Do you want your Nest, ecobee, or Honeywell thermostat to control your mini split? You can do so with Mini Split Mirror Mode!
Simply go to Menu → Home Settings → System Settings and set your Set Point Controller to Thermostat.
Now, your mini split will mirror exactly what your thermostat does. If your thermostat is heating to 68, your mini split will heat to 68. If thermostat is cooling to 75, mini split will cool to 75.
PLEASE NOTE: Mirror Mode is not supported if your smart thermostat is heat only and you want your mini split to cool. This is because if your smart thermostat is set to heat to 70F, it doesn’t make sense for your mini split to cool to 70F.
Your smart thermostat and mini split will continue fighting and heating and cooling the same area and wasting energy.
We have two suggestions for this:
- Some customers have spoken with their smart thermostat manufacturer and have had a virtual cool mode enabled on their thermostat.
- Use Flair scheduling for your mini split. Flair scheduling can also help set temperatures and schedules on your smart thermostat.
