Week 5:

Your Redback is blackout-ready, here’s how!

For our Smart Battery, Smart Hybrid and Smart Three-Phase Hybrid customers, never be left in the dark again! The Redback backup power feature means you can automatically back up vital appliances in your home to help you keep your essentials running during a power outage or for when the unexpected occurs.

Suitable Devices

Refrigerators and freezers, Fans, TVs and Radios, Computers, Routers and Tablets, Telephones, Low-energy LEDs, Electric Garages and Gates & Security Systems

Unsuitable Devices

Critical medical devices, Air Conditioners and Heaters, Ovens and Cooktops, Home Projectors, Hot Water Heaters, Spas, Saunas and Pool Pumps, Battery Chargers and Power Tools & High-powered Lighting

How to make sure your backup circuit comes on in a power outage

  1. Ensure your installer has wired your backup circuit. If you’re not sure if your backup circuit was wired, get in touch with your installer (you can find their details in your first email from us titled ‘’Welcome to the Redback family!’, or in your Redback app or portal).
  2. Make sure your bypass switch is in the down position (as shown below).

When the bypass switch is in the up position, your backup circuit will not come on in a power outage.

When the bypass switch is in the middle position, there is no power to your system and it may go offline.

When the bypass switch is in the down position, your backup circuit should automatically come on in a power outage.

Ensure your battery lasts during a blackout

It’s important to be aware of your loads when tapping into your battery’s power. Your system will shut down if the total power load is exceeded. Utilise your appliances effectively, and try to run minimal appliances at one time. If you suspect your battery is not charging at any point, get in touch with your installer.

How to ensure your battery is full for an expected blackout

When you know a blackout is coming, it’s great to ensure your battery is full and ready to provide power to your essentials. In these situations, you are able to ‘force-charge’ your battery using power from the grid while it’s still available, to keep in reserve for when the power goes out.

Once the blackout begins, ensure you are using your battery power sparingly.

Look at our Disaster Preparation Guide for more information on force-charging and instructions on preparing your system for an incoming weather event.
