Connecting Jandy Aqualink to ClareHome
Once the Jandy Aqualink system is installed, connect the RS serial adapter, and then connect it to the ClareHome data network, or directly to your CLIQ controller. To make the connection to the ClareHome data network, you need to attach an IP-to-Serial device to the Jandy Aqualink RS Serial Adapter and to the ClareHome data network. To make a connection directly to the CLIQ controller, simply connect a serial cable from the Jandy Aqualink RS Serial Adapter to the serial port on the back of the CLIQ controller.
To connect the Jandy Aqualink to the ClareHome data network:
1. Attach one end of a Cat 5 networking cable to a port on the ClareHome data network, and then attach the other end of the cable to the RJ-45 jack on the IP-to-Serial device. See Figure 1.
2. Attach the one end of an RS-232 cable to the IP-to-Serial device, and then attach the other end to the Jandy Aqualink RS Serial Adapter.

To ensure proper communication between the Jandy Aqualink and the ClareHome system, configure your IP-to-Serial device with the following settings.
Note: When setting serial parameters in your IP-to-Serial device, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions.
To connect the Jandy Aqualink directly to a CLIQ controller:
Attach the RJ12 end of an RJ12-to-DB9 connector cable (included with your CLIQ controller) to the RS-232 port on the CLIQ controller, and then attach the DB9 end of the cable to the serial port on the Jandy Aqualink RS Serial Adapter.
