If you’re not using a virtual assistant, you’re one of the few who hasn’t yet embraced the technology. Whether it’s Google’s Home Assistant, Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, or any of the other many options out there, many homeowners are taking advantage of virtual assistant technology to control bits and bobs of their home. This may mean setting lights to turn on when you wake up, controlling your coffee maker at the touch of a button, or keeping your home the perfect temperature at all times just by uttering a voice command into your phone. This kind of automation has the potential to be a valuable tool for pool owners as well. If you’re considering pool automation, read on to find out some major considerations to make beforehand.
How Does Pool Automation Work?
Sure, doing things manually isn’t a big deal most of the time. You flip a few switches, you move some parts around, and bam, you’re done. Consider a scenario where you’re about to hop in bed for the night, though, and realize that you’ve left the pool lights on. What’s next, put on your flip-flops and head outside in the dead of night? Pool automation can be used to automate everything from the pump, heater, lights, water features, and even spa you may have. Automation systems are tricky, but once the pieces are in place, it can change how you use your home forever.
Should I Install a System?
If you’re the kind of person who likes to be on the cutting edge of technology, no matter the cost, automating your pool’s systems may be a good idea. Even if you’re not, this is still a great route for anyone who wants things to be more efficient or has a complex system of pool equipment. Depending on how many bells and whistles you think you really need, prices can vary wildly and so can the difficulty of installation.
Can a System Be Installed Later?
Didn’t go all out for a fully-automated system right off the bat? No worries. You can always add automation elements in later and, unlike other pool features, you can always upgrade. If you’re on a budget and just want to get a pool installed, you may want to worry about pool automation at a later date.
