A Thermostat for Every Room
Learn how to set up your Flair Puck as a remote sensor with your Smart Thermostat.
Most thermostats are located in a hallway, leaving your rooms uncomfortable. What if you could have a thermostat in every room of your home? The Flair Puck can be configured as a remote sensor for your Smart Thermostat to keep your rooms comfortable.
Flair works with ecobee and Honeywell T9 and T10 Smart Thermostats. Remote sensor capabilities may vary between Smart Thermostats.
Note: It’s important to know that remote sensors can’t do everything. If you’re looking for a more complete solution, we recommend pairing your Pucks with our Smart Vents.
Following the August 31, 2019 transition away from Works with Nest by Google, this article no longer applies to Google Nest thermostats. For more information, see our article on how Flair works with Nest after the Google transition.
Step One: Initial Configuration
Set up your Flair system and integrate your Smart Thermostat. If you have not done this already, please follow the instructional videos at flair.co/welcome.
Step Two: Create Rooms
We recommend creating a room for your Smart Thermostat and a separate room for your Puck.
Step Three: Use the Following Recommended Settings
Set Point Controller: Flair App
If you select this mode, you will see a slider at the bottom of the menu screen labelled “Set Point for Home.” The Set Point for Home setting is used as the default temperature set point for each room in your home. Flair will use that temperature set point and periodically push it to your thermostat.
Home/Away Mode: Thermostat
Flair will take the Home and Away status from your thermostats. For example, if your Smart Thermostat has determined that you are Away, Flair will enter Away mode.
Set Point for Home: Set to your desired temperature
This will be the temperature Flair will maintain in your Active Rooms.
Step Four: Active and Inactive Rooms
Set your Rooms as Active or Inactive. Rooms that are inactive will show AWAY on the Home Screen.
Be sure to set the room that your thermostat is in as Inactive.
If a room is marked as Active, the set point will be maintained by adjusting Smart Vents, IR devices, and/or Smart Thermostats. If a room is marked as Inactive, the set point will not be maintained for that room.
Step Five: What to Expect
With these settings enabled, Flair will ensure that your Active Rooms are at or near your set point by making adjustments to your Smart Thermostat. Any rooms marked as Inactive will vary (“float”) between your minimum and maximum away settings.
If you have multiple Pucks in different rooms acting as a remote sensor, Flair will average the temperatures in these rooms to achieve your set point temperature. For example, if your set point temperature is 70º, your rooms may be 67º and 73º.
Want both rooms to be 70º? We recommend pairing your Pucks with our Smart Vents for a more complete solution.
Note: When making a change, there may be a delay of up to (but not typically) 20 minutes before a change to the Puck impacts your smart thermostat or vice versa.
