Does Sensibo include a database of the supported units?
Not from what I can understand, there is an on-line database which the device accesses when you configure your A/C or heat pump… There is also a compatibility list of supported Air cons and devices on the Sensibo site that can be checked prior to purchase. However if they do not have yours then it seems its best to ask as they will add devices fast if they are compatible.
can you tech it with original remote?
No, this device has one function in life and it is to work simply and well with air conditiors and heatpumps. The ‘Teaching’ is simply aiming your existing remote at the unit and pressing the power button, from that it determines the make and model of your air conditioner and sets it all up in the android or IOS app.
Takes but a moment.
The devices I am aware of for generic playback of IR commands are Logitect Harmony (which I have loath) yes that is a strong word. The iTech IP to IR which I have no experience of at all, and the BroadLink device which I understand is quite good but never had one so cannot comment.
If you press a button on the remote will it read it and change the status of the item in OH?
If I use the A/C remote then I as long as the Sensibo unit is placed correctly it will also receive the IR command and will feed that change back to the mobile app, I must confess I have not yet checked to see if the OH2 data gets updated as well, with current timeout issue experience I have stopped my investigations until its reliable on the network.
I found a suggestion to include less digits in the coordinates
The air quality is bugging me too, what length did you prune the coordinates to in order to workaround the current issue?
Has anyone done any work on integrating Genesis Energypower data to the OH2 or even simply iframes to the BasicUI sitemap would be a start?
The sensibo sky video on youtube is really useful to get a handle on what it does and hoow to set it up
