Our pool installation is moving ahead pretty well. They got the RF receiver installed in the Pro-Logic cabinet today. The PB includes an Aqua Pod remote when you get a Pro-Logic system. I "paired" (Hayward calls it something else, but I think of it as being similar to Bluetooth pairing) the Aqua Pod with the Pro-Logic and played around a bit (mostly with the LED lights in the pool).
I noticed that the Pro-Logic's response to the Aqua Pod is rather slow (whether I am 10 feet from the equipment pad or 75 feet away). Once you press a button, you cannot press another button for a couple of seconds. The way my pool lights work (PAL Treo's), I have to quickly turn the lights off and back on to switch through the various lighting modes. I can switch fast enough at the Pro-Logic panel, but the Aqua Pod just can't turn the lights off and then on fast enough.
I am wondering if the Hayward Wireless Tabletop (or Wall Mount) remotes allow faster commands. Is the Pro-Logic RF receiver the bottleneck or is the Aqua Pod just slow? The Wireless remote for the Pro-Logic PS-8 is about 6 times as expensive as an Aqua Pod. For that kind of money I would expect response comparable to the Pro-Logic panel itself.
I will be calling Hayward with my question, but I am skeptical about getting a straight answer. So, I am hoping someone on TFP has the Pro-Logic Wireless remote and can give me an unbiased answer.
