Known limitations

  • The WiFi Module is a direct connection to the control panel of the spa. Certain combinations of settings are not possible due to limitations of the spa.
  • Turning on certain pumps, depending on the spa configuration, may cause other pumps to come online as well.
  • The spa WiFi Module will need to be configured initially by the phone app to authenticate and get an IP on your network.
  • The WiFi Module will automatically disconnect from Home Assistant periodically, and then be automatically reconnected. The disconnect is built-in to the hardware.
