Essential Info

The Intermatic PE653RC MultiWave Z-wave Pool/Spa/Home Control allows you to automate
your pool/spa with the most technologically advanced wireless control system in the market today! MultiWave is designed as a "plug and play" system; install the water sensor and watch the MultiWave thermostat come alive to maintain your pool and/or spa water temperatures. Install the air sensor (optional) and watch the MultiWave freeze protection system come alive to protect your investment. Control up to five pool/spa functions, and three ON/OFF events. It features full variable speed control and backlit LCD readout. This wireless waterproof handheld controller has an internal 24-hour digital clock and memory back-up.

The MultiWave system uses Z-Wave technology, that lets you expand your system with other devises as part of a complete home automation system. Inexpensive repeaters can be added that plug into available electrical outlets to help extend the RF signal range of the entire system. Z-Wave technology eliminates intermittent signal problems experienced with many other systems. The Wireless Pool/Spa Control System brings wireless control to a new level of simplicity and affordability - it is easier to install and maintain, with better dependability, and at a cost that's competitive with any other system available.

Additional Features:
  • Antenna can be remotely located using a Standard Cat 5 Ethernet cable with RJ45 plugs
  • Offers timer capability and can control up to five preprogrammed configurable circuits
  • Approved snap-in wiring separator for use with low voltage heater control circuit
  • Manuals/Software

    More Info

    Hand-Held Controller (PE953) - The main function of the Hand-Held Controller is to transmit user commands to the PE653 Receiving Device, PE650 Receiving Device, and/or Z-Wave home control devices, and to display the status of the installed equipment. The unit floats if thrown in the pool or spa, is water-submersible, shock resistant, and requires three (3) AA batteries. Expected battery life is about one year in typical use. When the components of a specific system are linked together into a network, unique network ID codes supplied by the PE953 prevent unauthorized use of the system by neighboring systems.

    24-Volt Valve Actuator (PE24VA) - Designed with quality in mind, Intermatic's 24-volt valve actuators provide reliable control of 2-way and 3-way diverter valves for pool/spa combinations and water features. The water flow can be altered for specific applications through the adjustable cam, which rotates diverter valves to multiple degree settings. The cam settings can be easily adjusted by simply removing the lid. These valve actuators are compatible with all pool/spa valves currently offered in the industry and will retrofit into all pool/spa control systems.

    Water Temperature Sensor (PA122) The Intermatic Water Sensor (PA122) monitors both pool and spa water temperature, depending on the position of the diverter valves. Installation is necessary for the thermostatic control to work. The sensor can be ordered separately.

    24-Volt Valve/Pump Switch (P4243ME) - Designed as part of the Multi-Wave system and for aftermarket and
    retrofit applications, the P4243ME is most suited for controlling up to two different circuits associated with pool/spa combinations, but can also be used to control all the equipment typically needed in connection with water features, water gardening, solar heating, and other similar applications. This unit snaps into almost any Intermatic enclosure and controls pumps up to 3HP, 24 volt supply for up to three valve actuators, automated HIGH/LOW water temperature selector, heater connection circuit, and push-button control for each load with indicator lights on the face of the switch. In addition, the unit has connections for a hard-wired or wireless remote and a master switch controller. For this installation, if an enclosure must be added, we recommend Intermatic 2T2485GA.

    Optional - Freeze (Air Temperature) Sensor (178PA28A) - Add the Intermatic Freeze or Air Temperature Sensor (178PA28A) to installations where below-freezing outdoor temperatures are a concern.

    This is a tricky item to rate. On the one hand, it rates 5 stars, for what it does and its functionality. On the other, it rates 1 star for its form factor. Having it mount on top of a useless electrical box is silly and pointless, plus I need it not accessible and had to mount it in a separate box. It also gets 1 star because there is no way to access it online, and I can't access it through my z-wave Vera home controller, but that -5 stars would go to Vera for not supporting this device properly. On the one hand I love it, on the other, I hate it. Take your pick!

    Just a word of advice. Try very hard not to get this remote wet and keep it in doors as often as possible. We are on our 4th remote in 5 years and barely ever got them wet. Once the battery compartment which is supposed to be waterproof rusted out. The other two the LCD screens became unreadable from moisture. Very expensive to replace, other than that, they work great.

    Can you control this system over the computer if you have a zwave stick
    MICHAEL -- carlisle, MA   1/13/2014
    Nice unit, easy to install & works perfectly. I recommend this unit for retrofit or new installations in a spa.
    Dave -- Flordia   1/9/2014
    Junk bought it thinking that I could use it with my computer talked to the tec people at intermatic didn'nt know much about it

    Package was missing a small screwdriver, but we Figured it out

    Basic pool controller. Very cheaply built. The remote control is NOT waterproof. Had to replace mine twice already. You get what you pay for.
    Blueman2 -- saratoga, Ca   12/10/2012
    I have had this controller for about 2 years and it has been great. I use it to control: 1 An Intelliflo variable speed pump. 2 Blower for SPA 3 Heater 4 Booster pump for cleaner. 5 Pool light The user interface and programming take some getting used to. Not a very high WAF wife acceptance factor due to its sometimes hard to understand user interface, but she has figured it out mostly. While I do not have a Z-wave Vera controller, I have learned that they now DO support controlling pool temps through their system great news! Finally, on the downside. Only real complaint is that this locks you out of controlling your pump manually when using variable speed pump. That means the pool people cannot turn my system on or off for cleaning. Manual switches on the unit will not control variable speed pump. So that is a big design flow in my opinion. But as others have noted, this is mostly due to Pentair, not Intermec.

    lasted just over a year. waste of money.

    I think the other reviewer on this product was overly negative. I bought this product and have been very happy with it. If you want a wireless system to control pool and other equip so you don't have to go into the pool shed every day, etc. then this system is hard to beat. I had an old Intermatic dial-based control unit, and wanted to upgrade, so this digital version seemed natural choice. Moreover, the same systems from Pentair I have pentair heater were well over $2000, which is outrageous. Could buy a hot new hot tub for that! At $300 this is a great deal. And in truth, its better technology than the Pentair equip. It works by z-wave, so I can log the data etc. I had electrician take out old unit and install this for about $100. Then I installed both the pool water temp and air temp sensors without too much problem bit tricky, but not bad. Interface menus take some getting used to, but a little patience and it eventually comes together. Then I wired it up to the Pentair heater via the fireman's switch and that works well too. All in all, best pool automation system I have found for the money.
    Minnies Sanctuary -- Florida   7/24/2011
    I purchased the pool controller Nov 2010. I had a few growing pains in getting it working with my Vera2 z wave controller. But after relocating the antenna consider this a must it now works wonderfully. I use relays for the heat pump power and heat pump temperature control and pool lighting in addition to the pool pump. MCV the Vera2 supplier needs to step up with Intermatic and provide better controls, like a thermostat control for pool heating. But aside form that I am quite happy.
    uskiman -- Chicago   7/22/2011
    The MutliWave is designed to only control the Pentair Variable Speed Pump not the Intelflow pump which explains your problem. The local lock out you speak of is a programming function within the pump, not the control. Even Pentairs controls lock out the pump controls. It was purposely designed that way from Pentair.
    GRANVILLE -- starkville, MS   6/18/2011
    I bought this so I could remote control my inteliflow pump without buying all the pentair stuff. Well, I can remote control it, but not what I expected. It has 4 modes, or 4 speed settings you can program and select between them. What is worse, is that it locks you out of the pumps local controls, so if your at the pump and need to change modes, you have to go find the remote. The buttons on the main box don't seem to control the pump, only the relays. Documentation on the vf pump interface is sparse. Perhaps a firmware update, if it can be updated, or more documentation would help.
