    Pool lights added to the controller for the landscape lights?

    We have all our landscape lights on a timer, we just finished building the pool this week and I'm realizing that I want the intellibrites on the timer as well. I'm wondering if they can just be added to the controller for the landscape lights or do we need more hardware

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Are you using any sort of automation controller (such as pentair intellitouch, easytouch, or one of the hayward or jandy products?)

    Pool lights can't normally be included on a landscape light controller that also controls non-pool lights.

    We have a suntouch system - currently the lights are on that but what we have for the landscape lights is 7-midnight and we unplug the timer when we leave (this is a vacation home). We'd like the pool lights to go on at the same time, and then we are thinking of adding the intellibrite controller to control what colors the lights are.

    It is easy to program the SunTouch to have the lights on 7-Midnight.
