A changeover switch is specially made to transfer a house (or potentially a business) electricity from the normally used commercial power supply grid to a more local generator when a power outage occurs. These products are also sometimes known as transfer switches and they connect directly to the commercial power supply line, house, and generator. This means that if you as a home or business owner experiences a power outage you can easily switch to a backup generator via the changeover or transfer switch and continue getting power during this time. There are various types of changeover switches with the most common being automatic or manual. If you are using an automatic changeover switch then the power at your home or business will be automatically switched over when an outage occurs. If you are using a manual changeover switch then you must flip the switch yourself to change the power over. Outages of power can occur from things such as natural disasters and if you do not have a backup power source such as a generator and a changeover switch to access this you could be left without power for some time, which as a home or business owner would be very inconvenient.
