Connection to System
Autelis Pool Control interfaces directly to your existing system and does not require any additional interface or protocol adapters. Installation requires connection to the 4-wire equipment bus on your system. This 4-wire bus connects all the keypads and control devices in your system to the main control center. You can connect to the bus either at the control center or at a keypad location. Please refer to the installation manual for your system for more information on connecting keypads and accessory equipment to the bus and be sure to follow all safety procedures described therein. Once you have familiarized yourself with the hardware and turned off the power to the system, follow the diagram on the label on your device to match the labels on the 4-wire connector with the correct bus wires which are designated by color (Green, Yellow, Black, Red).
Connection to Network
Installation requires connection to your network router or switch which supports 10Base-T Ethernet. Connect the built-in ethernet port to your network device using the included cat-5 cable or a standard cat-5 networking cable of your choice. You may also use a wireless bridge or a Powerline network device to provide the network connection. The Pool Control device will obtain an IP address automatically via DHCP.
Connection to Power
No external power adapters are required as the device gets power from the pool panel. When powered on, the green LED on the ethernet port will blink for 5 seconds and then the device will boot normally.
To access the web interface type 'http://poolcontrol' into your browser. This may not work with all routers and network configurations (see below hint). You can also type the IP address of the Pool Control device which can be found in your router interface by matching an IP address from the table with the MAC address printed on the bottom of the device or by using an IP scanner tool to search by MAC address. Log in using the username 'admin' and the default password 'admin'.
Windows Hint: In your network connection properties under TCP/IPv4 properties, click the advanced button. In the DNS tab, select "Append these DNS suffixes (in order)" and click add and enter "." (a single period with no quotes).
