Climate_IP - IP based climate device for Home Assistant

Implementation of ClimateDevice for controlling IP based AC units. This component is able to work with any AC unit which can be controlled with REST API. At this moment it is configured to work with:

  • Samsung AC units available at port 8888 (new generation, REST API)
  • Samsung AC units available at port 2878 (old generation, socket communication)
  • Samsung MIM-H03 controller (REST API, port 8888)

Support for any unit working with REST API can be easily added via YAML configuration file.

Installation

  1. Download all files from repo to newly created folder
  2. move folder custom_components/climate_ip to your <ha_configuration_folder>
  3. In configuration.yaml file add section:
    • For new generation units (REST API, port 8888)
      - platform: climate_ip
        config_file: 'samsungrac.yaml'
        ip_address: 'device_ip'
        token: 'token'
        cert: 'ac14k_m.pem'
      
    • For MIM-H03 controller (REST API, port 8888)
      - platform: climate_ip
        config_file: 'mim-h03_heatpump.yaml'
        ip_address: 'device_ip'
        token: 'token'
        cert: 'ac14k_m.pem'
      
    • For old generation units:
      - platform: climate_ip
        config_file: 'samsung_2878.yaml'
        ip_address: 'device_ip'
        token: 'token'
        cert: 'ac14k_m.pem' #set as '' to skip certificate verification
        mac: 'AB:cd:EF:gh:IJ'
      

Configuration

  1. Configuration parameters:

    Param name description obligatory
    config_file YAML configuration filename Yes
    ip_address Device IP address (e.g. 192.178.1.200) Yes
    token Access token to the device Yes
    cert_file certificate file name (default: ac14k_m.pem, Use None to not use certification) Usually Yes
    mac MAC address of device For 2878 devices
    name Device name (by default this value is taken from YAML config file) No
    controller Controller type to use (default, and the only one for now: yaml) No
    poll Enable/disable state polling. Default: Taken from YAML config. Enabled for old gen devices No
    debug Enable/disable more debugs. Default: False No
  2. You need to have your device token. Please use google to find a way to get it :-)

  3. YAML configuration You can easily add, remove or modify any device paramter to meet device capabilities. I hope that more detailed specification will be created soon :-D

YAML configuration file syntax

TO DO

Functionality

Functionality depends on yaml configuration file and can be easily changed by editing those files. Currently configuration provides:

  1. For new generation units (REST API, port 8888)
    • turn device on and off
    • sets and reads target/min/max temperatures
    • sets and reads swing direction
    • sets and reads fan level
    • sets and reads fan maximum level
    • sets and reads special mode (2Step, Comfort, Quiet etc)
    • sets and reads good sleep mode
    • turn purify mode on and off
    • turn auto clean mode on and off
    • turn beep mode on and off
    • read current indoor temperature
    • read device configuration
  2. For old generation units
    • turn device on and off
    • sets and reads target temperature
    • sets and reads swing direction (if supported)
    • sets and reads fan level (if supported)
    • sets and reads special mode (Comfort, Quiet etc)
    • turn purify mode on and off (if supported)
    • turn auto clean mode on and off (if supported)
    • read current indoor temperature
    • read device configuration

Using

Default functionality

This component implements Home Assistant ClimateDevice class. Functionality enabled in HA by default:

  • turn device on/off
  • select fan mode
  • select swing mode
  • select target temperatures (min, max and target)

Device specific functions

Device specific functionality is added as extra service called climate.climate_ip_set_property. Every device attribute can be set using this service with proper params.

{
  "entity_id" : "climate.salon_ac",
  "power" : "on",
  "purify" : "on",
  "special_mode" : "comfort"
}

Switches for special functions

To make controllig device as easy as possible user can create template switches for operations defined as Switch (please see configuration file). Below is an example of template switch for Purify option

switch:
  - platform: template
    switches:
      purify:
        value_template: "{{ is_state_attr('climate.salon_ac', 'purify', 'on') }}"
        turn_on:
          service: climate.climate_ip_set_property
          data:
            entity_id: climate.salon_ac
            purify: 'on'
        turn_off:
          service: climate.climate_ip_set_property
          data:
            entity_id: climate.salon_ac
            purify: 'off'
