A Thermostat for Every Room
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, Nest, and Honeywell Lyric Smart Thermostats. Remote sensor capabilities may vary between Smart Thermostats. This guide is also available here.
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.
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 Mode: Evenness (Active Rooms)
While in Evenness mode, Flair will make sure that every room in your home is the same temperature (Note: user-specified holds will override Evenness). In Evenness (Active Rooms), rooms can be marked as Active or 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.
Use Thermostat Setpoint: Off (left/grey)
When Use Thermostat Set Point is off, you will see the option to create a Set Point for Home. The Set Point for Home setting is used as the default temperature set point for each room in your home.
Home/Away Mode: Use Thermostat
This will use the Home and Away status from your Smart Thermostat.
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.
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.
