Error setting up Daikin airco


While setting up my Daikin airco I’m only getting 2 sensor entities and no climate entity…

In the logs I can see the following:

Could someone help me or know what’s wrong? I’m doing the setup via the app

Here are the two entities, apparently the climate one is unavailable?

Have you checked if your device is supported?

How do I know the WiFi controller? Cannot see it on the sticker with info:

Based on that website, it seems your wired controller type is BRC073A1.

The supported hardware listed on the documentation starts with BRP……

Additional suggestion:

It is listed that you also have IR remote, therefore you may want to try see this guide. Basically you create IR remote (can work as a transmitter and receiver) that can be integrated to HA via ESPHOME.

Thanks for the reply! I’ll have a look into that!
