So, I just made my AC (Toshiba Daiseikai) really smart!

AirPatrol AC WiFi remote with IR sensor. No need to change anything at all.

Here is the only thing you need: http://www.airpatrol.eu/shop/airpatrol-wifi/

It was super easy and now I can control my AC and heatpump from away and set it to a schedule that will lower the heat during hours of sleep or when we are not at home.

Here is my normal schedule.

  • 22.30-06.00 Night 17 Degrees (save mode)
  • 06.00-08.00 Morning 22 degrees (heat mode)
  • 08.00-15.00 work day (save mode)
  • 15.00-22.30 at home (heat mode)

You can override it at any time with the app.

Drawbacks:

  • It needs power, hence you need to set it up close to an outlet. Its not a standard 220V socket, instad it uses a “cellphone” charger. so cabling can be an issue.
  • It uses IR with your AC unit, so it needs to be in line of sight of the unit.
