What is MySpaPool™?

MySpaPool™ is a handy feature available on both Google® Assistant and Amazon Alexa™ platforms. It gives you the ability to communicate with any spa pool using voice commands, as long as it is fitted with the SmartLink™ or SmartStream™ WiFi module.

Once MySpaPool™ is successfully linked to your Google® or Alexa™ account you can “ask” your spa to perform tasks such as activating features and altering settings. You can also use voice commands to change modes and statuses. It’s like having a personal attendant!


How to connect your SpaNet™ controller to Google® Assistant?

Linking your spa to Google® Assistant is pretty straightforward. To help you do this, you just need to follow the steps below.

This guide assumes that you have already installed and activated Google® Assistant on your phone or that your Google® Home device is online and connected to your home Wifi network.

Step 1: Link your Google® account to SmartLink™ app

To get started, you’ll need to link your SmartLink™ app to your Google® account. Open the SmartLink™ app, then from the temperature dashboard page tap the “Settings” icon in the bottom right corner of your screen. Next, scroll to the bottom of the Settings list and tap the Google® Assistant option. The next screen allows you to select your Google® account to link.

Important: If you have multiple accounts, make sure to select the account that is linked to your Google® Home device(s).

Step 2: Set Google Assistant PIN within SmartLink™ app

To meet new Google® security requirements you must set a pin number for the Google® Assistant voice action to work. From within the SmartLink™ app Settings list once again tap on the Google® Assistant option, and now that your Google® account is logged in, it will enable you to set a four digit pin.

Step 3: Link your Google® Assistant to the MySpaPool™ action

This step is where you link your Google® Assistant account to the MySpaPool™ action. You may start by saying “Hey Google, talk to my spa pool”. A prompt will appear asking your permission to set up MySpaPool™ using your Google® account details. Answer ‘Yes’ to this question. Another prompt will appear to confirm the SpaNet™ Terms of Service. Answer ‘Yes’ to successfully complete the account linking step.

Step 4: Choose the spa to issue commands to

Once the account has been linked, the final step is to choose which spa to issue commands to. Say, “List my spa”, and Google® will then list the name(s) of any spa setup on your SmartLink™ app. Please select the spa number and not the spa name for Google® to recognise your preference. Note: On most installs, you will say “1”.

Start giving commands

Now the setup is complete, you can start giving vocal commands to your spa. For example, you can say, “Hey Google... ask my spa pool... turn pumps on

Change Spas: In the case of owning multiple spas or dual-zone spas, if you want to change the spa the voice control links to, simply issue the “Hey Google… ask my spa pool… list my spa” command again and select a different spa number.
