Looking at getting a new heatpump for other end of the house which will have one of these on it, also considering retrofitting to the existing one.

 

Did anyone ever get any further on getting these to work locally without a remote server?

Mitsubishi only work through their server so you get about a minute of time lag. We have one set up at work. I just put a Daikin Cora in my house with Wi-Fi. The Daikin is different in that while you are at home it works directly between your device and the heat pump via Wi-Fi so response is instant. When away from home you log in to the Daikin server to operate it, no idea what the response time is.
The apps are both very similar in functionality except Daikin doesn't have the rules setup but can't see that I'd ever use that.

@richms Did you ever actually get around to playing with that WiFi remote that you got off Aliexpress? I'm still keen to get one to play with but I'm waiting for you to tell me how dodgy it is first!

I put it away as I was moving my unboxing desk to the shed and then the builders decided to do the shed so its still put away.

I'll happily test it for you if you know where it is. smile

Which one are you looking at? @michaelmurfy has my broadlink one for testing (I couldn't get the blasted thing to even connect to the wifi...). You're welcome to have a play with that if he's done with it.

@sbiddle I'd suggest trying the Broadlink first (I could bring it into town) as most heatpump remotes do a IR blast which sends all the settings in an encoded form. I've found the Broadlink had to be manually programmed for my Mitsubishi heatpump. Ended up buying another Raspberry Pi Zero to emulate WiFi control as per this post but also bought another broadlink.

As an FYI, I know of a heatpump technician who uses this broadlink with a Mitsubishi heat pump successfully. I do not know about ease of use etc etc.

I have the Mitsi Wifi control. My issue is that it uses the old Wifi security, which is very frustrating as I need an old WAP just for that. There is a minutes delay, but it's not a big deal to me. 

 

I really rate having Wifi control, but wish it had stats I could refer to etc.

 

One for my Panasonic would be ideal. 

 

I would buy another Mitsubishi Heatpump in a heart beat. I'd never buy another Fujitsu.
