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 over an ad hoc RF network.
Based on the layout and construction of your home - or the size of your Flair system - more than one Gateway Puck may be required to facilitate the RF signal.

Each room with Smart Vents needs a temperature sensor. For systems with a non-integrated thermostat, this temperature sensor has to be a Flair Puck.
If you have an ecobee, or Honeywell WiFi-connected smart thermostat integrated with your Flair home, Flair can read the temperature from the thermostat or their remote sensors, so you may use those in place of a Puck.* If you have a Google Nest WiFi-connected smart thermostat integrated with your Flair home, Flair can read the temperature from the thermostat and you may use that in place of a Flair Puck. Please note that at this time Google Nest does not allow Flair to read and use temps from the Nest Room 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 16 Flair devices (including the Gateway Puck), use the Large System Calculator to determine the minimum number of Gateway Pucks required for your home.
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
