love tado :) here’s my thinking.
i have blocks in the schedule and sometimes once i know we’re done with a room for the day, i knock down the temp for the current thermostat earlier than it would in the schedule.
it would be great to be able to hit a button for a room to be able to skip on to the next block prematurely.. so once i’m done with a room at 21C for the day, i can nudge it into the nighttime block of 17C without having to manually adjust the temp to 17 on the current block..
this is more of an issue when there are multiple rooms to drop down.
hope that makes sense.
Thank you for my eyes.
I searched but failed to find similar though I suspect it is here somewhere.....
In a room where there are multiple tado devices (my open plan ground floor has 1 thermostat and 3 trvs) if one device becomes disconnected the entire room is impossible to access. This seems mad.
I can't find out the current temperature despite in my case the room having 3 sensors.
You can't activate or turn off the remaining working devices
You can't even leave an instruction which will be enacted when the missing device comes back online.
If the room has disconnected devices but at least one still working I think the UI should a different 'partly active' icon, a temperature if available (even from a trv if the remote thermostat is down) and still take instructions (with a warning that they can't be acted upon yet or might only partly work.
Thread should also help grow network size without overwhelming the system as it becomes more resilient.
The fact that we can use IFTTT, Google Home , and some homeassistant features to do this tells me it cant be that difficult.
Most houses in the UK have 2 floors - upstairs and downstairs.
Most of us want to heat only the upstairs at night when we are going to be there, and the downstairs in the day.
Currently I have TRVs on all my radiators (8) so if I want to make upstairs hotter I need to click on 4 different tiles in the app and set a temp/time - this is really difficult and quite frankly a pain in the butt.
It is surely not that difficult to allow us to just send a command 'set upstairs to 22 degrees for 2 hours' via your app and it really isnt right to be leaving this to third party developers as it really cant be that difficult to do.
We have the Extension Kit controlling our heating and hot water. There is no way of telling when the hot water has called for heat. The app doesn't show anything as far as I can see other than off or on.
I've seen other people have used a sonoff device in addition to monitor temps, and even to control the on off via the extension kit.
It would be good to use a Tado cylinder tank thermostat instead of needing a 3rd party piece of hardware and software to see the above.
Are Tado considering a tank thermostat or adding more days to the app in regards to hot water heating?
