I know this is an old thread but I am interested in doing this to my 2002 Jandy equipment. I'm wondering if the iAqualink is all I need to connect to get it connected to my Galaxy phone / Tab and my wifes iPhone and iPad via an app and my home WiFi? Also, if the Autelus module is required of if any generic RS485 interface will do the trick?
Has anyone tried this?
Is this project dead?
I'm no coder but understand computers since DOS days and am willing to do some testing on it.
Well iaqualink to vera I would say is dead. iaqualink is not playing nice with anyone with their closed API.
So if you want control with VERA you only need the Autelus and the plugin. I bought the iAqualink and I can use my phone app or web browser to control it anywhere but not with vera. If you want both then you need both the iaqualink kit and the Autelus modual. If you want only phone control with VERA I would skip the iaqualink product. Altho I think looks and function will probley be better experience with more options threw the offical app.
I looked in app store for the plug in but did not see it. I even searched for "iAqualink", "Aqua", "link" and simply "i" with no luck so I didn't find the plug in.
Where do I get the autelus device? I only have seen the iAqualink and iAqualink2 devices.. My board is old and I need to look at the model number to see what it is that I need to get. Although it would be nice to have the pool, spa and associated pool lighting controlled in one app via the Vera it isn't a necessity with the exception of being able to schedule Scenes to do other neat coordinated things in the yard and in the pool simultaneously. This is what a "Smart Home" is all about.
All that said, I think I"ll start with the native app and iAqualink if my board is compatible. It uses the RS one touch controller
already right now so I think it is a matter of connecting the iAqualink where that is connected already.
Funny thing, my pool guy said this would cost me $2,000 in parts alone but I don't think that is the case, especially if my existing board is compatible.
