Can I ask someone to walk me through what else if anything I need to be able to use this to control my pool through Indigo? Is there an Indigo product that the Jandy RS Serial Adapter needs to plug into? Thanks in advance.

Tad, Are you saying that you have a recently installed Aqualink system with the serial adaptor, and that the Indigo Jandy scripts are operational? I ask as there is concern in another thread that something "broke" with a recent update to either the Aqualink serial adaptor or the main Aqualink Power Center PCB board (rev QQ). So, it would be good to know that someone with a recently installed system has been successful with these scripts.
I'm considering learning python to be able to convert the scripts to an Indigo plugin, but don't want to even start if it only works for older systems (mine dates from 2008).

1. Serial Adapter gets wired to RS8 Color Touch Control
2. Keyspan adapter plugs into the Jandy Serial Adapter
3. Where does the USB end of the Keyspan plug into? Does it have to go into the computer? That is going to be tough for me. Is there a way to plug the usb end of the Keyspan into an indigo product that simply plugs in the wall so instructions can be sent over powerlines just like all the other indigo products?
