    If you want phone control you could wire a shelly 1 in parallel to your current controller?
    Or a RF smart socket with remote and wire the pump directly in?
    IKEA also do a socket with a remote button (unsure of range)

    Thank you, much appreciated - so could I have a smart plug wired in parallel to the Drayton?

    ...so that the pump would work on a either/or basis
    I was thinking of this one: https://www.tp-link.com/uk/home-networking/smart-plug/kp105/
    (I didn't know you could wire such things in parallel )
    cheers, Stephen

    No. You just use it instead of the timer. You can set up a smart plug to come on/off at set times plus override it when you want to. Either through an app or voice command over Alexa.

    The Shelly 1 could be wired in parallel. It also supports an on off timer. Only issue is you would have to control it via your phone or Alexa/google.

    The smart plug would have to go direct to the pump. However some do support timers for on/off
