My setup is fairly standard with no automation (other than the traditional Intermatic timer). I've thought about replacing the timer with something Smartthings compatible but since I'm adding chlorine by hand, the pump does its thing at night and all is well. I don't see a benefit for it.
However, having many other parts of the house on a Smartthings home automation setup, I thought it would be great to see the pool temperature on my phone. Even better, send me an alert when the pool temp gets higher or lower than certain thresholds.
There are a lot of threads on Reddit, Smarthings, etc about various homebrew creations but nothing commercial. The best idea someone mentioned was using their food saver on a zigbee temperature sensor and just tossing it in to float around.
I'm close to actually trying that but I'm curious if anyone else has tried something better.
