Flair To Provide Individual Room Temperature Control

Tech startup Flair has revealed its first two smart home products intended to provide localized temperature control.

Flair, which is based in San Francisco, revealed its first two products in January — the Puck smart room controller and Flair Smart Vent.

Designed to be used throughout every room of the home, Puck is a wireless sensor that connects with thermostats to monitor individual room conditions, learn occupant preferences and adjust temperatures through the Smart Vent, which intelligently directs air flow throughout the home.

Flair-18(n)“When it comes to managing temperatures in the home, most companies are focused on sensors – but a connected HVAC [Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning] system needs to be a complete system with both sensors and actuators,” said Flair Co-Founder, Daniel Myers. “Our Smart Vent and Puck sensor work together to give users the power to heat and cool each room to their liking when they’re home, and to conserve energy while they’re away. We’re excited to introduce a comprehensive product suite at an unparalleled price.”

Smart home technology has been growing in market share with each passing year, thanks in large part to the work done by Nest to inform consumers of the benefits controlling things like heating and cooling. Suddenly, thermostats have become “cool,” and the idea of saving money on heating and cooling within easy reach.

openclose-wood (1)Flair’s Puck tracks and monitors ambient light, humidity, temperature, pressure, and occupancy of each room individually, allowing the Smart Vent to heat and cool each room to the residents’ own personal preferences. Flair is also built to work alongside all types of residential systems, including window units, mini-splits, and central systems throughout North America, South America, Asia, and Europe.

The Puck, in an attempt to further integrate with the smart home, also provides microapps that allow users quick control over other smart devices in the house such as lights, fans, TVs, etc.

“Flair gives you the best of both worlds,” said Flair Co-Founder, Kenny Tay. “A simple physical interface, almost like the light switch for everything else, and a seamless option where you don’t even need to take your phone out of your pocket for the room to adjust to your preferences. You aren’t manually adjusting vents or having to remember to turn things on and off – Flair does that automagically.”

Flair is now selling at $40 for the Smart Vent and $60 for the Puck.
