We’ve talked about a few ways to automate your pool before, but the real height of building your pool “smart” is adding voice control—making it easier to manage than ever before. With a simple command to any Alexa device, you can start your maintenance routine, control lighting scenes, and much more. Here’s what you’ll need to get started and improve your everyday pool experience.

Hayward OmniLogic

If you’re looking for an all-in-one simple solution, our friends over at Hayward have you covered. The OmniLogic system is designed to control every part of your pool and spa from top to bottom. Everything you need will be at your fingertips through the user-friendly interface available on the OmniLogic base unit, your computer, or smartphone. And, of course, the system now supports Alexa voice control too, allowing you to change whatever you need with simple commands.

Other Options

Alternatively, if you’d like to go a different route, you can purchase a number of devices to add smart controls to your pool at your own pace. If you want to control your lighting, adding a smart switch is easy enough. And if you want to manage your pump with your voice, you can pick up an outdoor switch with multi-voltage control like this one. The upside to going this route as opposed to OmniLogic is that you can piece out getting devices as you’d like, but the downside is that you’ll likely end up with a system that requires multiple apps to fully operate.
