Control and monitor your Daikin Ducted Air Conditioner from your iOS smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi or internet.
This "Airbase" app will provide the majority of functions already available via the Daikin wall mounted remote control panel.
Standard functions such as On/Off, temperature, fan speed and mode of operation are easily set or monitored via the App.
Additional functions such as easy set On/Off timers, Push notification, Interactive setup wizard, Dealer contact details and maintenance functions are also provided.
Depending on the model of air conditioner, indoor and outdoor temperature is also displayed.
If a Daikin Zone Controller is fitted to the air conditioner, the naming and remote control of zone dampers is also supported.
The zone control functionality also requires the Daikin Air Conditioner to be fitted with a Daikin Zone Controller (model BRC24Z4A, BRC24Z8A, BRC230Z4A or BRC230Z8A) along with associated zone control dampers.
This application requires a compatible Daikin Air Conditioner fitted with Daikin Wireless LAN Connecting Adapter (BRP15B61).
The App and Adapter also supports Daikin light commercial (Sky Air) split systems such as under-ceiling and cassette models.
If the indoor unit has a swing louver function, the App will recognise this and provide an additional air flow direction button and indication symbol.
Re-organised the screen layout for the latest iOS devices.
Ratings and Reviews
Slow app - not very Daikin
In the hope that app developers at Daikin (or whoever they contract) read these reviews, I’ll repeat the problems which need to be addressed. The app is slow to be functional , as it seems to scan for wifi adaptors each time the app is opened or you go back to the main page. Also the lack of home assistant integration is also disappointing; please introduce google and Alexa functionality. And finally, the latest update has caused the on/off and fan speed buttons to be cut off on the bottom of the screen. So, these three problems Need to be addressed. Once done, the app will be just as good as the system. But until then, the app drags down the usability of the whole air conditioner.
Real disappointment for price
I paid to get smart control of my Air conditioning, but this app is an embarrassment to the otherwise quality reputation of the Daikin brand. It is not what I expect from a quality brand. The app is very basic, unreliable out of home and slow to connect every time you open it. It does allow you to operate the controls from your phone but absolutely no IFTTT, Apple Home, Alexa or Google integration. Seems good enough for overseas versions of their brand but not Australia. This is not a cheap upgrade that seems to fall short with performance and integration. I would expect integration with Google and Alexa as a minimum for the price. Feels like an app suited to the past that has not kept up with the times, but still costing as if it is modern. Either be clearer with advertising, info on websites, or better yet, just update the software/firmware to enable modern integration.
Slow, basic functionality
It’s strange that such a reputable company would sell a multi hundred $$ unit and accompany it with this app. As everyone else has flagged, it’s very slow to access the unit (on wifi or otherwise) and has limited functionality.
The July 2021 update has now also partially obscured the on/off and fan speed buttons which really makes the whole thing a bit of a joke.
I was reticent to buy the airbase unit after reading these reviews. In the end I bit the bullet - I’m still glad I got it but the app really is borderline and Daikin really should invest the time and resources in a new system.
