Here is an update from Daikin Belgium after I ask for the status of the API integration
"They are still working on it, but it is going a little slower than planned/expected. The design department has been asked to make an adjustment that has a major impact.
It is currently hoped for early/mid 2023."
Having failed to get my new Daikin installation into HA, I searched for the reason. While the installer said it should, I could get it working. Yesterday, I joined a presentation let by Daikin personel and, off-line, I talk them about my ‘bad’ experience. Today, I finally got the answers to my questions in clear. Here the answer from Daikin:
“There is actually quite a story behind it. HA used the local API that our first Wifi modules had. In itself there is no problem with that.So there is a difference between the first modules A, B version and our so-called 4th generation WiFi modules. The C version.
The difference between the 2 is that the A,B version has a local API and the C version has NO local API.
The C-versions are in the new Perfera and the new Emura devices. Also BRP069C81/82 for sky devices.
We at Daikin Belgium and also Daikin Europe believe that there should be a local API for connection with home automation systems such as HA. Unfortunately Japan is a little more closed and they don’t agree.
Daikin Europe has opened up a cloud API connection for Domotica systems such as Niko home control, but Niko had to sign an NDA for this. So this is impossible for any DIY home automation programmer.
BUT! Daikin Europe is currently working on opening up a cloud API for DIY home automation such as HA.
At the moment it is still a bit stuck at Legal deparment but it should be sorted out soon.
This would mean that HA will also be able to use the punch line API.”
So if the module has a C in it eg BRP069C81, you won’t be able to use the Daikin integration at this moment. All of you who have BRP069A… or BRP069B… are the lucky ones for the moment.
and yes, this is indicated on the HA Daikin page but maybe this makes it clearer and also, there is hope in the near future
