It's been kind of a painful journey to get things to a point where I can now write my own automation scripts to handle the Ecobee Thermostat, the Flair Pucks and Vents, and our new Duct Booster Fan.
I ended up buying a SmartThings Hub and buying a Device Handler package for it that would give me access to the Flair devices. Just this morning, way to early, I stumbled across WebCoRE for doing the automation.
However, to disable the Flair automatic processes you have to put the Flair system in Manual Mode. Once you do that the Pucks are only available as sensors.
In this scenario, and I can't be the only one that wants this, I would love to see the option to retain Puck functionality for setting the room setpoint instead of referring the user to change their setpoint in the App. (that really pissed off the wife this morning)
There may be things that others would want to remain active, I just need to be able to allow those Pucks to still act as their room thermostat.
Edit: I know there are different ways I could do all of this, including letting Flair handle the automation and I just write one to handle the booster fan turning on and off, but like many DIYers I like to do it myself and tinker with it.
Before someone asks, I need to control the booster fan because relying on a duct pressure switch will only tell it when the furnace fan is blowing, but it won't tell it if the vents downstream are open or not.
