Simple Solution? 220v Tandem Receptacle (-.-) for a Window AC unit

Hi. Most of the post on this topic are older, and I was hoping something more current for a solution. I thought it would be as simple swap as swapping out the old 220v Tandem Receptacle for a SmartThings compatible 220v Tandem Receptacle but it seems that it is not. I am having trouble finding one or a simple solution. It a 220v Window Mount Air Conditioner going to a dedicated 220v Wall outlet in my living room. The Wall outlet has two blades -.-
As I mentioned, just changing the outlet would have been idea.It would be nice to have my main AC connected to my “smart” home. Any Suggestions or products I should be looking at?
