Remote access to the system
Connecting your PoolManager® to the internet or LAN enables you to monitor and regulate all functions of your pool remotely at any time and from anywhere using your phone, tablet or other internet enabled device.
The graphical interface of the PoolManager® is completely based on the newest standard web technology.
1 Web browser
The user interface is displayed by a web browser, which is running locally on the PoolManager® unit. Additional browsers running on any devices connected to the local network or the internet can access the web browser of the PoolManager®.
2 Web server
The web server delivers requested menu pages to all connected Web browsers.
3 Data server
The data server manages and stores all PoolManager® data (measured values, system statuses, configuration parameters) and makes them available to the web server.
The PoolManager® webGUI facilitates complete and entirely transparent remote access from a local network (TCP/IP, Ethernet) or from the internet. Transparent remote access means that the user interface looks exactly the same as the display on the PoolManager® and is operated identically. Certain restrictions in remote access are required for security reasons only.
Remote access can be realised with any mobile or stationary device or system that is connected to the PoolManager® via a network or the internet, and which runs a standard browser. This prerequisite is already available as a standard on an ever growing number of modern systems.
