Fujitsu Wi-Fi enabled models discontinued or out of stock ?

Hi

I have a great experience with Fujitsu Halcyon 9RLS3Y models, so I plan to install another one

There is a new model 09LZAH1

https://www.fujitsugeneral.com/us/products/split/wall/09lzah1.html

which seems similar to what I have

However, while shopping - it seems models with Wi-Fi enabled indoor units are unavailable. Some sites sell the model 09LZBH1: https://www.fujitsugeneral.com/us/products/split/wall/09lzah1b.html

which doesn't have Wi-Fi

Some sites even say it is discontinued: https://www.ecomfort.com/Fujitsu-09LZASH1/p106472.html

Fujitsu, however, says 09LZAH1 is a current model and should be available

Anybody can shed light on why Wi-Fi model is widely unavailable?

Thanks

    Is this for your personal use or are you a fujitsu dealer? If you are a Fujitsu dealer you should not be purchasing from places like e-comfort, as the warranty is not the same. If you are a homeowner doing DIY work I would imagine that fujitsu probably kept as much inventory allocated to their licensed dealers through distribution as they could. Johnstone Supply I do believe is the big fujitsu distributor. I know there has been a bit of a shortage (same as every year with A/C equipment) but the Fujitsu dealers near me have been able to purchase equipment for all their projects locally through Johnstone.

    Thank you

    Yes, this is for my personal use and DIY.

    I have 6 units installed 2 years ago by Fujitsu dealer, and if not for rebates from my electric company - I would have never been able to afford them - their prices are prohibitive.
