I have a Pentair SWG and know how to control it manually in the equipment pad. However, I don't know if I can control the SWG from my Intellicenter app? When I check the app, I don't see the SWG added in the app. I do appreciate it if you could help me to add it in my app. @Jimrahbe @ajw22

Fan,

I don't have an IntelliCenter, but suspect it is similar to ScreenLogic.. You have to tell it you have a SWCG for the page to show up..

It should be in your set up pages..

Did you SWCG come with the IntelliCenter, or does it have an external SWCG Power Center?? If you have the external Power Center, then you will need to make sure the AC power that goes to the power center is from the Load side of the pump/filter relay and you will have to make a 4 wires cable to connect the Power Center's com port to the IntelliCenter's com port.

Thanks,

Jim R.

Yes, my SWGC came with the IntelliCenter and it is connected to it (please see the photos below). The problem is I don't know how tell it I have a SWGC to show up. Any hint?

See Page 39 in https://www.pentair.com/content/dam...licenter/intellicenter-installation-guide.pdf and start the Setup Wizard.

Work your way down to page 46 - Chemical Controllers: IntelliChem® Controller and IntelliChlor® SCG

IntelliChlor SCG: Tap Yes then Next to configure one IntelliChlor SCG. Tap No for no IntelliChlor SCG
installed.
Body 1 is assigned Pool/Spa for shared equipment or choose pool or spa for single body systems, Body 2
is assigned to Spa for shared equipment systems. This screen displays the body of water assigned to the
device.

@ajw22 Thank you very much for your help. Based on it, I added the SWG in the app.
