I saw you have no interest in doing these at all but let me tell you over 75% of ALL households in the us WEST us celing units as well as ceiling heating and air units. You are just throwing away a HUGE market. ALL my vents in my home are celing vents and if a competitor comes along and I’ve seen one already, I would buy one for every vent in my home same day. Too bad.
The square kind where there is one per room. Amazon has a product that is just as good for 8 bucks since econet won’t make a square version.
ST doesn’t sell vents. I know there are other manufactures who sell the rectangle vents, I am sure that if you contacted them they would be more than glad to build out vents that work for you.
@ebstats, I know that Keen home is looking into making smart ceiling vents as they just posted
a survey about it.

Just received this email from Keen Home
Greetings Keen Home Supporters!
We are excited to reach out with our first official email update and we’d like to begin by saying thank you for your continued support (and in some cases, your pre-orders).
Our first product is the Keen Home Smart Vents
Our initial run of 10,000 units will be sold online on the SmartThings platform and at Lowe’s Home Improvement Centers all across the country.
We expect units to begin shipping in April/May 2015.
I just cut some to get to the main message. Smartthings and Lowes and Smart Home Vents? Wonder if they are Zigbee, Zwave or Wifi?
And, FYI, there is a special promotion going on at Keen Home:

BTW, I’ve been working on a smartapp that enables multi-zoned heating/cooling settings at thermostats(s) when coupled with vents such as Keen Home vents or Ecovents. It was designed for ecobee thermostats originally, but I got it working with any thermostat that is connected to ST (weither z-wave thermostat, Nest, or others).
You could also use the smartapp to create “virtual zones” (without any vents) where you can then adjust the heating/cooling setpoints based on the avg temp calculated from different room sensors with the ‘occupied’ option or not.
The smartapp is also able to control room thermostats if any.
See this thread for more details on the…
+1 for square everywhere.
I have half and half of square and rectangle vents. Wish they did come out with the square vents both big and small.
