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 the radio frequency signal to Flair Smart Vents and Sensor Pucks.
Pro Tip: For systems where a visible wire is not desirable, we recommend either of these solutions:
- Using the Flair USB Mount plugged into an outlet 48" from the floor
- Using a Puck as a dedicated networking device
Each room with smart vents needs a temperature sensor. For systems with non-integrated thermostats, you'll need one Flair Puck for each room that has Smart Vents. If you have an ecobee or Honeywell WiFi-connected smart thermostat, Flair can also read temperature from the thermostat or their remote sensors, so you may use those in place of a Puck.
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.
