    Hi Jon,

    With System set to "Auto", Flair is designed to close vents for rooms at set point in order to push conditioned air to other rooms that need it.

    If you're attempting to do this manually, I'm curious if there's something else we should be doing.

    Thought I'd mention that Flair uses a 1F range around the set point. This article explains more:

    https://support.flair.co/hc/en-us/articles/360046050012-How-does-Flair-know-when-to-open-and-close-Smart-Vents-

    If we get the set points in your rooms set up in accordance with the hysteresis band, then it should work naturally. We can also tighten up the hysteresis band, but you'll have to write into support for that at hello@flair.co.

    All the best,

    Finn

    Hey Jon,

    I'm going to ask the support team to jump in on the single room temp hold point since I'm not entirely sure what you are after but I'm guessing they might be able to come up with a simple solution.

    We do have a web app :)

    Cheers,
    Dan

    Thanks for the quick response. Somehow missed the web app. Exactly what I was looking for.

    So maybe it would help for me to explain what I'm doing. It's very possible I'm doing something that would otherwise be done automatically. So I have my stat set to 72. I have two rooms on the second floor that have consistently different temperatures. The master bedroom, with 2 flair vents, is right off the main HVAC trunk. The other bedroom is on the other side of the house and goes through a second junction? box that feeds a couple rooms on the other side of the house . I can get as much as a 10degree difference between these two bedrooms depending on the outside temp and time of day. Both rooms have ecobee sensors and both sensors participate in my set comfort settings. The ecobee will try and average the temps between the two sensors to hit the 72 set point. That being said the one room never gets close to this temp. But to get the other bedroom close to this temp it freezes the first floor and I assume causes the AC to stay on longer. To try to help cool the other room what I'm doing is setting the flair room temp in the master bedroom to 74. My thinking is the vents will close at I think 73 which will help direct more air to the other room. This while causing the ecobee to not hit the set point faster in the master bedroom and force more air to the other room and come to a better average temperature. Its not that big of a deal, but if I could set the temps for each vent individually I could set one vent to a higher temp than the other which would close it sooner than the other. Ultimately I'm trying to do two things. Primarily, get the one room to cool faster and more evenly. With the master bedroom vents closed I do notice a difference in air pressure in the problem room. Secondly, but not as important is I'm trying to cut down the run time. Am I over thinking this?

    Hi Jon,

    You can set individual room holds - and you can use scheduling to help too.

    In the Flair app, the room tiles have a blue temperature dial. Drag the dot around the blue circle to create a room hold.

    All the best,
    Flynn
