    IntroductionThe Aqua Connect Home Network (ACHN) is a communications gateway that allowscertain Hayward pool controllers to connect to a home network and, if desired, theInternet.

    HOME NETWORK: Any home PC on the same router as the ACHN can become a poolcontrol terminal. This is accessible via any web browser and does not require specialsoftware to be installed on the PC. This is known as local server functionality.

    INTERNET: If the home has a full time (24/7) Internet connection, then the ACHN willcommunicate with the Aqua Connect website. Via an active login account on the AquaConnect website, the homeowner is able to monitor and control their pool from anyInternet enabled computer, anywhere. This is known as web client functionality.

    The ACHN connects to the pool controller via the Hayward proprietary radio networkand connects to the home router via a CAT5e ethernet (or equivalent) network cable.The ACHN is wired into the home network.

    This ManualThis manual will cover three different topics: ACHN hardware Local server functionality Aqua Connect website (web client) functionalityThis manual does NOT contain installation instructions. They are in a separate installa-tion manual.

    ACHN HardwareThe front panel of the ACHN contains 4 LEDs at the top and the Teach Button at thebottom. The LEDs are labeled and their meanings are detailed in Table 1. The back panelof the ACHN contains the power jack, the Ethernet (CAT5e) connector, and the RS-485connector. The ACHN connects to the pool controller as a wireless terminal does: Itneeds to be taught. Both ACHN and the pool controller must be put into Teach Mode atthe same time to allow ACHN to link to the pool controller. As a fallback, ACHN can bewired into the pool controller RS-485 bus.

    TEACH BUTTONThe Teach Button is used during installation both to initiate Teach Mode and to initiateRange Test Mode. Both Teach Mode and Range Test Mode may need to be re-run afterinstallation.

    TEACH MODETo initiate Teach Mode: First go to the Settings Menu on the pool controller, press theleft arrow twice to get to the screen Teach Wireless: + to start, and then press the pluskey. Then depress and continue to hold down the Teach Button on the ACHN. All 4LEDs should turn off as soon as the Teach Button is pressed; they will remain off forseveral seconds as you continue to hold the Teach Button down. Then all 4 LEDs willbegin to blink in unison and you should continue to hold the Teach Button down.Finally all 4 LEDs will turn on and remain on. If you release the Teach Button while all 4LEDs are on solid then you will force the ACHN to enter Teach Mode.

    Note that after releasing the Teach Button with the ACHN in Teach Mode the RF LEDshould immediately begin to blink rapidly. If this does not happen then the ACHN did
