What is SmartLink?

SmartLink™ is a free app from SpaNet™ that acts as a wireless remote control for your spa. It provides exactly the same control ability that you would get from standing in front of the spa keypad itself.

SmartLink™ works with Wi-Fi hardware module SmartLink™ or SmartStream™ and the spa’s SV controller to ensure your spa settings can be accessed as long as you’re connected to Wi-Fi.

Please note: The SmartLink™ App was formerly called the "SpaLink App". SpaLink has been replaced by the new, improved SmartLink™ App.

Should I download SmartLink™ for my spa?

Having complete remote control of your spa allows you to go about your daily life with the assurance that checking on your spa, resolving issues or undertaking standard maintenance is always possible.

SmartLink™ allows full access to your spa’s control settings. More options means greater convenience and that’s why SmartLink™ could be the best mobile app remote that you should consider for your spa.

In comparison, the settings you can remotely control and monitor through the Vortex App™ are limited to lights, temperature, jets and holiday mode.

If the thought of controlling your spa from a location other than the keypad doesn’t appeal to you, you’re not away from your home and spa for extended periods or you don’t have a Wi-Fi home network, downloading the SmartLink™ app may not be a top priority option.

Important notice: Vortex App support ceased on March 12, 2024; it may stop functioning and has been removed from app stores. Spa World advises switching to SpaNet™ SmartLink app – see links below to download the SmartLink app.
