000is generator. Finally got to use it for an actual power outage and it worked as expected. Wheeled out the generator, started it up, ran the cord to the transfer switch and in a few seconds the 6 powered circuits in my house were up. We can have a smaller generator which is very quiet and still power all the necessities (refrigerator, freezer, furnace fan, garage door opener, lights) with out having to worry about overloading the... more

"Called twice before purchasing and quickly got to speak to a real person who seemed knowledgeable. The shipper ended up having my street # wrong, but I corrected that when I talked to them and there wasn't an issue with delivery."

Perfect With The Honda Eu300is Generator
I have oil heated hot water and home heat, so the idea of running my home indefinitely on the Honda inverter generator is completely enabled by this APC device. I have wired the APC panel in, tested the set up in simulated power out conditions and found that:

I have heat, hot water, microwave, refrigeration, computers and most of the lights in my house with this device. I have not yet experienced an actual outage with this set up, but we get one or two day+ power failures a year and winter... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Unique - No One Else Makes A Similar Device
Cons: Want A 10 Circuit Option For The 120v Unit

Gfci Breakers
First off, I love the APC transfer switch. Before you purchase the transfer switch, verify that the circuits to be used are not GFCI breakers in the main panel. GFCI breakers are not compatible with this transfer switch.

Bad Transfer Switch, Great Customer Service
I ordered my APC UTS6H and received it within 4 days with no visible damage unfortunately after installing it it did not work. I called APC customer service and it was determined to be a faulty unit. APC shipped another one with 2-day shipping no questions asked. The unit I received from EGD was manufactured in 2009? The one I received from APC was manufactured in 2013.

I am very happy with this unit and would highly recommend to anyone looking to use a 2000 watt inverter type generator. I... more

False Advertising!
Picture does not reflect what you get!!!

If you're expecting to get this device as it is shown in the picture, prepare to be SORELY disappointed.

The unit I got has this big old ugly Generator Connector (L5-30) in the front panel. Which is stupid because this unit needs to be mounted INSIDE your house- it is not intended as an outside device. And since it would be foolish to run a generator inside your house, it makes no sense to put a generator inlet plug on the front of this unit. Now... more

John,
In order for you to utilize an outdoor inlet box you will need the following kit from APC.

APC Universal Transfer Switch Hardwire Kit (30-Amp L5-30) for Hard Wired Inlet box

This kit is listed under the accessories tab for the transfer switch and is required if you plan on using an outdoor inlet box. Many times these are mounted inside a garage and there is no need to have an inlet box and you would use a longer power cord from the generator.
