Here are a few CleverTips to help you when setting up your CleverSpa®:

Re-Pairing Your CleverSpa®
If your CleverSpa® has been moved or powered off for a period of time, you may need to re-pair it with the CleverSpa® CleverLink. This is a simple process like the original setup process:
1. Setup and power on your CleverSpa®.
2. Open the CleverLink.
3. Go to Setup & Pairing on the CleverLink Menu.
4. Login and follow the on screen instructions.

Changing the name of your hot tub:

1. Open CleverLink.
2. Open the Menu.
3. Tap “Select a hot tub”.
4. Swipe left across the name of the hot tub.
5. Press the pencil icon.
6. Rename the hot tub.

Rename a hot tub

Before filling your CleverSpa® we advise you establish the placement of your hot tub within range of your wireless network. You can gauge signal strength by looking for the wireless symbol on your phone. This will adjust as you move around and show you your signal strength: The more bars that are shown the better the WiFi signal strength, for best performance we suggest a minimum of 2 WiFi signal bars.

The buttons within the “Control Centre” will indicate when features are in use.

The Temperature icon will change to orange when actively heating.

The other icons, Bubbles, Filter and Heater will turn blue and the activity ring will pulse when active.

When a button is pressed it will be greyed out and the activity ring will spin to show that data is being sent or received by the CleverSpa®, The button cannot be pressed again until this process is complete. Under certain circumstances this can take a few seconds dependant on connection speed.

Have your network login credentials to hand, these are normally found on your router.

Users can control the same CleverSpa® by logging onto the CleverLink using the same account from any supported device.

CleverLink requires an internet connection to operate correctly.

If you change your router or its wireless password then you will also need to re-pair your spa with the network.

When setting a temperature that is higher than the current spa temperature, the heater and filter will automatically activate, you do not need to press the heat button.

If you turn off the power to your CleverSpa® you may have to re-set the temperature in the app to continue heating.

To avoid damage, please take care when using your electronic devices around your hot tub. WARNING: Never take your mobile device into your CleverSpa® with you.

Clever-Company Limited accepts no responsibility for devices damaged whilst using CleverLink.

CleverTips for Improving wireless signal

1. Relocate Your Router
The nearer your CleverSpa is to your router, the better your wireless signal will be.

2. Identify Any Interference
Wi-Fi signals can be affected by various sources such as other wireless routers, cordless phones, microwaves etc. Try to keep electrical appliances away from your router.

3. Change the Wireless Channel
Most wireless routers will automatically detect the best channel to broadcast on but you can search for less congested channels which provide a clearer signal. Follow directions on your router or contact your service provider for assistance with this.

4. Update Your Router’s Firmware
Manufacturers sometimes release Firmware updates that can improve your routers performance. Consult your router’s manual to find out exactly what to do.

5. Get a Wi-Fi Range Extender or Repeater
A Wi-Fi range extender or home wireless mesh system can help boost your Wi-Fi signal. A Wi-Fi extender is perfect in a home where Wi-Fi signal is weak.
CleverTip: You can still operate your CleverSpa® using its built in soft touch control panel, so you can enjoy your hot tub while you wait for your range extender to arrive.

6. Contact your provider
If you’ve tried the previous steps and you’re still having trouble, check with your internet provider.

Technical Notes

• We cannot guarantee CleverLink compatibility with older/unsupported hardware and operating Systems.

• CleverLink speed/performance may vary from device to device.

• If you have MAC address filtering enabled on your network you will have to disable this feature during setup and then reactivate it once you have setup the device. Once setup is complete you can find the devices MAC address in the ‘About’ section of the side menu.

• CleverLink may operate differently from controlling the spa directly from its control panel.

• CleverLink uses an active Wi-Fi/Mobile data connection to send and receive data from your CleverSpa®. It can take a few seconds for the spa to respond to commands from CleverLink dependant on connection speed and quality.

• If using mobile data to control your spa you may be charged for data by your mobile carrier.

• Your CleverSpa® uses an IEEE 802.11 2.4Ghz Wireless Radio frequency Channel to connect to supported network routers.

Your CleverSpa® does not currently support IEEE 802.11 5ghz wireless network connections.
If you’re having problems with your spa pairing with your home Wi-Fi, it may be related to your router frequency.

CleverSpa® is not compatible with 5GHz wireless networks.
Nearly all home routers support 2.4GHz and 5GHz signals. Most routers automatically connect you to the fastest and best signal. Some routers will split the different signals into different network names. If you see two different network names, ensure both your mobile device and CleverSpa® are connected to the 2.4GHz network. Check with your device manufacturer for details on the type of connections that your device offers.
