Possible to add Smart Life AC?

I’m very new to SmartThings. I just realised that I can control my AC over Wi-Fi and got it added to the Smart Life app. The app has instructions to link it to SmartThings, which I did, but I guess this device does not support linking to SmartThings.

The device identifies itself as ESP_EC3A39 to my router. Is there any way I can get SmartThings to talk to this device?

Open the device tile for your AC in the Smart Life app, click on 3 dots or pencil in upper right corner. On the next page there may be a section called 3rd party control. You will likely see Alexa and Google listed. If you see SmartThings listed you are in luck. If ST is listed go to SmartThings and run add devices by brand and chose Tuya (not Smart Life).

If SmartThings was not listed under 3rd party controls or the section is not listed there is a work around. See the attached.
