Sendo A/C unit with Wifi Control (BroadLink_OEM-T1)

I have 2 AUX Air Conditioners, both working flawlessly through AC Freedom app, but when I try to use your app I also end up with “Authentication failed to AC” error. Any tips for troubleshooting?

I have to apologize for the slow responses on the Dev of this. also, I don’t follow this thread at all, I just found it google for the other HA plugin that someone made based on my code, in the hope it might resolve the current issues.

It was very much a clobbered together project to make my own 2 units work with openhab. the HA was just a fun addon I did cause people asked.

It seems like the Aux units have either fixed there Auth part, or change the way the talk .

Some people are having issues with comms as there local network don’t allow broadcast UDP traffic, so just make sure that is allowed. On some devices one need to enable/install the helper for this, you can test this by disabling the internet and check if the AC Freedom app still works. If the AC freedom app don’t work without internet, the broadlink_ac_mqtt won’t ever worked as its purley lan only.

Hi guys, I have AUX AC too, can someone tell me what and where should I run to get it working with home assistant?
I’m using hassio on my rpi4. So can I run ac2mqtt on it? Or I shall use separate rpi with linux installed with docker etc.???

How on earth do i send mqtt packets for Display for example.
Publishing a package using the bellow and sending the value ON does nothing. But when i listen to the value it picks it up correctly.

/aircon/c8f742348bec/display/set

Really? Why cant i set fixation_v ? Is this a limitation of the integration, or something else?

Guys I made a complete tutorial on how to set it up here: Broadlink AC Integration (AUX, Dunham, Rcool, Akai, Rinnai, Kenwood, Tornado, Ballu)

I just set this up and thought I would share the pitfalls I fell into.

I am running the docker (https://github.com/broadlink-ac/broadlink_ac_mqtt_docker) on unraid and connecting it to HASSOS running in a VM. I ahve a couple of rinnai AC units that are controllable with the AC freedom app.

Andremain’s guide was useful for trouble shooting. Thanks :slight_smile:

My pitfalls:

  • the config.yaml for the docker doesnt seem to parse passwords with symbols correctly. This prevented the docker from connecting to the MQTT broker. changing the password to alphanumeric characters resolved it.
  • My AC units werent being discovered. Using MQTT explorer I could see the docker was connected to the MQTT broker but no data was being passed. I assume this is due to having the AC units on a different vlan and UDP not being passed between the networks. Manually adding the devices to the dockers config.yaml didnt fix it. But thankfully someone earlier in this thread had solved the issue. Change self discovery to false. All sorted.

My last issue is getting the ac unit temp to appear as a sensor in home assistant. I can control them using love lace but want to do some basic datalogging. Still new to Home assistant.

Thanks to any and all that worked on the code to make this possible.

I’ve set this up in docker desktop but from the logs it is just looping with these errors:
Set the network to host.

hi, i know its a old post, but if u could, i need ur help, i have 2 ac unitsone buyed about 3-4 years ago whit broadlink wifi module,working perfectly whit ur script monitor.py
the other one,same model but newer, cant be discover, i tried mqtt explorer, i could see topics in /aircon but 0 topics from this one.
my question is, how could i know about topic i must search for new ac?

I also get this issue. I’m a new user. Tried installing it a few weeks ago .

monitor stop basicaly if cant find configuration or log file, or if cant found any ac
your ac works whit acfredoom?
look at propierties of ur ac in app and look if he shows and [email protected]
if not probably u have newwer units and this script didnt work

Any idea why?

Looks like you are missing the c compiler or at least the path to it. I would run the installer for gcc to see it will resolve that issue. If gcc is installed then adding the installed location to the path environment variable should do it.

Thanks, I’m pretty new to this so I’m trying to make sense of it all.
I’ve noticed that I do not have gcc. Can you point me to how to run the installer?

PS.
I’m running this install on a Raspberry 4b:
haos_rpi4-64-7.0.img.xz (github.com)

Yeah I get the same other than the Errno -3 error code. My aircon doesn’t use the ACFreedom app, rather the Home Comfort app, but thought I’d try it out as it uses a Broadlink Wifi chip as well.

All I receive via MQTT is the value “online” but I’m not sure whether that’s just the script/container that’s online or whether its an aircon.

is it possible to make an integration with the help of this homebridge integration

I am also asking for help

We need this integration because many AC brands use the same app

Hello!
Maybe my code will help you.

I reversed AUX-based air conditioner protocol and made esphome component.
It is possible to drive AC from Home Assistant with DIY dongle (simple esp8266/esp32 + DC-DC + couple resistors).

Component source code is published on github.
