ELIZABETH, NJ — Pool automation just got a lot more affordable. Hayward® Pool Products, the market leader in swimming pool products, announced the introduction of OnCommand™ -- an entry-level automation system for pool and spa owners who may not have thought they could afford it.

“We saw a real market need for entry-level automation,” says Hayward Automation Product Manager Ray Denkewicz. “That's why we've introduced OnCommand. It brings the luxury of automating pool, spa and other backyard functions to owners who thought that pool automation was unaffordable. After all, pools are made to relax in, not work on – no matter how modest or luxurious they are.”

OnCommand is particularly well suited for the aftermarket and retrofits. It was designed specifically for homeowners who already have or don’t need an electrical subpanel on the pool pad – at a substantial savings over competitive controllers. OnCommand provides a full range of automation features, including the ability to manage energy saving equipment, such as 2-speed and variable speed pumps. Automating tasks with an OnCommand can pay for the unit within one pool season, by saving up to 75 percent on energy costs.

OnCommand features include:

  • Manages both pool, spa and other backyard features automatically or with the push of a button
  • Manages existing salt chlorination systems
  • Pool and spa light dimming relays
  • Intuitive programming, easy-to-read display
  • Automates up to four features, three valves, heater and solar control
  • Automated schedules for off-peak electrical rates
  • Optional remote control
  • Up to 75% energy savings controlling a two- or variable-speed pump
  • Three year limited warranty
