iAquaLink, an intelligent pool and spa control system from Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. (@ZodiacPool_USA) has won the People’s Choice “Best Connected Home Product” Internet of Things (IoT) award from Postscapes. iAquaLink allows pool owners to control their pool and spa anytime, anywhere using their smart phones and Web-connected devices. With its technology partner ioBridge, Zodiac created the iAquaLink platform to Internet-enable its popular AquaLink controllers and to add features such as real-time control, monitoring, and secure remote access.

Postscapes IoT Winner Zodiac Pool Systems

Zodiac partnered with ioBridge in 2009 and have created connected products in the pool, spa, and pump space for a connected backyard. Zodiac uses our RealTime.io Internet of Things Cloud Platform to connect products and services to mobile devices and cloud services.

 “iAquaLink is the hub of the connected backyard, but it’s just the beginning,” said David Goldman, director of product development at Zodiac. “We’ve established a strong connected device platform with iAquaLink, and we will continue to leverage intelligent and connected equipment to enhance the comfort, enjoyment, and peace of mind for our dealers and end-users alike. We’re very honored to receive this award. The IoT awards showcase technology leaders and products that make a positive impact on daily life, which is exactly what we set out to do.”

Zodiac is a great example of how the Internet of Things and Connected Products can completely transform a business and add services never thought possible before. We can’t wait to share more about how Zodiac continues to develop and connects the backyard to its customers in a meaningful way.

CheerLights Nominated for Best DIY Internet of Things Project

CheerLights is a worldwide network of multicolored lights that are synchronized together. When one color changes, all of the lights around the world change to that color. Colors are changed by sending a Tweet mentioning “cheerlights” and a color. This project is part of ioBridge Labs where we spend time on research and development of new projects, typically focused on the Internet of Things. CheerLights emerged from one of our Skunk Works projects.

We have the distinct honor of being nominated for an award. CheerLights has been nominated by Postscapes for the Best DIY Internet of Things project project for 2012. These are the 2nd annual Internet of Things Awards. Last year, we won for TideAlerts – our open network of tide level monitoring stations.

Please take a moment and vote for CheerLights and your favorite Internet of Things projects. Thanks!
