[APP] [Pro and Cloud] Daikin ONECTA

Ha Rob,

Thanks for the tip.

Do you mean Google Home (pod) ?

Would be new to me. No home-pod and no automation using Google Home yet.

@ECort yes the google home like the nest mini home hub etc all google home devices.

Thanx. Check. Perfect.

Groet, Eric

SUPER excited.
I want to use Homey to automatically turn on the air conditioning when there’s excess solar power, trying to pre-cool the house when electricity is free anyway (instead of only cooling in the evening shortly before bedtime, when the amount of solar power starts getting more limited).

Same here

Great news,
Code is ready and tested against to PreProduction environment of Daikin.
I’ am contact with daikin so hopefully we can move to there Production environment soon.

Full duplex intergration for:

  • On / off mode

  • Powerful mode.

  • Operation mode : auto, heating , cooling, dry, fanonly

  • Fan speed mode : auto, quit, fixed (1-5)

  • Fan direction horizontal mode : swing, stop

  • Fan direction vertical mode : auto, swing , stop.

  • temperature setpoint for mode, auto, heating and cooling.

  • roomtemperature and outdoortemperature are there to but only as update.

Basic flows for on/off and temperature are there as default.
In the mean time i need to wait for Daikin i create some more flowcards.

Super duper, eindelijk :slight_smile: Heeft wat werk gekost maar heb je wat!

TOP News, can’t wait to use it!

Any further news? Is Daikin dragging their feet or is this the normal time for them to verify the impact on their API?

Just received a message from Daikiin, migration to daikin production will not take place in 2021.
When i can;t tell you unfortunately.

Alright, thanks for letting us know!

Any news?

Nope, unfortunately not
Daikin takes a lot of time for all.

They’re Japanese after all!

That’s great news

I have the BRP069B41 WI-FI module.

Two questions:

  1. Will this app be usefull/work for me
  2. Will it give any more functionality then the Daikin app that already run and works on Homey for me?

Reason for asking is that after I swapped IPhone app from “Daikin online controller” which the company that installed the unit told me to use and over to “Daikin Residential Controller” (in other words the same as this homey app) I see that there is more functionality among having energy readings

  1. Theoretical it should work.
    Inside Info : Daikin has told me that the current WIFI Modules that are using the current Homey Daikin app (Daikin AI App voor Homey | Homey) by @Homey_Lampje will get a upgrade so they can comminicate with this cloudsolution where my app also communicating with. After this upgrade the old local API is also available so users can choose.

All old models (also known as DX2 or DX3) gettings this update upcomming months and after that the android / apple app is also the new one ( Daikin Residential Controller or the new rebranding name Daikin Onecta)
New Models ( also know as DX4) are only communicating to the cloud solution.

  1. Don’t know i don’t use the current app. see one of the above messages where are functionality’s are written.([APP][DEVELOPMENT] : Daikin Residential Controller / ONECTA - #17 by Mickel_Luiten).

I think you have already received the update if you are using the Daikin Residential Controller app.
Not all features are implented in my app , still in development.
The energy setting of daikin is a different aprroach then the one from Homey, need to check what is the best way to implented this feature.

It’s just a few days ago i spotted the new app, and tried to install it and it worked great. The interesting part is that my electrical consumption from last year also shows in the new app, so somewhere they store this data even if it wasn’t available in the other app.

Here is some images, i don’t know if any of the helps/make sense/is of interest.
