Daikin has an optional wifi card, which allows you to control A/C unit with an "app".

Any plans on a Homey App ??

  • Tip is to find out if it has an api Homey can address. Most of these devices will not be supported by Athom so you gonna need to find someone to make it for the community.
  • If it has a wificard then you can probably send http-requests to it with the http-app....
  • It has a wi-fi card, only I don't have the knowledge to make it  :D
  • maybe via IFTTT, daikin is already inluded there...

    There's accually a REST API here https://github.com/ael-code/daikin-control I'm using it to control my two daikin heatpumps from my Fibaro HC2, but i'm selling it and getting a homey instead.  :-)


  • There's also a Python library https://github.com/ael-code/daikin-aricon-pylib and a Java Library https://bitbucket.org/JonathanGiles/jdaikin

    I'm not a developer, and would be super thankful if someone with the required skills had a look at this. :)

  • Well, looks quite doable... In the meanwhile I woiuld certainly go with IFTTT, looking at the code you could also use the http-app.
  • Thanks! I'll have a look at the http-app.
  • Anyone working on this?
    Would love the see this app!

    I would rather get a remotec zxt-120 or 600 as this will be supported soon than wait for this app.
    Used to control my Daikin with zxt-120 and Fibaro HC2.
  • I would also want an app for this
     :) 
  • I'm not a developer, but using http-app and GET card with these get commands work if you want to integrate control in flows. (Replace xxx with your daikin ip address)

    Chill the room to 18 degrees.

    Heat the room to 20 degrees.
    http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:80/aircon/set_control_info?pow=1&mode=4&stemp=20&shum=0&f_rate=A&f_dir=3

    Turn heatpump off.

  • I am working on a Daikin Airconditioner App for Homey... if and when I succeed it will be available on my Github page.

    Little teaser picture...

  • @Homey_Lampje Thank you for starting this.
    By the look of it the z-wave Remotec zxt-120 integration has stalled and it might never happen  :(
    Soon as I hear that your app is on Github, I will head to the store and buy the wifi card for my air con. And of course send you some beers!!
  • @Homey_Lampje thank you! Have been waiting for someone to start this. I currently own a Daikin Emura 2 with a wifi card, and I am really looking forward to seeing your work!

    Still a lot of work to be done... but the basics are there. I can retrieve the airco its settings and show these settings on a mobile card as shown on the photo. Started working on flows...

    @jaykay I also have an Emura 2, as said the app is in development and in its current development state useless! but it is on Github... https://github.com/PeterEIER/nl.climate.daikin. Use the development branch, the master branch should for now not be used.

    Note: the app is currently checking for experimental homey firmware 1.5.6... if you are not running this experimental firmware the app won’t install. I will change it this weekend so that is runs with the current stable firmware.

    Nice! Thank you @Homey_Lampje ;
    Keep up the good work and post a donation link.



    P.S. I have an older 'L' series Daikin which does not read the outside temperature. Neither in the D-Mobile app. Also via the Wifi module cannot control the fan or the side to side vanes. Only via the remote. But I don't mind.
  • @danone I will first create a driver which can be used for all models. This driver will eventually expose all of Daikin its API capabilities regardless of the model connected. I will later implement model specific drivers so that Homey only shows capabilities that are actually supported by a specific model. The goal is to support at least the “generic”-type, which I identify as “Inverter”, the Emura and Nexura series.

    It sounds like a good plan. Thank you, Sir!
  • Awesome! Have installed and tested now. Keep up the good work! 
    What will it take to make this work with Homekit? 
    I have the app Homekit installed on my Homey, and when I add «inverter» the Home app on my iPhone shows it at «not supported».
  • @jakay what it takes to make it work with Apple Homekit I do not now. When the app itself  is working I could have a look into that also. For now l will concentrate on the basics... which is for me as a hobbyist programmer more than complicated enough ;-)
  • Making progress with my Daikin AC app....

    To prioritise my development I would like to know what kind of flowcards (triggers, conditions and/or actions) are needed... send me a PM with your suggestions if you like.

  • mbnnmbnn Member
    @Homey_Lampje any update on your project? :) Cant wait to be able to add my airco :) Will it also support Homeykit? 
    Would love to be able to let it work together with the thermostat (Nest) for example. If temperature is above 24, switch airco on cooling or something like that :) Got a Daikin with WIFI module here.
  • @mbnn its on github... you can have a look / do a test ride.

    Homekit is not yet supported, or let me rephrase Homekit does not support my Daikin AC app... it takes two to tango in this case. 

    Use the versikn that is in the beta branch!
  • When is the app available? And is there a donation link? 
  • The app is available on GitHub... still not sure if I ever will publish it to Athom's Appstore... I simply do not have the time to play the role of "Helpdesk"... but yeah I also understand that I will probably make at least some people happy if I would. At the moment I still have a few additional flowcards to add before the app is finished. I will make up my mind about publishing in the next week or so.

    When I publish it to Athom's Appstore a PayPal donation button will be available.
  • That would be great. I support people who do their best. At this moment I am testing with Homey myself. This is because I am doing a lot of work (renovation). Then I can hopefully run my Hue, Daikin & Magnum (and other peripherals) from one dedicated source ;) Greetings to Willie Wortel

    Saw on github you have puplished it to homey app store.
    Thank you soooooo much.
    Will also donate as soon as it is available.

    Lampje, are these device(s) supported ?
