Native support for Gree Air Conditioner

As all Gree Air Conditioner Units come with Wi-Fi it would be great to have a native support in the Tado Hub without the need of an extra Smart AC Control.

In my case I have all Smart Radiator Thermostat on each radiator and Wireless Temperature Sensor in each room. I like that both of those require no connection to the power socket and run on battery. When putting air conditioner I would have to either replace the current Temperature sensor with the the AC Sensor or have them both + Radiator Sensor which makes no sense.

Gree air conditioner comes with built-in Wi-Fi and it has an REST API. Specification for the API is not public but I'm sure that if you would work with Gree on bringing support they would give you the access to the technical documentation. If not there have already been reverse engineering done on the REST API:

As hub is connected to the network it could make REST API calls to the Gree Air Conditioner without any need for an additional AC module.
