    As far as I understand, you are correct. You only need one puck upstairs and your nest (integrated into flair) downstairs.

    However, you'll probably find that the low-frequency reception of the puck isn't enough to cover your whole place.
    I've found that pucks set up as a gateways are only good through one (maybe two) walls. I currently have a weak signal where my vents are in my ceiling - and that's line-of-sight to the gateway puck (basement).

    I currently have one puck in the basement (4 vents, 1000 sq ft), two pucks upstairs (4 vents, 1800 sq ft). All are gateway pucks.
    Hope that helps,

    Each Flair room with Smart Vents needs one temperature-sensing device.  In your case, this would be a Flair Puck or the Nest thermostat.  Google Nest doesn't allow any third parties access to information from its Nest room sensors so you won't be able to use these as part of your Flair setup. 

    As Sal mentioned, depending on the size and layout of your home, you may need a second Flair Puck configured as a Gateway to improve the quality of the RF signal to all the Flair Smart Vents in your home.

    Could you clarify? You stated that a temperature sensing device can be a Flair Puck OR Nest thermostat.

    mill4003 is wondering about using one puck upstairs and one nest thermostat downstairs (two temperature sensing devices, two Flair Rooms).
    Flair vents would be assigned to the downstairs (Nest thermostat) room.
