IT‛S LATE AT NIGHT. IN THE CITY, EVERYTHING SHOULD HAVE CALMED DOWN. BUT AT THE SPA MANUFACTURING PLANT, THE PARKING IS FULL OF CARS AND THE FACTORY SEEMS REALLY BUSY.

HUM!… THIS IS STRANGE. USUALLY, THERE ARE NO NIGHT SHIFTS AT THIS PLANT. THEY MUST BE WORKING OVERTIME… LET‛S CHECK!

ON THE FACTORY FLOOR, WORKERS ARE HARD AT WORK, MAKING SPAS. THE COMPANY IS LATE IN DELIVERING A BIG ORDER FOR A MAJOR CUSTOMER.

OH! MIKE IS HERE TOO…

YES… THEY‛RE BURNING THE MIDNIGHT OIL, NO QUESTIONS.

IN HIS OFFICE, MIKE, THE PRODUCTION MANAGER, IS TALKING ON THE PHONE. THE LEVEL OF STRESS IS HIGH.

WE‛RE TOO LOW ON KEYPADS, PACKS AND PUMPS. I NEED TO KNOW WHEN WE WILL RECEIVE OUR NEXT SHIPMENT FROM GECKO. WE CANNOT AFFORD TO STOP PRODUCTION. I DON‛T WANT TO LOSE THIS CUSTOMER!

ON THE PRODUCTION FLOOR OF ANOTHER SPA FACTORY, A WORKER IS TRYING TO ASSEMBLE THE CABLES OF A CONVENTIONAL LED LIGHT SYSTEM ON AN IN.MIX EQUIPPED SPA. EVIDENTLY, IT IS NOT EASY.

YOU KNOW! I WISH WE HAD A BETTER LED LIGHT SOLUTION. THE IN.MIX IS GREAT, BUT THESE THIRD PARTY CABLES AND LEDS ARE SUCH A PAIN.

I HATE TO SEE YOU STRUGGLING WITH THIS MESS OF WIRES. WHAT A WASTE! SORRY TO INTRUDE MARY-JO. I‛M

FIRST, LET‛S GET RID OF THIS INFERNAL SPAGHETTI…

OVERHEARD?... WHAT I JUST SAID?… SUPER GECKOES?…

HO!!?…

NOW, TO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THE IN.MIX 300 FEATURES, LET‛S CREATE 2 LIGHT ZONES WITH IN.LU.ME‛S LOOP CABLES TO ILLUMINATE THE INTERIOR OF THIS SPA… 6

YOU SEE MARY-JO. THESE LOOP CABLES, THEY HAVE CLEVER T-CONNECTORS. LET‛S CONNECT IN.LU.ME LED SPYDERS TO THE LOOP CABLES AND THE JETS.


NOW, LET‛S CREATE A THIRD ZONE TO LIGHT THE EXTERIOR CONTOUR OF THE SPA.

SIMPLY CONNECT THE LOOP CABLES TO THE IN.MIX 300 CONTROL BOX ZONE CONNECTORS AND VOILA!

OR A SMARTPHONE RUNNING THE IN.TOUCH 2 APP.

DAD, I‛M A VERY DISAPPOINTED. WHAT‛S BUGGING YOU, SON?

WELL, BUYING THIS SWIM SPAS FOR MY TRAINING WAS A GREAT IDEA BUT IT SIMPLY DOESN‛T WORK. I HAVE TO STOP SWIMMING ALL THE TIME TO CHANGE THE PUMP SPEEDS AND GET THE WATER FLOW I NEED FOR MY DIFFERENT DRILLS. IT‛S NOT WHAT I EXPECTED.

HELLO GUYS! I‛M SUPER K1000 AND I THINK I CAN HELP THIS YOUNG MAN MAKE THE SWIM TEAM NEXT SEASON.

TO START, LET‛S INSTALL THE COMPONENTS YOUR SWIM SPA SHOULD HAVE BEEN EQUIPPED WITH IN THE FIRST PLACE.

GEE, THAT‛S TOO BAD. I PAID SERIOUS MONEY FOR THIS SPA AND THEY TOLD ME THAT IT WAS PERFECT FOR A SWIMMER LIKE YOU.

3 POWERFUL AQUA-FLO BY GECKO XP3 PUMPS, A TOP OF THE LINE GECKO‛S IN.YT CONTROL SYSTEM, WELL…

WHO?… WHAT?… HOW?…

THIS, MY FRIENDS, IS A THING OF BEAUTY. A WORK OF GENIUS. THE PERFECT BALANCE OF ART AND TECHNOLOGY AND IT COMES WITH...

AN IN.TOUCH 2 TO CONNECT YOUR SWIM SPA TO THE AN IN.MIX 300 LIGHT SYSTEM INTERNET, WITH IN.LU.ME CABLES & LEDS AND AN IN.K1000 KEYPAD.

YOU SEE, GECKO‛S NEW VERSION OF ITS IN.K1000 HAS A STATE-OF-THE-ART TOUCH SCREEN DISPLAY WITH PRECISE FINGERTIP CONTACT AREA FOR ACCURATE TARGET SELECTION, OPTIMAL WATER RESISTANCE, A BOOSTED CPU AND LOTS OF MEMORY.

YES, LIKE THE PERFECT COMPUTER FOR YOUR SWIM SPA.

HA! HO!

...THE ULTIMATE SWIMMING TRAINING SYSTEM.

8

LIKE A COMPUTER.

SINCE IT‛S NOW CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET, LET‛S DOWNLOAD THE LATEST SWIM SPA SYSTEM UPDATE DIRECTLY FROM YOUR NEW IN.K1000 KEYPAD.


DIRECTLY ON THE DISPLAY, YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE YOUR TRAINING SESSION BY SETTING VARIOUS WATER FLOW INTENSITIES.

I JUST TRANSFORMED YOUR SWIM SPA INTO THE ULTIMATE TRAINING MACHINE FOR A SWIMMER LIKE YOUR SON.

IT‛S LIKE HAVING YOUR OWN COACH TO WATCH OVER YOU…

LET ME SHOW YOU.

I BETTER START SWIMMING.

YOU SEE THE BLINKING YELLOW LIGHTS? IT‛S MY COACH TELLING ME TO GET READY…

NOW A LITTLE BIT LESS STRONG FOR A LONGER SWIM. NOTHING‛S BETTER TO KEEP YOUR SHAPE UNTIL THE LIGHTS‛ COLOR CHANGES AGAIN.

I‛M SWIMMING AGAINST THE STRONG COMBINED JETS OF THE XP3 PUMPS. THE LIGHTS ARE RED. I KNOW I MUST SWIM FAST. WHEN THE LIGHTS WILL BLINK, THE STRENGTH OF THE JETS WILL DIMINISH AND I WILL CHANGE MY SWIMMING STYLE.

LIGHTS TELL ME THE FLOW HAS CHANGED AGAIN.

IT‛S SOFTER NOW.

I CAN REST A LITTLE SWIMMING BACKSTROKE EXACTLY LIKE I WOULD DO IF I WAS TRAINING AT THE COLLEGE POOL…

YOU CAN SET DURATION, INTENSITIES, COLORS….

NOW, A LAST PUSH TO FINISH MY DEMO IN STYLE.

WOW! THAT‛S AMAZING.

YOU CAN ALSO SELECT AND MODIFY DIFFERENT PRE-SET LAP, TRANSITION, CARDIO AND POWER DRILLS TO MATCH YOUR TRAINING NEEDS.

I KNOW… YOUR TURN NOW!

THE BEST-SELLING IN.K1000 CAPACITIVE TOUCH SCREEN KEYPAD WITH GROUND-BREAKING DISPLAY, INTERNET THE END! CONNECTIVITY & SWIM SPA TRAINING SYSTEM.


MY APP INDICATES THAT THERE IS A SYSTEM ERROR ON THEIR SPA.

WITH THE IN.TOUCH IC APP, IT‛S SO EASY TO MONITOR IN.TOUCH 2 CONNECTED SPAS.

AH… THE MCCARTHY‛S… THERE JUST DOWN BELOW…

WHERE DID HE PUT THE MANUAL ?

HELLO MRS. MCCARTHY.

AH! IT‛S YOU, SUPER ASSISTANT. YOU STARTLED ME. YES, A FLO ERROR MESSAGE ON THE KEYPAD…

YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR SPA?

I‛VE JUST INTRODUCED YOUR SPA TO ALEXA THROUGH YOUR IN.TOUCH 2 SYSTEM.

AND I DON‛T KNOW WHAT TO DO…

ALEXA… ASK MY IN.TOUCH WHAT DOES THE FLO ERROR MESSAGE ON MY KEYPAD MEANS?

OH, I‛M GOING TO VERIFY THIS IMMEDIATELY! THANKS ALEX… LET‛S SEE IF ALEXA CAN HELP YOU.

JUST SAY: “ALEXA.. ASK MY IN.TOUCH…

10

THE SYSTEM DOES NOT DETECT ANY WATER FLOW WHILE THE PRIMARY PUMP IS RUNNING. THIS COULD BE DUE TO WATER VALVES BEING CLOSED, WATER LEVEL BEING LOW OR A DIRTY FILTER. CHECK ALL THE ABOVE. IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTS, CONTACT YOUR DEALER.

SUPER ASSISTANT, I MEAN!

IT‛S ALWAYS SUPER TO ASSIST YOU, MRS. MCCARTHY.


LET‛S PAY A VISIT TO MR. JONES BEFORE HE AND HIS FAMILY GO AWAY ON VACATION.

HELLO SUPER ASSISTANT. HOW HAVE YOU BEEN?

BEEN GREAT. MR. JONES. YOU STILL USE YOUR GOOGLE HOME, DON‛T YOU?

YES!

GEES… I FORGOT ABOUT IT.

I KNOW YOU‛RE GOING AWAY FOR A FEW WEEKS. DID YOU THINK ABOUT CHANGING YOUR SPA WATER CARE SETTINGS TO SAVE ENERGY WHILE YOU‛RE AWAY?

HEY GOOGLE! ASK MY IN.TOUCH TO PUT MY SPA IN AWAY FROM HOME.

OK, IN.TOUCH IS PUTTING YOUR SPA IN AWAY FROM HOME

ENJOY YOUR VACATIONS.

THANKS SUPER ASSISTANT.

HELLO MR. DIXON! HARD AT WORK AGAIN. WELL, THAT WAS A GOOD DAY…

HELLO SUPER A! YES. STILL SO MUCH TO DO BUT I‛M SO TIRED!

OK, ONE MORE STOP TODAY…

I‛M SURE MR. DIXON NEEDS TO RELAX.

GUESS A MOMENT OF REST IN THE WARM WATER OF YOUR SPA WILL MAKE YOUR STRESS DISAPPEAR…

WHAT A GREAT IDEA! THANKS SUPER A!. ALEXA… ASK MY IN .TOUCH WHAT IS THE TEMPERATURE OF THE WATER IN MY SPA.

THE WATER TEMPERATURE IN YOUR SPA IS 104˚F
