    Screenlogic 2 - Why so expensive?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm relatively new to pool ownership and am looking to automate my Pentair system. Have been advised that I need Screenlogic2 (#520500) but it kills me that it's $350++. Other than the massive markup, any ideas on why such a simple device is so expensive? Relatively speaking, I can buy a laptop or iPad for a touch more than that!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    The price is what it is because people will pay it for the "high-end" capability.

    Personally I see no need to have wireless control of my pool. Seems easy enough to me to walk over the the equipment and either turn the valves I want or push the buttons on the automation to do what I want.

    BTW, there is a 3rd party system that may do what you want. "Autelis" or something like that. Try searching the forum for Pentair automation or something.

    Because the Screenlogic 2 is worth it.

    I have both the Screenlogic 2 and the Autelis product
    Easytouch, Intelliflo, Intellichem, Acid tank with pump, Intellichlor and Autelis network interface.

    Jerryt,

    Why do you feel Screenlogic 2 is better than Autelis?

    I was leaning towards Autelis because it can be integrated with my home automation system +$100 cheaper.

    The Screenlogic2's remote access of the pool, and the quality of the web or computer interface screens.
    Easytouch, Intelliflo, Intellichem, Acid tank with pump, Intellichlor and Autelis network interface.
