What is a Remote Switch for an Inverter?

An inverter remote switch is a small switch that can be placed on the wall of a house, car, RV, or a boat. It eliminates the need to going all the way over to the inverter in order to turn it on and off. It’s fast, easy, and a much safer way to operate the inverter.

How to Find a Remote Control that is Compatible with your Power Inverter?

Most remote controls for power inverters come with a list of compatible devices. In most cases, the remote switch only works with the inverters by the same brands. Although, it’s not a hard and fast rule.

To make picking remote switches easier, we’ve added a list of compatible inverters for most of the remote switches.

How Do I Know if the Remote Switch will Work with My Power Inverter?

As we discussed earlier, remote switches for power inverters come with a list of compatible inverters but they can also work with other inverters.

So, any remote switch will work with my inverter?

Not exactly! It’s more of a gamble. 

The switch may or may not work with your inverter. For instance, Energizer remote switch worked well with Krieger and Black & Decker power inverters of up to 4000 Watt. 

Basically, the remote switch will work if the inverter has an outlet for it.
