Smart Vent Installation

  • Screwdriver
  • Stool (for ceiling vents)

Plug your bridge/hub into a power outlet and your home router or modem.

Launch the Keen Home app and follow the instructions to add your Smart Bridge. You'll just need the six-digit activation code found on its underside.

Remove the magnetic faceplate and pull the removable green arrow tab to activate your Smart Vent. The Smart Vent will double blink green to indicate it is on and ready to pair with your hub.

Remove the existing floor, wall, or ceiling vent register where you want to install your Smart Vent.

Insert your Smart Vent in place of your old vent register and align the ceiling mounting clips included with the Smart Vent faceplate with the screw holes on the vent and in the wall.

Secure your Smart Vent using the two included screws if required (ceiling/wall installations).

To add a Smart Vent in the app:

Either from the Home Controls or Room Controls screens, create a room in which you're installing the Smart Vent(s).

Within that room, tap 'Add Smart Devices,' then follow the on-screen instructions to add your Smart Vent. We strongly recommend connecting one Smart Vent at a time so you can easily keep track of which vent is installed where.

A window will pop up with a spinning status wheel signifying the app is looking for a device. The Smart Vent should pop up during the search. 

Tap "Identify" and watch for a white flashing light on the face of the Smart Vent you're trying to connect. Once identified, check the box next to the Smart Vent that appears during the search.

To add a smart thermostat:

The Smart Vent System currently integrates with ecobee and the Nest Learning Thermostat. The instructions below apply to integrating with ecobee and Nest, but will be similar for other thermostats we anticipate integrating in the near future.

Tap “Add Smart Thermostat” on the top left corner or bottom of the Home Controls screen, or at the very bottom of the "Connected Devices" screen. 

Follow the onscreen instructions to sign into your ecobee or Nest account and finish setup.

With your thermostat connected to your Smart Vents, you can control the base temperature of your home and switch your thermostat from Away to Home mode to preheat rooms on your way home from work. When your Smart Vents are set to Balance Mode while connected to a smart thermostat, they will automatically detect whether your home is being heated or cooled and will use the thermostat’s temperature setting as a base for temperature offset calculations.

To add a repeater:

You add a repeater similar to how you add a Smart Vent.

  1. Make sure the repeater (an additional Smart Bridge) is connected to power but is not connected to an Ethernet port.
  2. From the Home view, tap on the name of the room in which you'd like to add your repeater.
  3. Tap + ADD SMART DEVICES, and then "Find Smart Devices"
  4. The repeater should appear after a few moments of searching.
  5. Tap the circle next to the repeater until a check appears.
  6. Tap "Add Selected" and you should be all set!

You should immediately notice a better connection between the Smart Bridge and Smart Vents.
