Pool Automation solution with NTP client

Greetings,

I have an iAqualink that I purchased many years ago and installed myself. The iOS app is my primary pool interface.

My biggest complaint is that every time the power goes out, or I have to power cycle the system, it is necessary to *manually* reset the system clock via the clunky web interface.

Does anyone know of a solution that can automatically query an NTP server to set the time, just like ALL of the other network devices that I own?

Is there a newer version of iAqualink that fixes this?

Looking for something that does not require a monthly service contract. Apple HomeKit integration would be a plus. Not an Alexa or Google fan.

Thanks,

Vincente

Welcome to TFP.

Your Aqualink has a 9V battery in the lower right of the control panel. You will see one screw that if removed opens a little door where the battery is. The battery maintains the time when the power goes out. Make a note to replace the battery every year.
