Does the job but should be better
User interface is lacking in attention to detail. Eg, while loading, do NOT show me temperatures from last time I ran the app hours or days ago! Items that are not currently available (eg while connecting to server) should be greyed out or feint so they don’t look live.
Connecting to the out-of-home server is unreliable and can take an inexplicably long time. If I completely kill the app and start it again, then it connects reliably and quickly. (So what is it doing differently those other times???)
App works well and it does as advertised
I’ve just had the new R32 Daikin multi-head unit put in today (March 2020). (The remote control is very nice and modern looking now.)
The app works very well on the Wifi LAN and was very easy to both pair with or WiFi using the WPS button method and to add each unit into my phone. It didn’t have all the features, but the main ones are there. If you need the others, get up of the couch, find the remote and set it.
The controller apparently now works with IFTTT so you can use google/Alexa etc. I’ve not used that yet, but it was definitely a bonus point for me.
Enabling the not at home Feature worked well. I liked that when I went to add the second head unit it asked if I wanted to copy the credentials of the first unit, I said yes and it worked well.
Whilst it’s not awesome that it takes 5 mins or so when using the not at home Feature, it dies say in the app that it’s not instant. If you’re not at home,(whilst I can’t understand why it works that way and why it can’t be quicker) the delay doesn’t bother me much (yet at least). And if you want to turn it on when you’re so close by that it would matter, your at the end of the street driving home etc.... you shouldn’t be using your phone whilst driving anyway!
All up it’s quite good and does pretty much what I was expecting and hoping it would do.
App is Garbage
Paid $675 for three WiFi adapters for three air conditioners. App works well as an expensive remote, but only when within home WiFi. My main requirement - controlling the units over internet - does not work at all. App htells me on login that either my phone or the router at home, or both have no internet access. A primitive lie, because at the same time internet applications are running faultlessly both on the phone and on computers connected through the same home router. Daikin, can’t you please pay someone to design a decent app? At this point I am $675 out of pocket.
Update: five weeks wait for a Daikin technician. Turns out app has undocumented setup steps. After setup 3 minutes delay between command and execution. Turns out that every time I want to switch my AC remotely on or off in Australia, the app has to go through a server in Singapore. Counterintuitive garbage. One half of one star.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
