When Flair is controlling the set point, why does it use the average home temperature and average home set point to determine the smart thermostat set point? It would seem that this would result in most rooms never achieving their local set point goals.
Instead, why does it not at least have the option to use the lowest set point (for cooling mode) and the highest set point (for heating mode). In this way, rooms would simply close their vents when their set point was reached, and the system would stop heating/cooling when the highest/lowest temperature was achieved.
Something like this:
Current temperature 78 degrees, system set to cooling
Room A set to 75 degrees
Room B set to 70 degrees
Room C set to 65 degrees
Flair sets thermostat set point to 65 since Room C has the lowest set point
Room A closes its vents when it reaches 74 degrees
Cooling continues, Room B closes its vents at 69 degrees
Cooling continues, Room C reaches 65, Flair ends the call for cooling, system stops.
If this is not an option, how can I achieve something similar? If I set rooms A & B to inactive so that Room C can achieve its set point, Rooms A & B will remain at 78 degrees and never be cooled.
One last question: when Flair sets a smart thermostat to a temperature, does heating/cooling stop when the thermostat reaches that temperature or when the average temperature (as calculated by Flair) is achieved?
Thanks for your help!
