New System Delivers Automatic Alerts to Local Dealers for Fast, Convenient Service While Owners Are Away

 

VISTA, Calif., NOVEMBER 12, 2014Hot Spring®, the only brand to sell more than one million hot tubs, introduces Connextion™, the industry’s first mobile app that allows the spa owner and the local dealer to conveniently monitor the hot tub and respond if there is ever an issue. Whether the hot tub is located at the owner’s main residence or time zones away at a vacation home, Connextion provides push-button control and real-time monitoring of key Hot Spring spa functions.

More than just an app or a spa “remote control,” a key benefit is convenient dealer service available to Hot Spring customers through a yearly subscription. As part of the subscribed service, local dealers will receive alerts from Connextion when potential issues arise with the hot tub. Dealers can also monitor spa systems, alert owners of upcoming service needs, and handle the necessary service whether or not the owner is near the spa.

With Connextion from Hot Spring, spa owners can:

  • Set the spa’s temperature miles away from its location to ensure the hot tub is ready to provide relaxing hot tub therapy.
  • Initiate the clean-up cycle.
  • Lock the spa from unsolicited use.
  • Control the state-of-the-art ACE® Salt Water Sanitizing System – exclusive technology from Hot Spring to reduce water maintenance, use fewer chemicals, and keep spa water fresh and clean for up to one year.
  • Monitor filter cleanliness.
  • Monitor the spa’s active features at any time.

“It’s natural that a spa be integrated into the connected home, delivering convenience and peace of mind,” stated Kacy Rivers, Hot Spring brand manager. “Providing greater utility of the spa – so more people can enjoy the wellness benefits it provides – is one of our main focuses. For frequent travelers or vacation-home owners, the Connextion system is perfect. It provides the ability to monitor the spa from virtually anywhere, with the added benefit of having a local dealer at the ready if there’s an issue.”

Installation is simple. Connect the home network adapter to the home’s router, and download the app. The Connextion app can be downloaded for free and is compatible with leading smartphones, including the Apple® iPad®, iPhone® and iPod® Touch, and Android™-enabled devices.
