Good product but not user friendly

This software has a learning curve; comparing to most other smart home products, this one begs the everyday man to learn and adapt to its own ecosystem of jargon, settings and interface versus using something easier to manage for common folk. Work in progress I suppose.

Geofencing has proved to be finicky at best and it seems every so often we run into the flair app not recognizing we are home and keeping us frozen in bed with no heat. This has happened at least 6 times since ownership of this product and all installed updates (6 months of ownership). We use this for 2 room mini split Carrier system.

Eventually, this will probably be top tier all around but it feels like it’s a work in progress from our perspective.

Hi Vixitl, we've made improvements to our geofencing system. Please contact us at hello@flair.co if you continue to experience this issue.

Good hardware, amateurish software, missing features

The puck (hardware) does what it’s supposed to do, though the build quality feels cheap. It’s missing the ability to control several features of my mini/split, though some were added in the recent firmware update. While I understand the need to avoid rapid on/off cycles, they need to introduce a way that the system turns off completely when the actual temp is way above/below the set point in scheduled mode.

The software is a mess. It feels like a minimally functional version of software to sell the hardware. Several of the adjustment widgets appear to be embedded in selectable text fields so that when you try to slide to adjust temperature you get a blue text selection indicator. The main “dial”-style adjuster to set temperature is oversensitive, making it near impossible to easily adjust temperature by a couple of degrees. The “hold” function (to temporarily override a scheduled temp) defaults to “permanent”, with no obvious way to change it to a shorter period when setting; and the facility that looks like it should allow you to set a duration just doesn’t work.

Overall it’s a worthwhile product, if only to be able to adjust my mini split remotely. But overall the software needs major work.

Hi ibderPlau,

Have you tried using the RoomSense™ feature? This allows Flair to nudge the set point on your mini split as necessary to maintain the set point. It's located in Flair menu, Home Settings->IR Devices. Expand the mini split and tap the switch to enable RoomSense.

We've made improvements to our hold feature - tap the hold indicator button to select a different hold duration.

Great idea but convoluted software

This is a great idea. I have an east facing room that needs full air in the morning to keep cool but gets too cold in the afternoon/evening when the west side is getting full sun snd being cooled, even with multiple room sensors. This seemed to be the ideal solution to be able to better control the air flow to rooms when I need it.

The software is not easy to use and there is no easy way to just set a schedule to turn the vent on and off. After digging through the help information, there were instructions to game the system temperature settings to get the vent to do what I wanted. I noticed though that integrating it with my smart thermostat, I got weird temperature holds and my schedule to cool the house for sleep based on other room sensors didn’t work, even though reading the support material, this shouldn’t happen. Eventually, I deleted everything, set up the Flair vent separately as if I had a dumb thermostat, and then followed the instructions to game the temperature settings to open/close the vent and it seems to work as I intended. A big pain to get there though.

Still, great promise with this product if they can make improvements with the software.
