Halo Connect allows installers and users to easily and intuitively set-up and operate a range of pool sanitation and automation products with Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. Designed in Australia, this product uses wireless communication at installation and smart device control for remote use and monitoring.

  • Equipment installations are a web of wires, often referred to as spaghetti installations, with sanitation and automation products being the most labour intensive to connect. Many installers complain about the small connection points and difficulties reaching these connections once a product is installed. This often leads to incorrectly wired installs, or frustration to the point where some features are not connected

  • Halo Connect allows for any existing (or new) pieces of equipment to connect to a core product (the Chlorinator) via Bluetooth. It does this by adding peripheral 'plug n play' control hubs that existing equipment is plugged into. Each of these plug n play control hubs are then connected via Bluetooth to the core (Chlorinator), thereby alleviating issues when trying to wire in connections. Any equipment that is plugged into these 'plug n play' control hubs are then controlled via the core which is then connected via Wifi to a smart device for the user to manage their pool.

  • This will encourage installers to be able to offer a range of features that are customisable to suit the end users requirements. It saves time and money during the installation and set up phase, and allows for quick easy retrofit for new equipment added at a later date

  • Halo Connect is a range of products that will control the pool depending on the equipment installed on the pool. Halo Chlor - a chlorinator that sanitizes the pool water thru electrolysis of saltwater Halo Doser - an acid pump that is tethered to Halo Chlor for maintaining pH balance in the pool Halo Sense - pH and ORP that connect via Bluetooth to Halo Chlor to maintain pool water health Halo Hub - a plug in automation module that can controls valves, a heater, lights, temp sensor inputs and has 2 x 240VAC GPOs to connect additional pumps (communicates to Halo Chlor via Bluetooth) Halo Xpand - a plug in automation module that has temp sensor inputs and 2 x 240VAC GPOs to connect equipment such as blowers, swim jets etc Halo Lite 2 - a 2 light control transformer that controls either single or multi-colour lights (communicates to Halo Chlor via Bluetooth), can also be used as a standalone controller Halo Lite 4 - a 4 light control transformer that controls either single or multi-colour lights (communicates to Halo Chlor via Bluetooth) can also be used as a standalone controller
