If it’s covered should be ok but they are for indoor use.If I automated my Dolphin I'd need to have the plug outside, connected to a GFI outlet. Would that be safe? I also wonder if my WiFi signal would reach.
Once in automation mode just unplug it and plug it back in. Sometimes you have to do it twice.Looks like the folks on this thread that got the automation to work all had Pentair Warrior SEs. I have a Dolphin S200, which I understand is very similar. How would I test that my S200 has the automation capability, without having a Smart Plug? Is there a way test without having the plug?
Thanks Mark. Do you mean the robot should start up after a few seconds? And how long will it run?Once in automation mode just unplug it and plug it back in. Sometimes you have to do it twice.
When you plug it back in it should light up and start after a few seconds
Cool, I turned mine cutt off at 1:45 just to be sure.I followed @setsailsoon's instructions and it worked! My S200 is now running in the pool. I tested unplugging the control box and it turned the robot off (obviously) and the plugged it back in and the robot started again, confirming automation mode.
Curious to see what happens after two hours. If the robot stops, do I just need to unplug and plug back in to start again tomorrow?
I think so, I think Chris lets his turn off after 2 hours and restarts when he wants..That's what I'm thinking my smart plug will do for me. What I'm wondering is whether I'm limited to a 2 hour runtime each time it starts (because of the Dolphin's logic) or whether it will run until the smart plug turns it off.
Just to clarify when you push the timer button is the unit off? Is so have you tried longer like 20 seconds?Hi I heard about this from Mark in another thread, I read and have tried to get my Dolphin Active 30i to go into "Automation Mode" but I can not make it work. My unit will be 3 or 4 years old, I think 4 but I need to go back and look to be sure. I am curious if any Active 30i has been able to go into "Automation Mode" and if so how old is it.
Here is what I did:
1) the robot was plugged in but not turned on all lights were off
2) I unplugged power supply from the wall for 1 minute
3) I plugged back in
4) I pushed and held the the Timer button (button under 3 LED lights) for 10 seconds nothing happened, no flashing lights or lights at all
5) I unplugged the robot from the wall outlet again and waited 1 min.
6) I plugged back into wall outlet
7) pressed and held the Timer button again for 10 sec., No lights came on or flashed
8) I unplugged the robot from the outlet and waited 2 min.
9) I plugged it back in and nothing happened, I waited 2 min., still nothing happened
Did I do the procedure correctly?
Also you should have to unplug as long as the unit is offJust to clarify when you push the timer button is the unit off? Is so have you tried longer like 20 seconds?
Last since the buttons aren’t labeled the timer button is the first one to the right of the big power correct.
If that doesn’t work maybe the 30i is different since it has an app??
