The tado operates both as a control over your central heating, but also as a personal heating assistant. This smart heating thermostat, has a number of features aimed at providing comfort whilst maintaining energy efficiency. One of the features the tado incorporates is learning your building and your lifestyle, from the moment you first turn it on.
The tado observes a number of factors, these include geolocation and checking the weather forecast to save energy and keep your homes temperature at a comfortable level. The geolocation events allow the tado to reduce temperatures to optimal levels, when you are not home and pre-warm your home for your return. The constant monitoring of weather forecasts allows the tado to change its behaviour, allowing the sun to naturally heat your home, whilst also greatly improving upon frost protection. The tado's adaptability makes it perfect for underfloor heating, or multizonal setups (requires additional tado v2).
The presence detection also offers the ability for other residents to detect who is home, preventing accidental overrides or temperature changes. Both optimal/comfort and manual control are possible via the app, allowing you to set custom sleep times to provide night time temperatures to fit your lifestyle, allowing you to wake up to a set temperature.
The tado has been designed to help you reduce your heating bill, generating a report showing when and why heating has been on, whilst giving you a detailed overview of heating costs and performance of your home. This even allows you to monitor how the sun has effected your heating, showing how much you save. The temperature sensor of the tado is solar powered, further lowering energy costs.
The tado does not have any annual fee/subscription, it is a solution to home heating that adjusts both your heating costs and comforts.
How can I control the tado v1?
Controlling your smart heating could not be easier. The tado v1 gives you full access to your home’s central heating, when you need it, wherever you are. An intuitive app, available for free, allows you to access and control your system from multiple devices simultaneously. Compatible with any iOS 7.1 device or higher including iPhones, iPods and iPads, Android devices running 2.3 and higher and any Windows smart phone. Control your smart heating over Wi-Fi as well as 3G/4G. You never have to worry about accidently leaving the heating on, saving on your heating bill and reducing your carbon footprint.
The tado also supports IFTTT (if this then do that) and an API (application program interface), allowing it to control and be connected to other home automation devices as well as expanding supported smart devices. This tool allows you to string together custom tasks from apps, websites and devices. For example, the geolocation data produced by the tado app, could be setup to automatically switch off smart lighting or reroute landline calls to your mobile when you exit your home, whilst placing your home heating to savings mode.
The tado v1 does not feature on-board controls, which is a feature that exists in the newer generation models (A39RX)
Will the tado v1 work with my existing central heating system?
The tado v1 is compatible with almost all systems: combi, system and heat-only boilers, conventional and condensing boilers, zoned systems, hydronic and electric underfloor systems and heat pumps.
For multizone installations, additional zones will require a tado v2, the modular design will allow the different thermostats to control heating of rooms independently or sync with each other, giving a more granular control of heating.
Upgrading from an existing wired thermostat, the tado can replace wired, analogue, and digital or relay controlled units. When replacing wireless thermostats, or setups where there is no existing thermostats, you will require the tado extension unit (not supplied).
The tado extension unit is a direct replacement for the basic time (mechanical) clock or blanking plate usually supplied with some boilers. It is suitable for both combination and system boilers and requires no rewiring.
How do I install the device?
The tado is designed to replace existing wired thermostats, with documentation and videos to assist in DIY installations across analogue, digital and replay systems. It must be fitted by a competent person, and installation must comply with the guidance provided in the current IEE Wiring Regulations and current Building Regulations. The tado offers a professional installation service, allowing you to book a tado certified installer, which is available directly through tado.
