AR**KSWSJWK Smart Whisper Mini Split Won't connect to SmartThings

I have a 2020 AR09KSWSJWK, and have never been able to get added to the SmartThings app. Are there any special things I have to do (WiFi, controller reset, etc.) to get this working?

Steps I tried:

  • Add using the SmartThings app in Android and iPad
  • Add using a isolated router with only 2.4Ghz SSID
  • Add using the Smart Air Conditioner in Android and iPad

When getting AP to flash on unit, it does show a SSID called DIRECT-SAMSUNGAIRCON, however no app knows how to connect it and get it added to the app.
