I have a Wifi (Balboa) Spa module connected to my hot tub that allows me to control the pumps, light, etc. The problem is the module often falls off the network and can only be reconnected by rebooting the entire tub. Anyone that owns such the same module will have the same problem and a reboot is the only “practical” solution. The company is aware and are searching for a solution (over 1 year now).
I removed the module from the spa and placed an extension cable in its place. The module then connects the the other end of the extension which is accesible from outside the tub. Now instead of rebooting the entire tub, i can simply go outside, disconnect and reconnect the module from the extension and I am back in business for a day or two. Repeat and rinse.
My questions are: Is there a way to automate this by the use of a z-wave toggle switch? When the module disconnects I simply turn the switch off and back on. If so, what is it called and where can I get it??
