Coming from Daikin Online Controller ?

At first launch of the ONECTA application it's normal that you'll not see you existing units form the previous "Daikin Online Controller" application. Your units need to manually transferred/onboarded to ONECTA before they will be visible. Until this is done you can still use the "Daikin Online Controller" application , once they are onboarded on the ONECTA application , the "Daikin Online Controller" application can be removed.
