Great job guys my amazon echo does every I ask her. After linking it to my pool in the Echo skills it is great. Two questions, Do I have to name the pool in the pentairpoolchat.com? I would rather just leave it blank. It gives me an error. Is there any way around it and when I ask what my intellichlor level is she responds with zero ppm, when actually its 3300. Other than that it responds to everything great. Kudos to you and your team for blazing the trail in the pool industry at this level.

If you are having issues with the intellichlor not providing the correct salt ppm readings, this could be through the Pentair automation system, in which provides that information, and/or can be caused by water chemistry issues, in order to assist you better please contact one of our Technical Support agents at 1-800-831-7133 for further assistance with your intellichlor.

my screen logic on my phone shows intellichlor at 3300 ppm but Alexa responds at zero ppm. I think its a amazon Alexa problem. not screen logic. I believe the 3300 is correct. Echo also doesn't recognize I have a heat pump or solar. It responds with " My pool has no circuit named heater.

Hi Bob, please send me a private message with your Pentair: xx-xx-xx name and password if you have one. I'll take a look at this since it should be reporting your IntelliChlor salt ppm correctly.

I tried it today and amazon echo replies with the correct 3300 ppm. This is working good. I just have to find out now about my heater. Echo does not see I have a heat pump connected.

I was so excited yesterday to learn of the new Echo skill for Pentair. So far I love it. Great job! So far I have only been able to use it to turn on/off circuits. I have two things that I can't figure out how to do: (1) control lights (color, show, etc), and (2) turn on the heater or change the spa temperature. Is it possible to do either of these things? If not, please add that to your feature requests. Thanks!

Hi Ed,
I'm glad you are enjoying it. We view the ScreenLogic Echo skill as an evolving sort of thing. That is, we didn't throw the entire kitchen sink of features into the skill to begin with. We started with the basics and we will evolve it over time. We are looking at heat integration next. For example, "Alexa, ask Pentair to turn on my spa and heat it to 102 degrees"

Pool lighting can work for IntelliTouch users using a macro under a feature circuit assignment. For example, I have my 3 IntelliBrite 5g pool lights and 1 IntelliBrite 5g spa light along with my 17 IntelliBrite color landscape lights all tied together under a macro feature circuit called "Pool Lights" so I can say "Alexa, ask Pentair to turn on/off my Pool Lights". You can see a list of things that the ScreenLogic Echo skill is capable of in the Alexa app on your phone. Go to the ScreenLogic skill and expand the description. Keep the ideas coming!

Alexa suddenly not recognizing certain circuits. This is a drop down circuit name that has worked for over a month and stopped.
