NEW] Control Flair Vents with Hubitat - Free Open Source App and Driver

Hi All,
@mluck, my apologies, I do not know how to answer your question on v0.9 -- I do not see a version in the groovy source or the github interface to identify differently.
@shimbone, after discovering the devices, I did upgrade the source back to the most recent revision.

@ljbotero Thank you for the wonderful work here -- vent control seem to work great.

how did you do this part? I was intending to do the same. Used the old version to discover the devices, then wanted to upgrade to the new version of the integration. So I used the HPM update feature, but that just created a new instance. Curious how it worked for you?

did a copy of the raw code from github and pasted it over the app code for the vent app.

Hi everyone, I finally was able to find some time to fix the problem of device discovery, I just pushed a fix on version 0.11. It was a dumb check for a parameter that was being always sent as null and preventing the data from being post processed.

Jaime, welcome back and thanks for looking.

Like others, I ended up going back to an earlier version, successfully discovered all my vents, then upgraded the app.

While the discovery worked, I’m still seeing errors in the log (sample below). And I noticed that vents with room-active=False are still getting opened automatically. That shouldn’t happen, right?

Hi @mluck , thanks! Yes, the vents that are not active are left at zero opening. However, if the airflow is limited to less than 30% flow, all vents are adjusted proportionally, including the inactive vents. This ensures your HVAC is protected and always allows at least 30% airflow. As far as the error logs, thanks for sharing, I will investigate and see if I can pinpoint root case.

Yes I was aware of this rule, but I’m seeing situations where just a very few vents (of 25 total) are closed and yet a vent in an inactive room is not closing and/or staying closed.

For example, right now, of 25 vents, 3 of them are in 2 inactive rooms, and the other 22 are in active rooms, yet all of them are 100% opened. If I close the 3 manually, they reopen after a little while.

Flair mobile app is in manual mode and I don’t have any other automations running on the vents other than your awesome integration.
