I have a 5-zone mini-split air conditioning system located in an outbuilding on my property that lacks any sort of normal thermostat connection.

The only way to control the indoor A/C units is via hand-held IR remotes. Five of them!!!

I have an ISY-499i/IR that currently controls everything in the main house and just the lighting in the outbuilding.

My ISY is Insteon-only, is located in the main house. It is probably located too far away from the outbuilding to run ZWave.

The main house central air is controlled by Insteon thermostats and Amazon Echo Dots (Alexa) - it is totally awesome and I'd like to duplicate that same functionality in the outbuilding.

Do I have any options?

Best regards,

Kevin G. McCoy

Check the ISY forums, people have used a couple of different solutions there for sending IR.
