These say they can be immersed but I wouldn't trust them.
Water is a cruel mistress, I wouldn't expect to submerge anything and expect it to live more than a few months even if it says it's waterproof.
Unless it's extremely expensive and designed by Elon.

They are excellent. It's really important to get lamps that are resin filled otherwise they will leak and get ruined. These come with a nice little remote (1 per lamp, but 1 unit will drive multiple lamps as long as you are not too far away from all the devices). I haven't rigged them up with a smart controller. I just use a smart switch to activate them on/off. I'm really pleased with them.
Look nice, seems like they are like many other pool lights where the color controls are baked in, rather than allowing you to choose specific colors or scenes with fine grain color control (like Hue) It seems like the pool industry is pretty far behind everything else. I wonder why no one has a system like those for LED strip lights where there is a separate Controller/Driver not embedded in the light itself, that could be located above water.
Yes, they have preset colors and combinations/sequences. I did consider getting others and setting up controllers (there are articles online I found) but in the end it was too much hassle and I have limited space in the junction boxes above the lamps to house the controllers and run the necessary wires. Happy enough anyway
As far as a setup that's fully integrated with hubitat, I don't think that really exists.
I know Hayward has their omnilogic system that can control lighting, pump speed, temps, valves, water features, chemical balancing, salt systems....basically everything you're looking for. They do have an api as well so in theory it could be made to integrate with home automation platforms. The downside is, they require you to sign an NDA for the api details. There's a small group on HA working on an integration for it, and Hayward seems to be OK with releasing the integration when it's ready as long as they don't share the api.
Not sure if there'd be enough interest for the same thing to happen with HE, but I'm sure there's a number of pool owners here in the community and most likely have at least 1 piece of hayward equipment so it's possible.
I installed a Jandy Aqualink RS system connected to all of my equipment. Gave me discrete control via many forms of user interface. I then installed/integrated a Raspberry PI with AqualinkD and MQTT service, to provide external control to that Jandy system. In Hubitat, I use an MQTT client to integrate to the RPi MQTT service, for Hubitat integration and control. Its working pretty much rock solid.
Bump. Any word here on a Hayward Device Handler? I had something functional on the old ST, but it failed with the transition to new ST and that drove my transition to HE. Would love help transitioning my ST DH to HE or another solution. I just am not personally capable.
Thanks for the link and the update! Sure would be cool if someone did as the old ST one I customized doesn't work in any which form or fashion and even after reading the pages on converting DHs, I'm not sure which way is up.
I had a working device handler from smartthings that I dug up and started to port. It is functional using HEXIP:HEXPORT for the network address of the Hayward AQ-CO-HOMENET home your home network. The child devices create and delete on demans. The parent device attributes populate when refreshing, but the child devices do not properly communicate on/off with the parent device. Sharing as a WIP and troubleshooting as I can. If anyone has time to get the child devices working, that would be awesome.
thanks, @csteele! i integrated those changes and can still only refresh from the components. logs show it tries, and there is no failure, but the command does not make it to the controller. weirdly enough, refreshes do, though.

I have a Handy Aqualink and i bought the raspberry pi and rs232 interface but haven't installed yet with there aqualinkD
Really looking for someone who i can send and program that raspberry pi for me!
Any takers....i supply beer:)
