Every Flair system needs at least one Flair Puck. This Puck is configured as a Gateway and plugged into power using the supplied cable and adapter. The Gateway Puck is connected to your home WiFI and bridges all your Flair devices to the internet (even if you only have one Puck in your system).
Note: Based on layout and construction, some homes may require more than one Gateway Puck to facilitate signal to other Flair devices.
Pro Tip: For systems where a visible wire is not desirable, we recommend using a Puck as a dedicated networking device. This Puck is plugged in to a convenient outlet and connected to home WiFi. This frees up other Pucks to use batteries.
Get one Flair Puck for each room that has Smart Vents. The Puck reads temperature and acts like a thermostat for the room. Rotate the Puck to change the room set point. If you have an ecobee or Honeywell WiFi connected smart thermostat, Flair can also read temperature from their remote sensors.
Mini Splits, Window Units and Portables
Get one Flair Puck per unit. For mini splits, this is one Puck per indoor head unit.
Ducted Mini Split Systems
Get one Flair Puck to control the mini split. You may need to purchase a wall mounted IR receiver (check with your mini spit manufacturer). If you're using Smart Vents, also get one Flair Puck per room with Smart Vents.
For large systems with more than 11 Flair devices, use the Large System Calculator to determine the minimum number of Gateway Pucks required for your home.
