HARRISON, NY (September 24, 2019)—URC, a global leader in smart automation and control for residential and commercial applications, launched today a 2-way IP module for Total Control of Pentair’s IntelliTouch Pool and Spa Control System. The module, available today to authorized URC installers via URC’s dealer portal, allows homeowners using any URC Total Control interface to control all Pentair Pool & Spa products that work with Pentair’s IntelliTouch system, including pool pumps, cleaners, heaters, pool lights and water features.

“We are excited to include Pentair pool and spa systems in our portfolio of Total Control modules, as they’re the world leader in innovative and high-performance swimming pool and spa equipment,” commented Lars Granoe, URC’s Vice President of Product Management. “Now URC dealers can easily empower their homeowners using any URC Total Control touch screen, handheld remote, keypad or smartphone/tablet using URC’s Total Control app to set and control the temperature of their pool and/or spa, turn the lights on or off, set and change the brightness and color of the lights, activate their filtration system and pool cleaners, and even turn on or off outdoor waterfall pumps from inside or outside their home.”

To facilitate the connectivity between the two systems, a Pentair i-Link™ Home Automation Protocol Interface Adapter is required. Using the URC Accelerator or TC Flex programming software, authorized dealers can also program macros with device events, status queries and set modes (i.e. such as “Party Mode”, “Romance Mode”, “Sunset Mode”, etc.) for easy one-button activation of multiple operations from a URC Total Control 2.0 controller.
