URC Announces Two-Way Total Control® Module for AquaLink® Pool and Spa Environment Management System from Zodiac®
Homeowners can enjoy wireless monitoring and adjustment of temperature, filtration cycles, spa lighting, audio and more from a Total Control Whole-House Automation System
Harrison, N.Y. – April 22, 2014 – URC, manufacturer of the multiple award winning Total Control® and the new ccGEN2 two-way whole-house automation systems, and producer of the Complete Control® series of home theater and entertainment control solutions, today announced the first wireless solution for pool and spa control-a new two-way control module for Zodiac's AquaLink intelligent pool and spa control system. The new module broadens URC's reach into every important home automation category, including security, door locks, lighting, shades, surveillance, climate, power control and A/V.
"Our new two-way automation solution for AquaLink is great news for integrators and pool owners alike," said URC's director of marketing, Cat Toomey. "Folks can set the temperature of their pool or spa, set lighting scenes (for example all on, all off, party mode, etc.), turn on the waterfall, select and adjust audio sources-and much more-with just one touch on a URC remote, keypad, panel, or mobile device."
"Integrators will find customization surprisingly easy and efficient, thanks to our full implementation of AquaLink's features," she continued. "Our system can access the exact customized labeling that has been set up by the pool professional-maintaining consistency and end-user familiarity between the OEM and URC interfaces-so that labels are all the same automatically."
AquaLink was created and is sold by Zodiac Pool Systems, the name behind such popular brands as Zodiac®, Polaris®, Jandy® Pro Series, Nature2®, and Cover-Pools®.
The new AquaLink two-way module is also compatible with ccGEN2 keypads, the RM-2 remote and ccGEN2-iOS app. ccGEN2 products are sold through distributors; the Total Control line is sold via direct URC dealers only.
URC has added approximately 50 new, fully tested and certified integration modules over the past year for Total Control. Adding to these drivers, URC recently announced a new Software Development Kit (SDK) for qualified URC dealers to develop their own two-way modules for Total Control. This SDK is delivered along with comprehensive "how-to" videos and a programming manual.
