Which is the best air conditioning Wi-Fi controller on the market




With many home appliance devices now becoming controllable via internet based remote controllers on smart phones and tablets the air conditioning market seems to have been slow to catch on with a fully integrated unit. A lot of heating manufacturers already have integrated Wi-Fi so why not on air conditioning? Many of the big names in air conditioning are using a third-party controller such as Fujitsu and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries air conditioning who use a Intesis based system with a proven security record. These types of air conditioning Wi-Fi controller unit are of a IR control style which means they sit remotely to the unit, have their own power source and work like a TV remote controller in the sense that the IR transmitter needs to be pointed at the receiver.


The air conditioning manufacturers that have a retro-fit integrated Wi-Fi control unit are Daikin air conditioning and Mitsubishi Electric Air Conditioning who use their own self certified unit which they manufacture themselves. The Mitsubishi electric air conditioning MELCloud is by far the best of the main manufacturers as it an integrated unit which plugs onto a socket on the main indoor PCB of the Mitsubishi electric indoor unit. As of 2016 none of the main manufactures have Wi-Fi as standard. The only manufacturer doing Wi-Fi as standard are the Chinese manufactured Midea air conditioning unit's which now come standard. How secure these units are is a essentially down to the server the App runs through, most Wi-Fi  control devices and remote access systems usually require a Proxy server for the transfer of data, acting as a third party for your commands and data retrieval. Some apps from lesser known manufacturers in the past have had a tendency to request unnecessary data from your smart device such as full contact's list. Recently an entire far eastern manufacturer of CCTV remote access cameras was hacked to the extent that they were controlled remotely by a hacker to attack other servers in a denial of service attack. The main air conditioning manufacturers are most likely at this stage still working on the security aspect of the technology before releasing a fully integrated Wi-Fi control as standard or they are waiting for the technology to get cheaper.
