MrCool (see entry with my name in the table for details) - replaced USB Wifi Module with ESP-01 on UART adapter board (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M09B43H/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) - all work outside. Added IR Led to add option to disable AC’s display and for follow me option.
Connected to the unit using cable terminated with USB plug, modified to have required notches - using flat soldering iron :slight_smile:



Note: Updated for a new Midea component:

To keep the table readable, I added a link to your post. Is that easy enough to find for others? Let me know what you think! :slight_smile:

That’s perfect!

Only issue I’m having is that ECO mode turns off when changing temps via ESPHome.

The model number is of the indoor unit. I suppose the indoor unit is the important part here, but just in case the outdoor unit is relevant, it is MOBA30-12HDN1-QC2.

I followed the dev thread on Telegram, and it seems that is how it’s supposed to work…

Manufacture ,Model, Year , Region,Notes
MrCool DIY ,DIY-18-WMAH-HP-230A,2019,US, flash and plug and play with Sergey’s Dongle
Alpine Air “Blueridge”,BM18MCD,2020,US, requires the wifi Smart Pod for dongle.
Alpine Air “Blueridge”, BM12MCCG,2020,US, requires the wifi Smart Pod for dongle.

Special note on the wifi “SMARTPODS”
You need to initialize the original smartkit dongle to send a wakeup string to the pod.
Once that happens the light will turn on the pod indicating it’s listening. the far left you can see the white LED i’m talking about.

With the light on. you can simply swap out for the Midea Dongle and it will start working.

All Works well, no major issues… Thanks all for your effort in making this possible!

Special notes:
I’m going to see if I can capture the wakeup string to include in the project and possibly avoid this step.
Had to take my board out of the Pod to get the dongle to fit. working on a 3d Printable case for it to go into. will update once that’s available.

That makes no sense though. It doesn’t do that with the IR remote and I’m fairly sure it didn’t with the Midea app as well, although it’s been a while since I’ve used it.

Does it have to make sense?
The manual is a bit vague about it

But devs are still discussing/arguing how it should work exactly…
