    Hi Chris Moschini

    Thanks for writing in.

    I want to clarify the comment Viet made - Flair Smart Vents can be set to half open when the home is in manual mode or when the specific room the Smart Vent is assigned to is set to Inactive.  When a room is active and the home is in Auto mode our Smart Vents are designed to open or close fully.

    In many cases, the "Half Open" setting of the Flair Smart Vent won't actually result in a 50% drop in the airflow to the room - there is not a direct correlation.  

    We have had others request the ability to specify the degree to which Smart Vents open and close.  I would be happy to formally submit your suggestion to our engineers as a Feature Request. Please note that feature requests are prioritized by the company for inclusion in the product and that a timeline for implementation cannot be guaranteed.

    last I recall you can do "half" open. But its inconsistent and half the time it only allows fully open/closed. But I think your feature request already exists when it works lol

    I just purchased and am awaiting arrival of system. So am I understanding then that the system is essentially binary? Either the vent is open or closed? I thought I was purchasing a (VERY EXPENSIVE) system that would modulate the opening so we could have ideal temps in each room.

    If you have a temp sensor puck in each room you have a flair vent, it can automatically self open/close according to the temperatures set for each room.

    If the room has reached temperature, it essentially should close and allow other rooms to cool or heat until targeted temperature.

    If controlled manually, it has closed, half open, fully open.

    I already had temperature sensors from Nest but Flair never built out integration to them so I control my vents manually. Not all vents sizes are supported so there's that issue as well. Overall, this system isn't as good as it should and could be in theory.
