I've just recently added enough puck to manage my whole house, which uses LG mini-split heatpumps.
As suggested, I had used manual for a while, and was ready to step back and let Flair run the house.
I set my system to:
"not away" (home)
Max Temp 25.5C / Min 17C overall
Set Point for house: 24.5
Set Point Mode: Active Rooms
My hope was that the rooms in the house would generally float up to 25.5, and using bluetooth beaconing, Flair would figure out which room I was in, and keep that room at 24.5. I'd expect that the mini-splits would run on auto-fan, and be left on, with the appropriate set-points (to trust the system to manage the shared compressors cycle times), and that when I left the house, all the rooms would be marked as "away."
Instead, all the pucks set the mini-splits throughout the house to 17C, marked all the rooms as "away." Blasting away the A/C.
1) Where did I go wrong, and what should I set to get the behavior I was expecting.
2) How does Flair decide when to manage temperature using the unit set-points vs. turning on and off the splits, and should I care (my goal is the most efficient use of energy... my understanding is that the variable speed compressor prefers to be "left on" vs. manually cycled, to optimize power usage.
So I likely have an incorrect assumption or two, so welcome more information so I can start using Flair to save me the hassle of walking around and adjusting my min-splits one by one.
