Integrate Your Pool Controls With Your Home Automation Systems From The Start.

LUXURY POOLS NEED ADVANCED CONTROL

A luxury pool lasts longer with a quality pool controller. Whether installing a new pool or reconstructing your existing pool & spa, you should consider upgrading your pool & spa design to incorporate smart home capabilities. With network enabled pool & spa controllers like Jandy, you can monitor the system with your smart phone or tablet. Smart pool & spa controllers with smart status monitoring make it easier to take care of pool while you are on the go or at home.

To Integrate Or Not To Integrate…

In home high speed connectivity has removed the assumption that the pool and spa systems will need to be hooked up to home automation systems to function efficiently. Most systems do not require home automation whatsoever to function.

When working with systems that come with an app and are controlled by handheld devices, some home automation professionals have just decided to keep the two systems separate from home automation entirely and encourage homeowners to toggle between the two apps — one for the smart home controls and the other for the pool and waterscape features. In part, this is to preserve all the advanced features of the pool and spa system. Because they use a different language than their smart home counterparts, in many cases, the installed smart home control panel or app can’t control certain pool and spa functions. For instance, the home automation system may not be able to pick up the ability to change light colors or perform certain systems scheduling tasks. This may leave home automation professionals having to program these functions from scratch which can be very time consuming. You simply have much more limited control that way than you do using the apps developed by and for the pool companies for their equipment.

Pool Control And Vacation Homes Are A Perfect Match.

Integration makes sense in many cases. The idea is to be able to do as much as you can from and within one program and one app. If for no other reason than to appeal to his clients’ desire to have the latest and greatest. In the high-end residential world, its frowned upon to have a friend of a client come to a project that we installed and discover that our smart home system is laking pool and spa integration.

While it’s true that both home automation systems and pool automation systems rely more on the Internet, experts such as Peter Sandford prefer to have both systems hard wired to internet as well as have wifi access as a back up. WiFi is not consistent, It’s slower, and it is subject to all kinds of interference, like steel beams in houses, heavy lumber, concrete flooring, steel reinforced walls and glass windows. It’s essential to have hard wiring in a smart home with additional wiring to the smart pool controller to make sure connectivity is stable and uninterrupted.

Thanks to the Internet of things, the on wall pool control panels themselves have become less important. They can now be placed somewhere out of sight, such as the equipment rack room or other inconspicuous locations meant to hide wires, hardware and technology.

CREATE YOUR SMART HOME BUDGET

*The calculated home technology budget range you will receive will includes parts, labor & accessories (Tax not included)
(a round number is OK)
Numerous structures on the property: Dock, Casita, Guest House, Barn, Gate etc. Check all that apply.
Prewire installation calculations assume you would like your home fully wired for ALL home automation technologies shown throughout the budget calculator, including 'future-ready' wiring. Prewire pricing can vary substantially based on what features you would like in your home. The wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring, not for electrical.
Keep in mind that our modern lifestyle and our home's automation technology systems are extremely reliant on a quality network and Wi-Fi system. Most homes are moving towards enterprise-grade hardware and away from the types of network products you could buy in an office supply store or a consumer computer store. We recommend that all homeowners consider the network and Wi-Fi system to be the most important system and installation within the home.
Higher-quality sound or higher-grade architectural finished speakers can range from $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 PER ROOM
Basic background music system pricing ranges from $1,500.00 to $5,000.00 per room including all equipment, labor, and programming.
Range includes video sources such as AppleTV, a Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, and remotely-locating them for best aesthetics. A basic soundbar is included for better audio.
This is called “video distribution” and reduces the amount of audio/video equipment located at each TV location/room.
A surround sound system creates an immersive sound experience, much like a dedicated home theater room, though in a dual-purpose room such as a Family Room, Master Bedroom, etc. If you would like more than one surround system location, click on the "Add Another Surround System" button below
Typically, homeowners want to see the following areas: front of house, front door, driveway / gate, sides of house, and pool. If you are more concerned about security, you may want to add cameras for the perimeter of your property. Good-quality cameras see about 75 feet of distance on average. The high range of the budget estimate includes higher resolution cameras, better night vision, and longer surveillance recording time.
The installation of a lighting control system reduces wall clutter, allows preset lighting scenes at the push of a button, increases security through programming automation, and adds convenience.
Motorized shades add beauty, convenience, address privacy concerns, and can be used to save energy. If desired, provide your best guess on how many windows/shades you want to motorize. The higher-end of the budget range includes higher-end fabrics, large windows, and dual-roller shades (both sheer and privacy shades on one window).
For example, a house music app, an app to operate your TV, an app for lighting automation, an app for locks, an app for cameras, an app to open close garage doors & gates, etc. Or do you want to control the entire house through a single unified app that controls all the automation systems within the home?
Make your home feel larger by balancing the light between indoor and outdoor areas.
