Room Temperature Limits
Minimum Room Temperature

Ideal for children’s bedrooms, you can rest assured your family will stay warm all year round.

Our easy-to-use Wi-Fi Control allows you to customise the settings of each air conditioner in your home. Purchase multiple adaptors to manage all air conditioners independently on the same account to ensure maximum control over your system.

Why choose Wi-Fi
Mitsubishi Electric Wi-Fi Air Conditioner Control opens the door to smarter heating and cooling. You are now able to control your air conditioner from wherever you are through your smartphone or online, allowing you to be in charge of cooling this summer. Wi-Fi Air Conditioner Control has been developed for superior control and comfort in our diverse climate – view the profiles below to see how Wi-Fi Air Conditioner Control will suit your needs.
Families with Children
The World Health Organisation considers rooms colder than 16°C overnight harmful to your health. However, at Mitsubishi Electric we understand that running your air conditioner overnight can create additional costs. As a result we have developed an energy efficient solution to maintaining a healthy environment in your child’s bedroom. Use the Wi-Fi Control’s ‘minimum room temperature’ feature to maintain a healthy base temperature throughout the night – your air conditioner will switch on if it senses that the temperature has dropped below the required minimum. The result? A healthier home for you and your children, and a more energy efficient heating option.
With Wi-Fi Air Conditioner Control you no longer have to return to a hot or cold home. With all operating information at your fingertips you are able to turn your air conditioner on or off and change the settings while you are out of the house – opening the door to more convenient living. You can also develop operating rules to suit your schedule for consistently superior comfort.
As Mitsubishi Electric Wi-Fi Control talks to your air conditioner remotely, you can adjust your system to suit your needs while you are going about your daily schedule. Did you set your air conditioner to turn on when you head home from work but decide to go out for dinner? With the Wi-Fi Control you are able to easily adjust timer settings or turn your air conditioner on/off remotely – saving you money. Enjoy the new world of smarter cooling and heating with the Wi-Fi Control.
Mitsubishi Electric Wi-Fi Control allows you to unlock the full potential of your air conditioning system, and incorporates features which can save you money. For those who love to return to a comfortable home, Wi-Fi Control has an energy efficient way to do so. Instead of returning to a hot or cold home and turning your air conditioner up high for instant comfort, you can instead turn on when you are heading home to warm or cool your home gradually. Same result, more savings!
Use the minimum room temperature feature to maintain a healthy base temperature throughout the night – your air conditioner will switch on if it senses that the temperature has dropped below the required minimum. This allows you to maintain a healthy overnight temperature without having to run your air conditioner all night. In the summer, use the maximum room temperature feature and your air conditioner will automatically turn on to cool the room – allowing you to go to sleep in superior comfort, but without having to run the system all night.
Are you always on the go? Mitsubishi Electric Wi-Fi Air Conditioner Control ensures you have superior control over your air conditioner through your remote device. You are able to turn your air conditioner on or off remotely, change the settings, and delete or amend pre-programmed schedules for smarter heating and cooling – even from overseas. You no longer have to worry about whether you left your system running as all operating information is available at your fingertips.
As wonderful as Australia is, it certainly can challenge our forward-planning with its tendency to squeeze all four seasons into one day. Technicians have developed Mitsubishi Electric Wi-Fi Control to suit Australian conditions, allowing you to take charge of the ever-changing weather. Turn your air conditioner on/off, amend or delete scheduled programming, or change your systems’ settings – you are now able to customise your high-wall system to suit the climate. Turn guess-work into smarter heating and cooling with Wi-Fi Air Conditioner Control.
Holiday Home Owners

Wi-Fi Control allows you to fully enjoy your holiday experience by providing superior control over your system.
Asthma and Allergy Sufferers

1. Wi-Fi Control App
For your smartphone, tablet or computer
For full Wi-Fi control over your air conditioner you require both a Wi-Fi Control account and a Mitsubishi Electric MAC-558IF-E Wi-Fi Control Adaptor. This will enable you to send instructions to your air conditioner, and within seconds (up to one minute) your air conditioner will receive and action the command. Your air conditioner will send a confirmation signal to your phone, so you can be confident that your command has been received. You are also able to check the temperature and settings of your air conditioner and adjust programming accordingly, via your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Download the ‘Mitsubishi Wi-Fi Control App’ on your smartphone for full control over your air conditioner system; click here for an online demonstration and download information.
2. Internet Connection between Smartphone and Server
To control your air conditioner your smartphone requires an active internet connection to send the command from your phone to your air conditioner via the server.
Read the list of minimum requirements
3. Black Diamond Technology Server
The Black Diamond Technologies (BDT) server facilitates the connection between your smartphone, tablet or computer and your air conditioner. Black Diamond Technologies Limited are the exclusive distributors of Mitsubishi Electric products in New Zealand.
Every minute the BDT server and your air conditioner communicate – this ensures commands sent via the Wi-Fi Control App are activated quickly. Also, scheduled rules which are stored on the server are activated automatically during this process. Your App will also be kept up to date with the status of your air conditioner due to a bi-directional signal. For example, if a remote control is used in the room, the settings will be updated on your App – ensuring you always have real time information about your system.
The server is also able to confirm your air conditioner is working correctly. However, if there is a fault your air conditioner will be able to send the fault code to your phone – making detecting and fixing issues simple.
4. Wireless Router
5. Wi-Fi Control Adaptor
The MAC-558IF-E Wi-Fi Control Adaptor connects discreetly to your air conditioner’s control board and should only be installed by an authorised installer. Its clever design means no wires will compromise the sleek style of your air conditioning system.
6. Wall Mounted Split System Air Conditioners
The MAC-558IF-E Wi-Fi Control Adaptor is available on all Mitsubishi Electric wall mounted split systems. The MAC-558IF-E Wi-Fi Control Adaptor can either be purchased as an optional upgrade when purchasing a wall mounted split system air conditioner, or retrofitted to an existing Mitsubishi Electric model.
Wi-Fi Control minimum requirements for operation
- Compatible WPA2-AES capable router with WPS wireless network with coverage including the air conditioner installation location
- A PC/Tablet/Smartphone that is iOS/Android/Windows compatible
- A Mitsubishi Electric MAC-558IF-E Wi-Fi Adaptor
- A compatible Mitsubishi Electric air conditioner
You will need a compatible WPA2-AES capable router with WPS to use the Wi-Fi Control / Wi-Fi Adaptor MAC-558IF-E. Most WPS capable routers will be compatible with the MAC-558IF-E. Every router has its own way of enabling WPS, and some routers have it disabled by default. Due to the large number of routers available, knowing how to activate WPS on your router is not something we or our installers are able to assist with, but is generally easily available in your router instruction manual. If your router is not compatible, it is possible to resolve this by plugging in an additional compatible router to your existing router.
- For instruction about how to enable WPS on your wireless router please refer to the router’s user manual as this process may differ for each router.
- Be careful when pressing the WPS button because if you hold the WPS button for a long time, on some wireless routers it will trigger a reset.
