Ratings and Reviews
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.
A generous 4 stars
I really like Daikin so 4 stars is a bit much really.
I wanted the Daikin App so we can monitor the use of a new Daikin aircon that we put in a rental share house that we pay the electricity bill for.
Getting the wifi connection between phone and aircon wasn’t easy for me, I just seemed to get stuck with something like “ if step 2 doesn't work the go back to step 1”
And around and around ,,,,
I got the technicians to look at it and after a bit of effort they got it.
But both them and me weren’t sure about being able to use the App away from the house.
A few days later with help from a very helpful lady at the Daikin office we got the “Out of home,,, Away from Home”function working.
Everything is easy once you know how “ : )
The time delay between using the app and the aircon responding feels like forever if I sit and watch it.
Actually between 3 and 5 minutes and sometimes much quicker
But it does seem to be Reliable
And it’s doing it’s job.
One other downside is having to log in again after 10 or 20 minutes.
Saving the login details and a bit of practice does help speed this process up.
It would be nice if Daikin acknowledged all the reviews here, even if they just admitted its not their best work.
I’m guessing they sell by far the majority of their Aircons without the App controller so it’s probably not a priority
Could be Better
