Climate_IP - ClimateDevice for IP based units (not only Samsung AC)

Hi Everyone,

I’ve done a custom component for controlling my Samsung AC unit.
After that I did it more flexible and I think that it’s ready to work with other IP controlled devices.

At this moment component supports:

  • Samsung AC units available at port 8888 (new generation, REST API)
  • Samsung AC units available at port 2878 (old generation, socket communication)
  • Samsung MIM-H03 controller support is on the go (thanks to @kirichkov)

Support for any unit working with REST API can be easily added via YAML configuration file.

If anyone is interested you can find it on GitHub

Support for mim-h03_heatpump.yaml already added.

Hi @SebuZet,

the constant errors on polling have stopped. However, occasional errors are occuring when the AC happens to issue an unsolicited <Update Type="Status"> while the polling is waiting for a <Response Type="DeviceState" Status="Okay"><DeviceState>

The AC sends these <Update Type="Status"> whenever there is a change to any of its Attributes (including from the IR remote)

Would it be possible to use these updates rather than constantly poll?

here is an example of an unsolicited message from the AC
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?><Update Type="Status"><Status DUID="1441E051EADF11" GroupID="AC" ModelID="AC"><Attr ID="AC_FUN_TEMPNOW" Value="24" /></Status></Update>

We can try to do this but keep in mind that I don’t have a device working on port 2878 so it can be a little more harder than usual :wink:

Understood.
Appreciate the amount of effort you’ve already put into this. If it’s too much of a diversion, maybe leave it for now.

@Jman Can you check device response message after sending some command (E.g. after changing desired temperature or changing mode)?

Here you go…

@Jman I’ll do something with those messages. I noticed that there is a different duid in first response. Do you have two devices or it is connected with something else?

I hastily changed it to hide my real one :wink:
“Missed it by that much”

Hi,
Im trying to set up the device in HA but Im constantly having this error:

Error while setting up platform climate_ip

@Jman,
Can you try my last vdersion from dev barch
Please let me know if it is working

@csirk51 Which HASS version are you using?

Just updated to 0.90.2

Sorry @SebuZet, latest dev version was unsuccessful. See errors below.
I am on HA 0.90.2

@Jman Sorry for that. I’ve fixed an issue. Can try once more time?
@csirk51 How did you install component. You have to do as follow:

  • Create folder climate_ip in /custom_components folder (in docker it should looks as follow: /config/custom_components/climate_ip/
  • download all files from GitHub and put them in newly created folder (only files, without samungrac folder)

Can you show your directory structure?

Finally I got it working. I have a really messed up dir structure, the problem was with some faulty linking.
Thanks for the help and many thanks for the repo!

@csirk51 That’s great. Which device are you using? With old API or the new one?
Br,

@Jman, Hi thanks. It’s strange. I thought I don’t need to call get status with this solution. Can you please try to uncomment line 13 in samsung_2878.yaml file? Right now it looks like this:

#connection_template: ‘<Request Type=“DeviceState” DUID="{{duid}}"></Request>’

and it should looks like below:

connection_template: ‘<Request Type=“DeviceState” DUID="{{duid}}"></Request>’

What kind of spelling error did you found? I don’t have such device and I don’t have a possibility to test it at home.

Has the custom components folder changed on recent releases? I’ve to stay with 0.70 since the new auth don’t work under a reverse proxy basic auth.

If I place this component under custom_components/climate_ip, it seems is not loading at all:

2019-03-31 17:43:54 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.loader] Unable to find component climate.climate_ip

If this component is placed in custom_components/climate/climate_ip it loads, but then I face an error related to an attribute called “setup_platform”
