We are in the thick of our pool build right now (gunite is in, still wrangling with finish - likely going with Wet Edge, most likely a Luna Quartz line - it's killing me, we could actually get Satin Matrix for I think the same price, but my wife just does not like the texture and look of it).
Wondering if any sort of automation system is worth it for us. Our builder says she wouldn't bother, we don't have many complicated features, no spa, just a few bubblers, although we do have a heater. I'm thinking it would be wonderful to be able to control the heater remotely (i.e. via smartphone), that way we could turn it on or off when we're not around (we travel quite a bit). Also like the idea of controlling the light via an automated system (although I suppose that could be done with a simple timer).
Would be most appreciative for any thoughts or opinions on our situation. Thanks much in advance! (And if I left out any pertinent details, please ask.)
