Hello and this is my 1st post. Just got Flair and I'm re-doing my HVAC with new duct work even. Bottom-line - new 2-stage HVAC with 16 SEER AC controlled via existing Ecobee 4. Have a total of old/new 11 supply registers all now migrated to Flair and hard-wired using 18 AWG plennum rated wires. Question 1: Can I also have them with battery? This way upon loss of power they can continue to work off batteries?
Here's where my biggest confusion. The puck configured as gateway. Ecobee is my main controller having comfort settings (Home/Away/etc.) with its set points and schedules. I categorically do not want to change it. The setup I have is:
1 big room in basement with its own remote sensor (Ecobee) and has 2 Flair ducts. Let's call it "Game Room".
1st. floor has another big room with 3 Flair ducts and let's call it "Family". The puck is located here.
1st. floor has 2 more rooms called "Guest" and "Formal". "Formal" has 2 Flairs and and ecobee sensor. Guest has 1 standard supply register (not Flair) and no sensors.
Here's what my expectation is - if Ecobee calls for heat and "Game Room" is UNOCCUPIED Ecobee will avoid averaging its temp. Does that somehow cause Flair to know it too and thus close the 2 registers feeding Game Room?
In Family as you see I currently do not have a remote ecobee sensor but my puck is located there. Is there a way to get the almost same functionality i.e. temp read/occupancy detect and Ecobee uses the same?
Formal, Family and Guest are in the same floor. What I have noticed is Family able to reach Ecobee set point pretty quickly but Formal takes time. Will Flair be able to read the individual sensor readings of Ecobee and thus in this case close the Family ducts but keep Formal open till such time it reaches set point in Formal? If possible I am unable to figure out how to setup in Flair App.
