POOL AUTOMATION CONTROL IS NOW WEARABLE WITH THE NEW APPLE WATCH® APP FROM PENTAIR
ScreenLogic® Interface combines with Pentair automation systems to allow users to conveniently control key swimming pool and spa functions from their Apple Watch.
Moorpark, CA – May 31, 2016 – The world’s first wearable swimming pool automation interface makes controlling pool and spa operation simpler and more convenient than ever before. The ScreenLogic Interface for Apple Watch allows users to control IntelliTouch® and EasyTouch® Automation Systems, locally or remotely, via Wi-Fi or cellular.
The new Apple Watch interface is now included with theScreenLogic Connect iOS® app, available free in the Apple® App Store®.
Engineered by Pentair specifically for Apple Watch, the app features a simplified intuitive interface that enables users to easily and conveniently monitor and control water temperature, lighting, fountains, waterfalls, and other pool features.
Users whose pools are equipped with IntelliChem® Water Chemistry Controller can monitor sanitizer levels while wrist-wearable control extends to the IntelliChlor® Salt Chlorine Generator.
"The app takes advantage of Apple Watch customization features to meet the speed and convenience preferences of wrist wearable and pool automation users", said David MacCallum, Senior Product Manager, Automation & Chemical Control Systems at Pentair Aquatic Systems.
“The ScreenLogic interface provides progressive access to pool data, leveraging the unique customization capabilities of the Apple Watch to quickly and simply deliver the desired amount of information and control. Users can customize their watch face with a ScreenLogic “Complication” to display current pool temperature and active heating mode as well as water chemistry information. A swipe upwards on the watch face accesses a pool system “Glance” displaying a summary of multiple conditions. Users can tap on the Complication or Glance to open the app itself and adjust temperature and heat mode or turn lighting, fountains or other pool features on or off.”
“The ScreenLogic app for Apple Watch reflects Pentair’s ongoing drive to give smart pools owners the control they prefer on the newest devices,” MacCallum said. “Like our interfaces for iPhone and iPad, the app for Apple Watch supports expanding pool owner mobility expectations, offering access and control whether they are relaxing beside their pool or in an airport thousands of miles away.”
Users can use the new Apple Watch app to monitor and control multiple swimming pools. In combination with other ScreenLogic interfaces, users can manage pool operation seamlessly and simultaneously across a range of mobile, desktop and laptop devices as well as automation system control panels.
