VS Motors and Automotion Compatibility

I am planning on updating my 1.5HP motor for one of the variable speed motors.
i am thinking of either the
- Pentair Intelliflo
- Jacuzzi J-VSP250 (has a 5 year warrantee and cheap installation)

Details of my current set up are in my sig.

I want to also use the Jandy Aqualink controller I have. There is an upgrade available that will let me control via iPhone, etc.

- Is there any info about how well the Aqualink (last version via the upgrade) works with either of those pumps?
- I am sure it is better to buy the same automation from the same company as the pump, but that seems like overkill
- Are there serious compromises by not using the same company for both the controller and pump?

It needs to be easy for the family to use:
- Bypass the programming to turn on the spa and have it heated by the solar and/or the gas (do that today via the RS8 controller)
- Resort to normal programming for filtering when done.

Thanks all!

From my limitted knowledge gained here in replacing my pump you might need the SuperFlo and add on cable but I could be wrong. I have a 2003 jandy controller that predates VS Pumps or at least their popularity so it doesn't control them.

The Jandy iAqualink is compatible with the Intelliflo VS and VF but nothing about the Jacuzzi VS. The Jandy Control board Rev O and newer will support Intelliflo pumps
