using Coverstar toggle switch located inside pool cover box. i want to control from inside house where i can see the pool only 10 feet away. i see coverstar makes a wifi model, but still need access from pool for maintenance visits. ideas on remote cover switches?

Doesn't Coverstar have a push button key pad available? I've seen them. You can give the pool tech the code and let them open/shut the cover.

Remember that for your pool water its best to open the cover every few days at least to allow the water to
breath. Gases can get trapped under the cover and they need to dissipate and get exposed to the sun a bit.

thanks Maddie! Good tip on leaving it open every few days. appreciate that. they do have a push keypad i am trying to devise a way i can open and close the cover from kitchen window which is right above the pool rather than going to pool, opening the cover box and pressing the key.... ideas???

My actual key pad is on my deck. The install guys asked me where I wanted it and ran it all the way over there. In conduit, I believe. About 25' away from cover motor.
