Announcing Pre-Release Daikin Wifi Controller Plugin

Hi all,
I have this working with my newly installed unit. You can find the details https://github.com/neilkplugins/Daikin-Wifi-indigo-plugin it is pretty self explanatory as it largely adopts the standard thermostat device and actions. This is an alpha version and will have issues but they should be minor, please feed back. I need to refine some of the image state settings but otherwise it should be fully functional. I will also look to add support for power consumption and special operations. If you have one of the wifi controllers that requires https then the basis for support for this is in the plugin, but I cannot test it. Also I cannot switch my unit to Fahrenheit to test the switching but it should be fine, again let me know of any issues.

First release is https://github.com/neilkplugins/Daikin-Wifi-indigo-plugin/releases/tag/0.0.2-Alpha

Please do let me know how you get on.

Neil

Second test release. This version makes the "timeout" for status requests to the wifi controller configurable and increases the default. It also corrects a bug that I didn't trap the error properly if a sensor info api request timed out causing a plugin restart.

The timeout configuration is in the plugin config from the plugin menu.

https://github.com/neilkplugins/Daikin-Wifi-indigo-plugin/releases/tag/0.0.3-Alpha

Thanks to Patrick for the feedback and help.

Neil

Re: Announcing Pre-Release Daikin Wifi Controller Plugin

The third test release is now available https://github.com/neilkplugins/Daikin-Wifi-indigo-plugin/releases/tag/0.0.4-beta. This is now close to be ready to release to the plugin store.

Documentation is now done and at https://github.com/neilkplugins/Daikin-Wifi-indigo-plugin/wiki


This release adds the following :-

- Configurable timeout for the api requests, the Wifi controller appears to intermittently time out through the day. This should address this and I will monitor
- Support for the energy usage reporting from the controller
- Various tweaks, typos corrections and code improvements

Note: As this updated the device to support energy reporting you may need to edit and save the device configuration for devices created with the earlier version. Custom sates will update automatically, but you will see the error about AccumEnergy key not existing until you do that for each device

The latest test release is https://github.com/neilkplugins/Daikin-Wifi-indigo-plugin/releases/tag/0.0.7-beta this is hopefully now very close and includes documentation. Patrick reported an issue with an earlier version applying changes which I believe this resolves, but I haven't seen confirmation yet as I could not replicate the error.

This version (and any minor subsequent updates) will now be tested prior to a potential release to the plugin store, but should now be reasonably considered complete.

Re: Announcing Pre-Release Daikin Wifi Controller Plugin

This should be the final pre-release version (with a following wind). No need to upgrade from 0.0.7 as no new functionality, just better commented code and simplified logging.

If you are new to this the for completeness try this version https://github.com/neilkplugins/Daikin-Wifi-indigo-plugin/releases/tag/0.1.1-beta

Will publish to the plugin store in due course.
