Today I switched my domotica system from OpenHAB to HA, mostly because of the lack of integration for Haier products that were installed a few weeks ago (1x AS50XCAHRA, 1x AS35XCAHRA, 2x AS25XCAHRA)
I now use this integration and was succesfull setting it up.
There is 1 thing I miss and that is the possibility to turn off the temperature display on the unit (or maybe I overlook it).
Is that something that can be added?
Since I’m using the add-on of @gvigroux (not the one of @Andre0512), I have to login to my hOn app on my iPhone. Has this something to do with the installation of it or has the app been changed on the iPhone in the last few months?
I need to use the iPhone app as I can turn off the wine cellar, which is impossible with the HA add-on.
As far as I know, this is not possible with both hOn add-ons.
Which one of the add on is the best to use nowadays?
The hOn servers only stores the last 5 sessions, so after requesting the access token 5 times (gvigroux integration requests it every 6 hours) you get logged out on your phone. (Workaround would be to extend the session instead, so you don’t need a new access token and not get logged out)
If you share me your device data, we can try to add the function to turn it off. Feel free to open an issue.
Announcement: I have to take the project down in the next few days
We are writing to inform you that we have discovered two Home Assistant integration plug-ins developed by you ( GitHub - Andre0512/hon: Home Assistant integration for Haier hOn: support for Haier/Candy/Hoover home appliances like washing machines and air conditioners in 19 languages. and GitHub - Andre0512/pyhOn: Control hOn devices with python ) that are in violation of our terms of service.

Those ‘plugins’ were actually the main reason I considered buying Haier, especially since I’m building a house and needed to make some major purchases. But not anymore.
I’m thinking about starting a company focused on creating hackable devices. Imagine coffee machines, washing machines, dishwashers, HVAC/recu systems, essentially anything that’s open for user customization.
*But realistically, I don’t have the resources or funds to launch such a company right now.
I dont see how this make demage to them, compare to use of hon app, you still consume bandwith on thair end, or am i missing somthing. So release local api and resolve bandwith problems if this make so much financial strain
App probably makes API calls only when it’s open while HA must poll for updates all the time.
Even if that wasn’t the case, when HA makes an API call, it does just that - it does not serve you useless ads. Or gather statistics about who-knows-what.
Haier goal is NOT making it easy and functioal for the customer. Their goal is making money. Whether they can see that they could make more money by releasing API documentation properly (like HomeConnect (Bosch, AEG) does) or at least allowing reverse engineered API to work silently (like LG ThinQ does), it’s up to them.
