    Easytouch versions

    I was just told by a Pentair tech that there is no difference to a homeowner between an easy touch version 2.01 that came out 2 years ago and the latest 2.19. Is that true? Also I'm going to order ScreenLogic. Is there anything I should be concerned about regarding it's versions.

    Re: Easytouch versions

    I'd believe that. I had my ET installed almost 4 years ago and the design has not changed one single bit. If Pentair is following standard versioning numbering systems, then the differences between a version 2.01 and 2.19 are very much minor changes. Typically speaking, versioning goes like this -

    major.minor[.maintenance[.build]]

    A change in the second decimal place number typically indicates minor changes, such as cleaning up a menu or adding a slightly different sub menu. If there were any changes to the physical hardware, then that would trigger a MAJOR number update. So an ET 3.0 would have different hardware in it than an ET 2.0

    The inside scoop from our resident Pentair Fanboy (he knows who he is!!) is that Pentair is internally developing a new automation system BUT there is currently no scheduled build or release date.

    I have version 2.14. Did not know there was 2.19. Am I totally screwed now? Every time I buy something they come out with something better. Just kidding, my ET does not need any mods that I can think of. Works great, especially with Screenlogic (Matt? I know you see this.)

    Gary,

    I'm pretty sure that Matt has his word-filter set so that any post with the word "ScreenLogic" gets dumped straight into his SPAM folder.

    I'll wait for the next generation automation panel to be released.....then i'll upgrade to ScreenLogic when they put it in the bargain bin with all the $1 VHS cassette tapes of cheesy 80's movies....
