The hot and hazy days of summer are long past, but you’re still thinking about…
Cool Pool Tech: Pool Automation
If you manage your life from your smartphone and you’re all for making life easier, pool automation is a natural fit for you. You can control, schedule, and manage everything. From turning on the pool heater, and starting the spa jets to adjusting the pool chemicals, all from anywhere, anytime.
And if you’re not very tech-savvy, pool automation is for you as well. These easy-to-use systems are available with traditional poolside interfaces, indoor control panels, as well as a mobile app and website control. You choose what works best for you. You can also get an automation system with voice control.
What Can You Control with Pool Automation?
You can control pretty much everything associated with your pool. And by hooking these peripherals into your automation system, you can save energy, as well as time and effort. Your system can control one or more of the following, based on what you want.
- Pool Pump
- Pool Heaters
- Pool Lights
- Pool Sanitizers
- Pool Cleaner
When you set up your automated system (or hire a pro), you tell it which devices are connected, when to run them, and at what speed. Your automated system takes care of the rest. You can set up repeating programs as well as one-time-only programs.
Depending on your home and the pool automation system you get, you may also be able to connect your automation system to your security cameras, alarm system, outdoor sound system, outdoor lights, and more.
Examples of Pre-Programmed Profiles
To control everything with the touch of a button, most systems allow you to pre-program certain profiles. These might include:
- Daily and Seasonal Changes
- Vacation Mode
- Spa Night Mode
- Night Swim
- Light and Fountain Show
You can always add a new program, or modify an existing one as your needs and preferences change.
