ELIZABETH, NJ (November 11, 2013)Hayward Pool Products introduced OmniLogic-the simplest, most intuitive controller ever-at the 2013 Int’l Pool | Spa | Patio Expo. The innovative system architecture, paired with the sophisticated look and feel of all user interfaces, marks the first controller of its kind to address the long-standing needs of pool owners and pool builders alike.
According to Hayward’s Senior Product Manager for Automation and Backyard Synergies Greg Fournier, OmniLogic was designed to be simple and intuitive for the pool owner to use, while decreasing the time builders spend ordering, installing, programming, training, and supporting. “In short, we listened to customers, and built the controller that pool-owners will love using, and builders will love installing.”
The sophisticated controller combines the multi-platform, user-friendly interfaces of today’s leading-edge consumer electronics (iPhone, Android) with an intelligent, modular system architecture that makes design, installation and programming easier and more efficient than traditional controllers.
Steve Pendeschi, a pool owner in Fort Worth, TX, has been using OmniLogic for over 2 months. “The ease of use is unbelievable in comparison to my last controller. The way you go through the options is very self-explanatory.” Advancements in usability include:
Intuitive iPhone, Android and Web apps for easy backyard management anytime, from anywhere
Configurable, icon-based touch screen on the base unit provides for easier programming without needing access to a wireless or wired remote
50 configurable favorites icons can control multiple features/functions with a tap of the screen
25 theme functions give each family member the ability to personalize themes for custom ambiance
Enhanced lighting interface makes color or show choices easier to distinguish
A breakthrough innovation in backyard automation, OmniLogic boasts an array of industry firsts.
“This intuitive controller will change the way high-end pools are configured and operated,” said Fournier. “Anything you expect from a pool controller, it is sure to exceed. It will change this industry’s perception of backyard automation.”
