    Intellibrite 5g color changing via Intellitouch

    Hello,

    New to the forums... tons of great info in here!

    I recently installed 3 Intellibrite 5g Color led lights (2 in the pool and 1 in the spa). All of the lights are connected to an Intellitouch i9+3, the 2 pool lights are on one relay, and the spa light is on a separate relay. Using the Mobiletouch remote I am able to change the color or color show of the lights... the problem is, when I change the color it changes the color of ALL 3 lights. I put the spa light on it's own circuit so I could change the colors independently (ie: the spa on red and the pool on blue). Both the "Pool Light" and "Spa Light" circuits are configured as "Intellibrite" in the Mobiletouch menu. I can turn the spa and pool lights on and off independently, but managing the colors effects them all.

    Any Intellitouch pros out there that can point me in the right direction? Wasn't sure if this was a limitation of the system, or something simple I'm doing wrong in the setup.

    Thanks!

    -Sean

    Welcome to TFP!

    The default is to sync everything, but you can over-ride that. I believe the Color Set mode is the simplest way to get them to be different colors.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I'm not sure I understand the Color Set button. When I press it, it turned off all the lights, and then the pool and the spa lights did come on with different colors... but how do you specify which colors they turn on to?

    Also, do you know if it's possible (and how) to get the Chlorinator to show up on the Main display screen? Right now I have to go to Menu>Setup>Equipment>Chlorinator. I'd love to have a button on the main screen.

    I believe it is Lights : Configure : pick a light : next/prev color to select the color set color for that light, then color set to set everything to their pre-assigned colors.

    Thanks Jason,

    Yes, what you described works for static colors, but I was pulling my hair out trying to find out how to do the color changing shows for the pool and spa independently. After a call to Pentair tech support, I found out that this is a current limitation of the system and not possible. They are working on a firmware update that will allow control of light shows for each circuit. It will also allow you to change the colors more easily, rather than using the color set button, etc, you could just pick red, blue, etc for each light. Just wanted to pass this along in case anyone else was pondering this.

    Sean, let us know if you hear anything about that firmware update. It'd be nice to get more control over the Intellibrites.

    thanks.
