Wi-fi app to control minisplit systems
there have been a few different ways of achieving wifi / app / remote control of mini split systems, most all proprietary and quite expensive.
I came across one I haven’t seen / thought of.and couldnt find here on a search
instead of directly controlling the mini-split via wifi, this method is to directly control a third party IR transmitter, in line of sight of the mini split, by wifi/app.
the IR transmitter then communicates with the IR mini split receiver
So the app will then duplicate all the remote control’s buttons.
for example –[not affiliated] sensibo– which also has multi zone and scheduling options for $130ish
you still need one sensibo per mini split, but it also seems it integrates with alexa and google home.
or for remote wifi/app control– but not scheduling, they are a bunch of brands for $30+ or so
anyone using this method?
hope that helps
