How to install SmartLink™ WiFi Module on your spa

First things first, you'll need to check that your spa is compatible – it must be a model SV controller produced from 2015 onwards. Then, follow these easy steps:

  1. Find the Perfect Spot: Place your SmartLink™ module where it has the best line of sight to your WiFi router. For spas located in pits or under decking, keep the module above ground and in a weather-protected area.

  2. Orient Correctly: Make sure the module is vertical with the WiFi logo at the top to maintain water protection and signal strength.

  3. Connect to Power: Attach the data cable to the EXP1 socket on your SpaNET SV Series Spa Control.

How to connect SmartLink™ to a smart device

Before you jump into the SmartLink™ app, ensure your router is powered and has a strong signal. Here's what to do:

Setting Up WiFi Access

  1. Know your Network: Have your router's SSID (network name) and password ready. Remember, the V2 module does not support '%' or spaces in passwords.

  2. Check Signal Strength: You'll need a signal strength of -70dB or better for V2 modules and -80dB or better for V3 modules for smooth operation.

Connecting to the SmartLink™ App

Now let's get your spa connected to the SmartLink app:

  1. Download the App: Download the Spanet Smartlink app from the App Store or Google Play on your mobile device.

  2. Create an Account: Open the app and register a user account, verifying your email to proceed.

  3. Pair Your Device: Sign in and tap the '+' button to add your spa. For V3 modules, use Bluetooth to connect, and for V2 modules (on iOS), follow the instructions to connect to the SV WiFi network and proceed with the setup.

  4. Configure WiFi: Choose your home WiFi network within the app, enter the password, and you're almost there!

Final Touches

Name your spa within the app to easily identify it. If everything is entered correctly, your spa will soon appear online in the app.

Voice Control: Talk to Your Spa

For those who fancy a bit of tech-savvy flair, you can link your spa to Google® Assistant or Amazon® Alexa™ for voice commands:

  1. Link Accounts: In the SmartLink app settings, link your Google or Amazon account.

  2. Set a PIN for Google Assistant: Set a 4-digit PIN if you're using Google Assistant.

  3. Enable Skills: For Google, say, Hey Google, talk to my spa pool and follow the prompts. For Amazon, find and enable the My Spa Pool skill in the Alexa app.

  4. Choose Your Spa: Using voice commands, list your spas and select the one you want to control.

And that’s it! You’ve just elevated your spa game with the SmartLink™ module and app. Enjoy the convenience of controlling your spa anywhere, anytime.
