ELAN Adds Cloud-Based Integration with Jandy iAquaLink® RS Controls

CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA, August 20, 2019 – Continuing to expand system configuration possibilities for its dealers, Nortek Security & Control LLC (NSC), a global leader in wireless security, home automation, access control, and health and wellness technology, today announced the release of a new Jandy iAquaLink® Driver for its ELAN® intelligent home control system. 

According to ELAN Technical Project Manager Larry Cramp, the new driver enables seamless cloud-based integration of iAquaLink-connected RS pool and spa control systems with the ELAN platform. 

“Users can now access AquaLink RS pool and spa automation system controls directly from the ELAN interface, with features such as pool and spa valve operation, heater set points, automatic pool cleaners, light features, water features, and more,” Cramp said. 

The new ELAN iAquaLink Driver provides automatic discovery of all of AquaLink’s features and labels to ensure fast and easy integrations. If a pool’s automation is already connected to the web with an iAquaLink antenna, the integrator can use the driver to simply connect ELAN to the iAquaLink cloud service. 

AquaLink RS remains fully in control of the pool and spa equipment, ensuring reliable operation so that cool down delays, freeze protection features, and other safeguards are not affected. This enables the integrator to provide a user-friendly integration without needing in-depth knowledge of how the pool/spa system has been configured.

“Pool owners have been asking for this integration and we are delighted that ELAN will now be offering it to its integrator partners,” says David Goldman, Vice President of Product Marketing at Zodiac Pool Systems — maker of Jandy products and AquaLink pool controls. “The new driver makes it such a simple process that will allow for a greater end-user experience.”
