Daikin SkyFi Plugin

Hi,

Daikin in Australia offers a wifi controller for its ducted split system air conditioners called SkyFi. See: http://www.daikin.com.au/skyfi.

Their smartphone app is slow and clunky and relies on access to their central server, so I am investigating the possibility of an Indigo plugin. However, my software skills are zero, so there's no hope of doing the development myself :(

I have however, tracked down a documented API for the system here:

https://github.com/zoot1612/plugin-daikin-skyfi/blob/master/DaikinSkyfiAPI

I have undertaken limited validation via browser requests, so I'm on the right track (I think!)

Is anyone keen (or crazy) enough to tackle this? My fallback alternative is to send http requests (I have managed to do so for a few other but much less complex devices)

TIA and regards

Re: Daikin SkyFi Plugin

Hi,

Whilst the development of a plugin is beyond my technical abilities and time availability at present, I have successfully prepared a suite of (probably inelegant!) Python scripts that permits limited operation of the Daikin AC system via the SkyFi interface.

An extract from my control page showing the AC is attached.

These scripts are called by Indigo actions and are limited to Heat and Cool On, Off, and status update. If time (and cognitive function) permits, it is my intention to try my hand at a plugin - but please do not hold your breath!!

If the scripts are of interest/use, I am happy to post - but be aware they will require some edits (network address, passwords) and the manual creation of Indigo actions and variables to suit your system.
