URC has announced a two-way IP module for Total Control of Pentair’s IntelliTouch Pool and Spa Control System. As of yesterday, homeowners with a URC Total Control interface can now manage their IntelliTouch-compatible Pentair Pool and Spa products including pumps, cleaners, heaters, pool lights, and water features. With this new integration, authorized dealers can program macros with device events and create scenes including Party, Romance, and Sunset modes.

“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,” says Lars Granoe, URC’s Vice President of Product Management. “Now URC dealers can easily empower their homeowners using any URC Total Control touchscreen, 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.”

Total Control 2.0 is URC’s premium, whole-home automation and control system with customizable GUIs and robust third-party integration. The system is also not strictly reserved for residential use. Total Control 2.0 is also a preferred system for commercial facilities like bars, restaurants, executive offices, common areas and amenity spaces, and classrooms.

To take advantage of the Total Control/IntelliTouch integration, a Pentair i-Link™ Home Automation Protocol Interface Adapter is required. U.S. URC Total Control dealers can purchase URC Total Control 2.0 and a suite of other compatible products through URC’s dealer-only portal.
