In this video I upgrade the timers on my pool to Wink Compatible Zigbee timers from GE. When I bought my house 3 years ago I inherited Intermatic timers. I’ve hated those things ever since I first had to adjust the time. They are awful! The little clips move, you can’t turn them on or off at certain time points when they are about to trip.
So I found some GE Z-Wave Smart Controls that could handle 40A 240v, which is well above my pool pump requirements. So I bought two of them and set out to convert my pool to being controlled by Wink. Watch to see how it went.
Update: 10 September – Nearly a month later the timers are working flawlessly. Even after Hurricane Harvey’s record setting rains the pool pumps are working as scheduled.
Update July 2020: Still working flawlessly. Wink, not so much…. but it all still works.
