after researching for quite some time, I decided to post here. The intermatic device PE653RC/PE953 works with Vera 3 (UI5) and Vera Plus (UI7) from what I read in previous posts here. With that said, I would like to automate a Hot Tub and not a pool. Has anybody successfully automated a Hot Tub using Intermatic or any other device? I am not talking about basic power on/off. I am talking about controlling features like valves, lighting, temperature, etc.
Researching the latest Hot Tub manufacturers and even talking to some of them e.g. Marquis, Colo Spas, etc. they don't certify third party solutions to automate their Spas. Some of them offer WiFi modules which are not useful because they either create their own hot spot and I have to connect to that network to launch their app on my cell phone, or if they are able to join an existing Home WiFi network, they don't offer any open API to integrate with.
Thanks in advance for any advise.
