Be more specific.
Try using Intesis modules.
If you want to dive deeper into the issue, you can write your own QA for Modbus/TCP, or there is a Modbus over HTTP REST API solution.
It won't cost much...certainly not a kidney.
Maybe the liver :) (and you start tuning it and start drinking)

    Thank you for your reply.i am aware on Intesis, coolautomation and aidoo, but i'm pretty sure that not all AC can communicate modbus or even http over TCP.


    I have a problem especially with the small split system where i can only so far being able to communicate via IR, and this is only one way communication. I'm lokking for a two way communication for at least the feedback.

    Attached is a sample image of one of split system that need to be able to control.

    Thx again for you reply.

    Sorry... the pictures are on...

    Find out the type and write it here. The best thing to do is to start looking for the communication protocols that your device manufacturer knows. Most devices can somehow communicate, you need an additional card that costs half of your device.
    And if the manufacturer doesn't have a rear option, you're left with nothing but unidirectional IR.
    I don't know what exactly you want to do with the settings, but most integrated IR devices are already at a good level and can be relied on to send the required command to the HVAC control room.
