- Using Active/Inactive Rooms Effectively
Rooms can be set as Active or Inactive using a switch on the room tile, through scheduling, or by setting your home to Home or Away. Setting your home to Away sets all rooms to Inactive.
Toggle the Active switch on a room tile to set a room to Active or Inactive.
Note that the "Active" label does not change. Text description below the label describes the last action that was taken to set the room to Active or Inactive. It may indicate an occupancy event, when the Active switch was toggled or whether the home is set to Home or Away.
Flair will follow set points, holds and schedules in an Active room. For systems with an integrated smart thermostat using Flair as the Set Point Controller, Active rooms will be used in calculating the home average.
In this example, Joe toggled the room to Active at 2:29 PM. The mini split turned on and is holding at 69F.
Flair does not maintain set points, holds, or schedules in Inactive rooms. For systems with an integrated smart thermostat using Flair as the Set Point Controller, Inactive rooms will not be used in calculating the home average.
For mini splits, Flair will follow the Away Settings defined for your Flair system.
For central systems, Flair will try to close Smart Vents, but may need to keep them open for back pressure protection.
In this example, the Bedroom was set to Inactive by a schedule event at 7:00 PM. The Away Settings for this home are set to "Off Only" so the mini split is turned off when the room is set to Inactive.
