Panasonic Comfort Cloud integration

Btw, can you see inside and outside temperature in app? Because I have only outside temperature there.

Yes, I can see for the “split” units:


The KIT is reporting inside temp only, don’t know why and didn’t notice it before. Will report later regarding KIT unit.

It really seems only the split unit shows outdoor temp if switched off (wifi is on of course).
I have to turn my other kit unit (CS-Z25VKEW + CU-Z25TKE) ON to report the outdoor temp to the comfort cloud app.

Continuing the discussion from Panasonic Comfort Cloud integration:

@YogiBB Thank you for your post as it has helped me get 80% of the way to getting my panasonic air conditioners to talk to openhab but I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “airconditioner.py”, line 100, in
action = sys.argv[1]
IndexError: list index out of range

As this is literally the first time I’ve worked with Python I’m a little stuck. If I run the pcomforcloud script with user and pass I get the command I require eg: pcomforcloud user pass list and I get a list of the 3 air cons.

Any help, and let me know what other info you’ll need would be greatly appreciated. :slight_smile:

It looks like you are missing some parameters while running script.

executeCommandLine('sudo python /home/openhabian/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/airconditioner.py "set" "' + Airconditioner_Power.state.toString + '" "' + Airconditioner_Mode.state.toString + '" "' + Airconditioner_EcoMode.state.toString + '" "' + Airconditioner_Temperature.state + '" "' + Airconditioner_FanSpeed.state.toString + '" "' + Airconditioner_AirSwingVertical.state.toString + '" "' + Airconditioner_AirSwingHorizontal.state.toString + '"', 2000)

Hi Yogi,

Ok, So, I have just spent another 18 hours on it and after editing this post for the 4th time (feel free to look at the history for a laugh), but by talking it out I’m starting to get a handle on it.

I’m just focusing on getting info for now, then I’ll move onto control/

From what I understand it doesn’t matter what argument you pass to it, i.e. status, state, blah (literally blah) as long as you pass one “word” it will get the status, and post it.

I’m doing it from the command line so now I just need to figure out how to get it to run from executeCommandLine because mine isn’t at the moment.

Also a number of options have changed, or are just different in Australia. i.e. Mode has Auto, Dry, Cool, Heat, but there is also fan. So I’ll keep plugging away and see what happens…

Lastly, it looks like it supports only 1 aircon in its current configuration?

I’ll post the final files here if it helps anyone else…

Below are the final versions of what I’m using to connect my Panasonic Air Conditioners to Openhab2. There are current 3 units so you will need to adjust a couple of the files to suit the number of air conditioners you have. I’m sure there is someone smarter than me who can turn that into some sort of array but it’s beyond my coding ability at this point.

If anything is unclear or missing just let me know & I’ll do my best to update it.

Prerequisites

scripts/airconditioner.py

  • Line 103 You’ll need to have the same amount of variables as you do airconditioners e.g. status1, status 2, etc
  • Line 136 You need to have the same 9 lines for each air conditioner with a different name allocated. These will match the names in the items/aircon.items file.

items/aircon.items

  • The switch at the top allows you to get manual updates as Panasonic ComfortCloud is not a push service.
  • Duplicate each aircon for as many as you have, named differently of course.

rules/panaair.rules

  • First rule is a cron to get updates every 30 mins. Feel free to change this to longer or shorter. Be mindful of the 4 second (4000) timeout and make longer if you have more aircons as it give OH2 time to process all the updates as the panasonic serice isn’t fast.
  • Second and Third rules deal with the manual switch (in items file) to get an update whenever you want.
  • Note: You’ll always have 1 aircon minimum and this is what the third rules looks for receiving the update to turn the manual update switch off, watch the naming.

sitemaps/your.sitemap

  • This is just how I setup the user GUI. Feel free to make your own.
    In case you’re wondering I did the horizontal & vertical swing as both a switch & selection just to see which I prefer, and haven’t decided yet.

Hi before I start fiddling with it,
would this script work with OH3?

I don’t see why not as the script posts values directly so unless there’s been a big change in that area it should be fine.

I’ll run up an install of OH this weekend and see what happens with the script as well in case you get stuck, plus I’ll see what’s new in OH3 as well.

Hello Jai, do you have test the script already with OH3 ? It doesn´t work in my setup. Best regards. Martin

Hi Martin,

Sorry, I’ve been away. I have setup an OH3 instance & will install the Pana setup this weekend to see how it goes & post the results back here.

Hi Martin,

Yes there appears to be some migration issues with the rules themselves. The panasonic script & pcomfortcloud work as expected but when I run the update switch I get the following error.

2021-04-18 10:06:16.927 [WARN ] [persistence.jdbc.internal.JdbcMapper] - JDBC::openConnection: no driver available!
2021-04-18 10:06:16.928 [WARN ] [persistence.jdbc.internal.JdbcMapper] - JDBC::openConnection: no driver available!
2021-04-18 10:06:16.928 [WARN ] [jdbc.internal.JdbcPersistenceService] - JDBC::store:  No connection to database. Cannot persist item 'Aircon_Update (Type=SwitchItem, State=ON, Label=Aircon Status, Category=switch)'! Will retry connecting to database when error count:0 equals errReconnectThreshold:0

I’ll keep investigating and let you know what I find.

Hi, yes the script ist working and the “get” commands fills the items. The executecommandline has changed in OH3.This Version works in my Rule to get the status.

rule “AirCon Manual Status Update”
when
Item Aircon_Update changed to ON
then
executeCommandLine(Duration.ofSeconds(20),“python3”,"/etc/openhab/scripts/airconditioner.py",“Status”)
end

Only the “set” commandos doesn´t work in the Rule :frowning:
Thank you for your support. I hope you find a solution.

Hi! I tried you script using OH3 and it seems to read the values, but I get error logs like “ui.internal.items.ItemUIRegistryImpl] - Cannot retrieve item ‘Aircon3_LastUpdate’ for widget org.openhab.core.model.sitemap.sitemap.Text” I don’t know what does it mean :frowning: Thank you for your effort and I hope that you can find how to migrate this great script to OH3.

I see that the error is about the sitemap. Do you get this error when you are viewing a certain page in your sitemap? It might be a that your sitemap wants to display an item that doesn’t exist.

You are right, it comes when i visit the sitemap and view aircon2 or 3. I don’t get this error for aircon1. I’ll have to look deeper.

You say that you read the values. It is possible to control the aircon1 or write the values? When it works can you Show me your OH3 rules? Thank you

Hi! I’ve updated the examples rules for OH3. With this new code reading and controlling the units is working for me, I hope it helps someone.

Did anyone of you try the C# code? (GitHub - bacobart/aircocontroller: Control panasonic comfort cloud ac's)

I am asking because I also own such an air conditioner and I would rather prefer a real binding instead of some scripts. So I though that I could write a binding. So far, there is no-one writing one, right?

Since bindings are written in Java, it is far easier to transfer existing logic from C# to Java than from Python to Java…

Update: maybe the binding should be based on the python script because it’s definitely up-to-date. At least according to this thread

Native binding, still WIP but available for testing here; https://github.com/seime/openhab2-addons/releases/tag/panasonic_wip_1

Please note that I only have a single model to test with, and apparently it is not the most fancy one with all the iAutoX and nanoe whistles. So some channels are missing or read only as I cannot test them.

When you find a bug or a missing feature, please adjust the logging level to DEBUG, mask any sensitive details and post the log along with details describing the problem.
