Today I did some research and noticed that air conditioner monitoring is not very well supported. It seems most check temperature using hardware like HWg-STE but this is a passive test. I would like to check the air conditioner directly, using SNMP for example (just like the STE).
I got a test setup featuring the Panasonic CS-E12PKEA with IntesisHome (click) attached to it. IntesisHome is WLAN-only (did’nt even manage to connect it to a simple WPA2 network - connection issue, other story).
It does not provide SNMP but web scraping might work - not very satisfying. The whole product is designed to work only with Intesis cloud services - completely unacceptable.
This module is far away from a product like HWg-STE in regards to monitoring integration.
I’m no air conditioner expert, is there any better solution available? Anything that works with GLT/P-Link (if that’s how it’s called)?
