    Hi Jonathan,

    I'm not sure how easy it is - in theory you could push to the thermostat api endpoints but I think the part where we would adjust the thermostat settings automatically will be missing.  What type of stat is it?

    Cheers,
    Dan

    I have a Bryant Evolution Connex Control (AKA Infinity System Control). These HVAC systems are "communicating" systems and are incompatible with Ecobee/Nest/etc. smart thermostats. However, I nevertheless have complete control of it via a brilliant GitHub project called Infinitude that uses the tstat proxy address and exposes its APIs. I want to either modify Infinitude or create a bridge between the two that registers with Flair to receive set point, heat, cool, etc. push notifications as Flair is operating in auto mode.

    I think I could maybe glean Fair's intent by sampling the 'api/vents/<guid>/current-reading {percent-open}' value. Like, if the room is too warm, Flair opens the vent all the way and that's my cue to tell the A/C to turn on. But that only works if after reaching the cool set point, it closes the vent some. So, yeah, it's not ideal.
