From Nest to Google Home, automation is everywhere! A pool automation system allows you to connect your pool’s equipment to one central hub via wifi and control center. The system’s corresponding mobile app then allows you to control those features from your phone. Most automation systems can also connect to Echo or a similar smart device. It is convenience at its finest! 

What Parts of my Pool can I Automate?

Almost any type of equipment, from pumps to lights to heaters, can be controlled wirelessly through an automation system, allowing you to set the mood in your backyard before you get home.

  • Pool pumps- control the flow of water to features or turn your pump on and off
  • Lighting- set the mood from anywhere by controlling the color and intensity of your pool lights. You can even pre-program light shows

  • Hot tubs- turn on the jets via remote
  • Features- turn laminar jets, fountains or waterfalls on or off
