Best smart vent with VeraPlus & EcoBee4?
« on: April 15, 2018, 02:50:26 pm »
I was about to order Keen smart vents since they're finally back in stock, but lo and behold there are competitors now (although only one looks viable).
I'm also trying to decide if I really need to get the Bridge device, or if the Vera will be able to handle controlling the vents based on the Ecobee room sensors.

Has anyone looked at Flair?

I know I've seen some posts about Vera and Keen, are you happy with the integration?

TIA!

I have both an Ecobee 3 and a mix of Keen and Econet vents and have been pretty happy with the setup. The Keen (Zigbee) and Econet(Zwave) have been setup on the Vera as window coverings but I created a device type for vents. The ecobee and sensors comes in through the plugin I adapted to UI7 and works reasonably well. Have not looked at Flair...
