    I've got a Fujitsu RLS2 that I'd like to start remotely. During the winter I use the house on ( some not all) weekends. The unit I've got comes with a IR remote control

    What I'm looking for is a way to start/stop the heat pump using an internet connection, so when I arrive to fire up the wood stove the house will be somewhat warm. I recall someone here had such a device.. but for I'm unable to find it..

    If you know of a device that will do this , please let me know

    I use 2 of these.

    Not cheap but they work well. I control our M55 insert with one and the oil burner + AC with the other.
    I use an iPhone, a lap top or even my work computer with an internet connection.
    I spend a lot of time traveling but can see the house temperature from anywhere.

    I have logged the house temps at 2 hour intervals for 2+ years with these and still not filled up the logging memory.
    They were developed for controlling the interior temperatures of vacation condos & timeshares by remote owners.

    You could also get a wifi thermostat like the ecobee or the nest, if the fujitsu takes a 24VAC input (most minis don't).

    So.. absent a gadget for the unit, I need something that can remotely control a gadget that sends out an IR code
