Do you want your ecobee or Honeywell smart thermostat to control your mini split? You can do so with Mini Split Mirror Mode!
Simply go to Menu → Home Settings → System Settings and set your Set Point Controller to Thermostat.
Then ensure each room containing a mini split is in both the mini split zone and the thermostat zone. You can set the room zones by clicking the three dot menu on the room and selecting Settings.
Now, your mini split will mirror exactly what your thermostat does. If your thermostat is heating to 68, your mini split will heat to 68. If your thermostat is cooling to 75, mini split will cool to 75.
PLEASE NOTE: Mirror Mode is not supported if your smart thermostat is heat only and you want your mini split to cool. This is because if your smart thermostat is set to heat to 70F, it doesn’t make sense for your mini split to cool to 70F.
Your smart thermostat and mini split will continue fighting and heating and cooling the same area and wasting energy.
In lieu of using Mirror Mode, we suggest to use Flair scheduling for your mini split. Flair scheduling can also help set temperatures and schedules on your smart thermostat.
Mini Split Mirror Mode will not work with Google Nest thermostats following the August 31, 2019 transition away from Works with Nest. For more information, see our article on how Flair works with Nest after the Google transition.
