What is the SmartTub™ System?

If you’re ready to take your hot tub experience to the next level, the SmartTub™ System from Sundance® Spas can allow you to do just that. This high-tech system makes hot tub ownership a snap, allowing you to use and maintain your hot tub right from your smartphone. The objective of the SmartTub™ System is to give you the best hot tub experience possible by enhancing your relaxation and recovery as well as your spa’s performance potential.

The SmartTub™ App  

After downloading the app to your smartphone or tablet, you’re ready to get started. Essentially, the app is like having a personal assistant for your hot tub. The app acts as a reference guide, walking you through not only the characteristics and workings of your spa, but spa ownership as a whole. Available on iOS and Android, the app can be used whether you’re at home, at work or out running errands.

The Benefits of Using the SmartTub™ System

The SmartTub™ System app presents pointers and provides videos explaining how to maintain and care for your spa. The app can even customize the information you are given based on how you use your hot tub. It allows you to effortlessly update settings such as energy efficiency and temperature and you’ll also receive energy usage estimates and power outage notifications. The app even removes the responsibility from your shoulders of scheduling service. Instead, you and your spa dealer will receive an alert when a service call is needed.

The SmartTub™ System: How it Works

This high-tech system uses alternative technologies such as machine-to-machine (M2M) communication to ensure efficiency. Local cell towers are used to enable stable networks with high-quality performance. If you’re worried about the service being available in your area, don’t be. Sundance® Spas is partnered with major wireless carriers across the globe.

Rather than connecting your use of this top-notch technology to your personal cellular plan, you will be billed directly through the app on an annual basis — but not until year two. It’s free for the first 12 months. 

Once you do start receiving a bill, you’ll find that the service is not costly. That’s because M2M communication uses 3G technology, a very low bandwidth, to connect. As a result, it’s much cheaper for customers. 

Sundance® Spas also makes use of data packets that are smaller than text messages to remotely control and monitor your spa. In fact, even if you lack adequate cell service to stream video, your coverage will adequately support your SmartTub™ System.
