  • Initial Release.

    Hi All,

    I have released a plugin that will let you control your Web enabled Zodiac or Jandy Iaqualink Pool controller.

    The plugin supports status and Control for Iaqualink Panels and Pumps, But should be able to see other devices (I believe you can get Iaqaulink Heatpumps and Pool Cleaners), If you have a supported Heatpump or Pool cleaner please contact me to you can Dump the protocol and i will add control support (And give you a license for the plugin).

    Any questions or issues please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Thanks
    Mat

    Mat_Budden Hi Mat, thanks for this! I just installed and am testing with my iAqualink

    The root device (I think) is showing a "Communication Error" in the device list even though it does appear to be properly communicating with, and controlling, the iAqualink.

    And the "Chlorinator Output" device shows "Pump" not running" even though the pump it running and the Aquapure shows no errors, is detecting flow and is properly chlorinating (the Autelis is correctly picking up the Aquapure status as "OK", as you can see below).

    I have PM'd you the logs and system info. I also have a couple other Aux's setup that your plugin does not pickup (for a floor cleaner I plan to get and for enabling high speed on my pump with one click).

    Please let me know if I can help track any of this down.

    Thanks!

      Hi mda,

      Thanks for the Message and Logs.... I spent a bit of time back tracking, So couple things...

      Firstly one of the devices is causing the "Communication Error", Ultimately if the plugin sees something it doesn't expect in the feed it will skip it and display the error, But will continue to re-try which is why you still get some data, and communication is working... I believe its the Salinity that's causing it, So to test if you can remove that device and see if it works... If so then we know that's it... I will make a change to the plugin so its easier to work out...

      Next up, I went through the logs... The Pool Temp on the plugin will only work while the pump is running... Unfortunately the IAqualink App works that way as well, And i can only get the same info the App gets.... If you see in the message below the pump is status 1 (On) and the pool temp is populated :

      {"status": "Online"},
      {"response": "AQU='70','0B 00 01 02 03 05 06 07 08 0E 0F 1A 01 03 00 03 00 56 00 66 00 4C 00 56 00 00 00'"},
      {"system_type": "0"},
      {"temp_scale": "F"},
      {"spa_temp": ""},
      {"pool_temp": "86"},
      {"air_temp": "76"},
      {"spa_set_point": "102"},
      {"pool_set_point": "86"},
      {"cover_pool": ""},
      {"freeze_protection": "0"},
      {"spa_pump": "0"},
      {"pool_pump": "1"},
      {"spa_heater": "3"},
      {"pool_heater": "3"},
      {"solar_heater": ""},

      {"spa_salinity": ""},
      {"pool_salinity": ""},
      {"orp": ""},
      {"ph": ""}

      However, When the Pump is status 0 (Off) it doesn't have the temp.

      {"status": "Online"},
      {"response": "AQU='70','0A 00 01 02 03 05 06 07 0E 0F 1A 00 03 00 03 00 56 00 66 00 4E 00 00 00'"},
      {"system_type": "0"},
      {"temp_scale": "F"},
      {"spa_temp": ""},
      {"pool_temp": ""},
      {"air_temp": "78"},
      {"spa_set_point": "102"},
      {"pool_set_point": "86"},
      {"cover_pool": ""},
      {"freeze_protection": "0"},
      {"spa_pump": "0"},
      {"pool_pump": "0"},
      {"spa_heater": "3"},
      {"pool_heater": "3"},
      {"solar_heater": ""},

      {"spa_salinity": ""},
      {"pool_salinity": ""},
      {"orp": ""},
      {"ph": ""}

      Unfortunately I am unable to fix that, As its a protocol issue, I believe your Autelis can read it as its communicating locally using the RS485 Bus, Which is also how it gets some other info that I am unable to access.

      As for the Aquapure, I believe this is the same issue, I think the Autelis is hijacking the RS485 info which is not feed into the IAqualink app.... I have had some success and will likely put in a later release at capturing the "Web" Page in the App, but its not stable just yet... This can give you read access to Schedule and the Device screen which gives RPM and what not of devices (I have a Variable Speed pump, so i definitely want that to work.... So it will happen)... But i am not sure i will be able to get all of the info the Autelis can get. I am tossing up writing a plugin for the RS485 protocol..... But it will take a bit more to setup as you will need to get an RS485 Dongle and either a Raspberry PI, or direct connection to the system... I have messed around with this a bit here with my second system on my Spa... But not sure its user friendly enough, But on saying that putting a PI next to your system opens other doors... Like Kodi / Spotify / Spa or Poolside controls and even Lifx control of an RGB strip... So hey maybe i will do it..

      Could you possible get a screenshot of the Device Status Page on the "Web" section of the Iaqualink app with everything going? If some of the text displays there I will enable it in a "Beta" in the next release so you can try that.

      And i can see from the logs you have 8 AUX available, the Plugin only caters for 6 at the moment, I can fix that in the next release.

      Hope some of that helps, and would love to know if removing the salinity device resolves the comms issue.

      Thanks
      Mat
