So, the fact is, your Pentair ScreenLogic has the capability of connecting with a large scale of devices. Such as, your android, windows, mac, or ios.
You can simply connect your phone tab or computer to your Pentair ScreenLogic and then use it as your controller.
Here the hectic thing is, so many people think that they just need to connect it with a device and then leave it off. This is a mistake and actually a useless point. Because you are taking this controller device for having control for 24 x 7.
But if you are just connecting it to your barely using device and leaving it off, it does not make any sense. In an instant crucial or necessary situation, you won’t be able to give it an instant command.
So, we recommend you connect your device with a device that you use constantly, so that, in any kinda situation you can command necessary steps and functions instantly.
Connecting To Phone

Also, some users get tempted with patched softwares and its interfaces. We would highly recommend not to use those cracks or patches from third party sites. It can turn out as malware or some trackers or loggers inside.
Pentair ScreenLogic Offline
This is a very common issue for a Pentair ScreenLogic user. You may find that sometimes the power is cut for a long time for different issues. Or the Wi-Fi is down or the router is turned off somehow.
When your device is disconnected from the internet for more than 60 minutes it will be in “Offline” status.
This is somehow risky for the system because you are completely away from all the necessary notifications and information from the system. It is because without Wi-Fi the data exchange is off. You are away from all the sensor information too.
To fix it you have to restore the connection. Once the internet connection is restored the Pentair home app will automatically get its connection back.
Update Pentair Firmware
For a seamless user experience, you should keep your system software or firmware up to date. In the intellicenter interface go to settings. Then advanced system configuration and in the system tab you will find firmware.
If the device has been loaded with an arrived update, then you can update by clicking it.
The process would take a little time to load. Though it depends on the update size and internet speed as well.
But we would also recommend keeping a minimum 60 % charge on the phone or adapter device. Once the updating is done, a reboot may give our device a fresh start, automatically or manually.
Pentair ScreenLogic Stopped Working
This is a very common and widespread issue. We are simplifying it.
Often it is seen that the user is giving the device command and still the device is not working or responding. This may happen for two specific reasons.
Firstly, the command is not reaching the main engine, or on the other side the main device is not capable of performing the task.

If the source is the controller, go through these steps:
- Maybe the connected phone is having a poor internet connection; in that case, solve the internet issue and the problem will be fixed.
- Check your both devices. Make sure your controller device and the main engine is connected over the same Wi-Fi network. If it isn’t, this may make issues like not responding or stopping to work.
- In many cases the users don’t update the firmware, which makes a situation like, older model firmware become incapable of running the devices flawlessly. If it is the issue, updating the firmware may solve it instantly.
How to update? We have already mentioned this in a part above.
