Flair's scheduling feature allows you to create a schedule for each room in your home. Flair supports creating multiple schedules, but allows you to activate one at a time.
Scheduling is also a powerful way to prioritize rooms at different times of the day to get better temperature control. For example, setting bedrooms Active at night and Inactive during the day.

Create a Schedule
Create a schedule and add schedule events for the days and times you want to set different set points - or to set rooms to Inactive.
- In the Flair app, tap Schedule in the control bar, and then select "Create New Schedule"
- Under Schedule Name, enter a name for the schedule
- Tap "Add New Schedule Event" to create a new schedule event
- If setting the room to Inactive, change "Schedule Event Mode" to Inactive - or use the slider to set the "Schedule Event Set Point"
- Set the Start and End times for the schedule event
- Check the days of the week that this schedule will apply to
- Check the rooms that this schedule will apply to
- Tap Done
Edit a Schedule
- In the Flair app, tap Schedule in the control bar, and then tap the gear icon next to the schedule name you want to edit
- To delete a schedule, tap "Delete Schedule" and confirm - or tap a schedule event to edit
- In the "Edit Schedule Event" screen, make the necessary change - or tap Delete to remove the schedule event
- Tap Done
Activate a Schedule
In the Flair app, tap Schedule in the control bar, and select the name of the schedule to activate (not the gear, just the schedule name). To have no schedule active, select "No Schedule".
Most smart thermostats recommend using scheduling to balance temperatures throughout the day. Flair uses this same methodology to prioritize the areas of your home for the greatest comfort.
We recommend scheduling rooms that are unused as Inactive. This saves energy and helps Flair concentrate on the rooms you are actively using. For more information see Using Active/Inactive Rooms Effectively.
Here's an energy-saving schedule that sets the Bedroom Active at night and Inactive during the day, while setting the Living Room Active during the day and Inactive at night. Flair will prioritize the Active rooms.
Default Schedule Behavior
In the absence of a scheduled event, a room will follow the Home Set Point or occupancy data (if enabled).
This schedule sets the Guest Bedroom to 70F at night, but during the day, there are no scheduled events, so the room follows the Home Set Point during that time period.
When a schedule has overlapping events, the top-most event will take priority.
This schedule has an overlapping event that sets the Living Room to 72F. This event will take priority over the event that sets Living Room to 74F.
Scheduling and Smart Thermostats
Schedule events in Flair will take priority over a set point that is read from a smart thermostat, whether it comes from a schedule on the smart thermostat or a manual adjustment to a smart thermostat.
To avoid scheduling and set point conflicts between Flair and a smart thermostat, use the following guideline for scheduling based on Flair's Set Point Controller setting:
- If using Flair Set Point Controller, turn off scheduling in your smart thermostat and use scheduling in Flair. Note: This includes all comfort modes assigned to ecobee sensors. Read "Preventing Conflicts" in this article.
- If using Thermostat Set Point Controller, use scheduling in your smart thermostat.
If you create a Flair schedule event for a room that contains an integrated smart thermostat, Flair will adjust your smart thermostat to the set point in the schedule event. This happens whether you're in Flair Set Point or Thermostat Set Point mode.
For example, if you set the location of your ecobee thermostat to the Living Room in Flair, and you create a schedule that sets the Living Room to 70F at 6pm, Flair will send a request to your ecobee to set itself to 70F at 6PM.
Scheduling and Occupancy
A scheduled event will take priority over occupancy events. If you want a room to follow occupancy events from remote sensors, don't schedule any events for those rooms during the specific days and times you want occupancy to be used.
In this schedule, the Bedroom is scheduled to be Active at night and Inactive during the day. But the Living Room has remote sensors, and will use occupancy data all day to determine when the room is being used (Active) or not being used (Inactive), so no schedule events are created for this room.
Schedule a Mini Split to Turn Off
- Create a schedule event for the times you want the mini split to be turned off and set "Schedule Event Mode" to Inactive.
- Go to Home Settings->Away Settings and set "Away Mode" to "Off Only" - this tells Flair to turn off mini splits when you are Away - or when a room is set to Inactive.
Scheduling and Holds
If you set a Hold and a schedule event for the same time, the hold will always take priority.
