My intermatic's auto function timer went out about 3 years ago during a freeze. There's an on/off switch in the line to the timer I have been using to operate the pool. To replace the daily walks I want to spend as little as possible to install a mod if I can away with that instead of replacing the failed unit. My idea is to install a wi-fi smart plug between the on/off switch and the timer such as this or this one. I am handy but I need guidance on making sure power ratings/amps/wattage etc of these devices matches.
Which wifi plug will handle my pump's power requirements or what should I look for?
Max power:2000W(resistance loading)
Working current:MAX 10A
Material:ABS flame retarding polymer
Standard:5 holes standard,China
Wireless IEEE standards:WiFi 2.4GHz b/g/n
Input voltage: AC 90-265V 50/60HZ
Max Power rating: 2200W
WiFi amplify: 15DBM
WiFi standard: 802.11B/G/N
Operating Voltage: AC power input AC110V ~ 240V
Output Power: Maximum output power 3500W
Output current protection action: ≥ 16A
Plug mating cycles: > 5000
Here is my main pump and the rarely used polaris pump
Here is the setup
The second solution I have in mind is to add one of those timers from Lowes, but same idea, just add a plug between the on/off switch and the intermatic. I just don't know the right one, see here.
