I’m Vincent, from France and i am very happy to join the community ! We are currently building our house and we plan to install Home assistant for controling shutters (Z-Wave Fibaro), venetians (Z-Wave Fibaro) and the heating system.
We plan to install a heat Pump Daikin Altherma 3 (ALTHERMA ERGA04DV), connected to a heating floor at the first floor, and to water heaters at the second floor. The heat pump works only in heating, not cooling. If possible, we would like to integrate control of the heating system into Home Assistant.
We’ve seen that some Daikin A/C were compatible with AssIO (https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/daikin/), but the article doesn’t mention Altherma Heat Pump.
We plan to buy a Madoka thermostat (BRC1HHDW) and we can add a LAN card (BRP069A62) to the heat pump to connect it to DAIKIN ONLINE CONTROLLER.
Does anyone use this kind of configuration ? Do you know if it is compatible with Home Assistant ?
I’ve seen, we could also connect a Z-Wave thermostat (such as Netatmo or other) to the heat pump, but as far as possible, i would prefer to keep Daikin hardware to keep internal regulation and avoid a switch On/switch Off regulation that doesn’t look so optimal from the energy consumption point of view.
Thanks for your help and advices !
