GE Window A/C - SmartHQ

Just picked up three GE windows A/C units. They connect to their SmartHQ system via WiFi. It appears there is an API. Anyone know any details? Binding? Seems the SmartHQ can control any newer GE device from hot water heater… to expresso maker! lol

I just came across these GE A/C units too (not purchasing… yet? Still looking for other solutions). I have some GE z-wave switches that are rock solid so do like their products. A SmartHQ binding probably would be a win since its more than a one trick pony.

I’m developing the binding for LG API Smart Thinq and it’s very stable. The support for A/C is ready to control target temperature,operation mode, some special functions and fan speed. You can follow it at the topic https://community.openhab.org/t/contribution-lg-thinq-binding

No kidding? Well that is even better news since LG is my go to brand!

I’ll read through your thread but basically what you are saying is yourn binding would support this:

Is that correct?

Yes, dude. Since your device supports LG Thinq integration, you are able to use LG Thinq binding.

But, i’ve never tried integrate with this window model. It has a really good chance to works out of the box, but if need some changes to works, i can do it.

@shady9191 , i think there is no binding natively for GE Window AC. But reading the data sheet from your device, i noticed its ready to ifttt integration. Openhab is almost ready to integrate to ifttt devices, but for the newest versions, its not enabled by default. Maybe you need some effort to be it to working, but i think it would be worth.
