This product is designed for indoor installation and the enclosure supplied is not waterproof.
If your system wiring is vulnerable to power surges caused by lightning strikes then installing a lightning isolation device is recommended. Damage due to lightning surges is not covered under the product warranty.
The 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 Aqualink® 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 Aqualink® 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 Aqualink® hardware and turned off the power to the system, follow the diagram on the label on the bottom of 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
Connect the included power adapter to the device and plug it into a standard wall outlet. When plugged in, the green LED on the ethernet port will blink for 5 seconds and then the device will boot normally.
