Coverstar is proud to introduce a new touch pad control switch, which has been given a voice of its own.

What if your pool cover controller could contact you, when you are away from home, to let you know who is using the pool?

Or notify you when your pool cover is closed, letting you know your pool is safe and secure?

What if your pool cover controller could alert you when your pool has been left uncovered?

Now it can with Coverstar!

The new Coverstar touchpad connects to your existing home network.  It is easy to set up and will allow you to choose which notifications you want to receive such as:

  • When the cover is closed
  • When a user code is entered
  • When an unauthorized user attempts to log in
  • When the cover is left open and more

The Coverstar touchpad allows you to program up to 4 unique user codes, so different members of the family can have their own code. The touchpad can be installed on any new or existing Coverstar automatic cover system. Let your pool cover connect to you.
