@acetone it just simply mimics the remote which is one direction anyway.

 

 

I think most heat pump remote controls are actually two way. This allows the lcd display of the remote to show the status of the heat pump rather than just say what state it (the remote) thinks it should be.

 

 

I don't think so.  The Daikon wifi controller app will show me settings made with the remote, but not the reverse.

 

If the temp is set at 20, and I hit the temp up button on the remote to take it to 23 but block the IR signal, the LCD shows 23, but the unit is still set on 20. If I unblock it and again press the temp up button, then it sets to 24 - so the remote system is smart enough to send a temperature setting rather than just up/down signal, but it's not two-way.

Yep they just send an IR Packet which is an encoded string including time, date, temperature, heating/cooling, fan speed, vane etc. Not 2 way.

So the installer came back yesterday to install the Wifi module. Very happy with it. The weekly timer through the App gives much better control and is easier to use than trying to set the weekly timer via a remote. I haven't tried it from outside my home network yet but I'm sure it will be fine.

I have a Daikin Cora with the wifi module. I like the way ot works. While at home it works instantly over wifi, so basically never use the infrared remote as there always a smartphone or tablet nearby. The functions I like are that I can see the actual indoor and outdoor temperatures at home from anywhere. The schedule timer is very good and easy to use, I set an off time each day so that it switches off at 9 am when the wife and kids head off to school etc, the heat pump is never left on by accident. With the early starts when the Americas Cup was on we were setting it to turn on at 4.30am and off at 8am.

Are you able to provide me with the link to the euro apk please?

I've ordered the BRP069A42 pretty confident that it would work on my cora but had a feeling Daikin would have a trick up their sleeve.

Looks like Daikin is supported by ToniA's Arduino heatpump library on GitHub. ToniA/arduino-heatpumpir

If your wifi interface doesn't show up you can build your own.
