When looking to have a controller to manage the pump (on/off/speed), heater , lights... will any controller be able to manage any equipment (different brands).
Example: Pentair easytouch, with a Hayward pump and heater, pentair lighting ....
Also can any pump / heater be controlled?
For instance, Hayward pool pump Tristar VS comes in 2 models (SP3200VSP - stand alone) and (SP3200VSPND - controlled by Hayward Automation).
Would the stand alone be able to be connected to a controller in the future?
