Any suggestions for Iris to control window air conditioners?

I would really like to be able to control a window air conditioner using Iris. My first thought was a manually controlled air conditioner with a smart plug using my Iris thermostat and rules / scenes to regulate temperature. However, I can't seem to find a manually controlled unit large enough to cool the room I need it for.

I have one of these (I'm pretty sure this is the model I have) and it works fine on a V1 smartplug in my garage.

When you turn the smart plug back on it comes right back on at the temperature it was previously set at.

If you need a 230v unit, you could use one of these and wire up the appropriate recepticle to it:

I have also seen some higher-end GE units where you can actually attach a wall thermostat to it.
