I am using Tado in combination with Google home and Smartthing / webcore
I prefer HomeKit which I have voted for but I am also planning to implement Athom Homey and probably also Home Assistant. It would be great to see more support for these by Tado as well.
I am actively using Home Assistant and Node-Red for controlling Tado. It works pretty well but I would appreciate official API to be finally published.
I have tried repeatedly to set up Homekit with Tado, but Homekit doesn't recognise the Tado bridge. It works well with Alexa, so I'll have to stick with that.
I have used Alexa and google, but I try and avoid using any manual controls. Better automation should mean I never need to manually control, via app or voice.
Ditto. Another Home Assistant fan here
Home Assistant would be my choice.
The only way to get good programmable control of smart homes is to use SmartThings/webCoRE.
Please, PLEASE integrate with SmartThings.
Also, I'm currently using Google Home for speech control, but could just as easily be Echo or HA.
I love my tado - the house is full of it! Integration of the best heating control system (tado, of course) with the best fully flexible smart home system (SmartThings/webCoRE) would really be a world beating system.
I use Alexa, it works pretty well, no complaints.
Athom Homey Pro, really fed up with Alexa
I'm using Alexa as that is the home assistant platform I bought into a few years back and have various home automation tasks setup. Its painless, it works as in I can ask that a light turns on or off, temperature is set etc, etc
I have messed about with IFTTT for other automated sequences that look to my energy costs (Octopus Agile) and control a switch for the hot tub, that change paid for the wireless 16A switch in less than a month
As others have said, no complaints and in reality...it's a method to control a heating & hot water system that provides a finer level of control than legacy thermostats / TRVs, perhaps i'm missing something but what more do people need to do with it?
I use Alexa and Google Home in equal measure, favouring each one for different things.
I would say that Google Home does have the edge over Alexa for most things we use - Tado, security camera arm/disarm and lights. Google's weather data is also much more on point, and navigation.
In fact, while we do still use Alexa for lights, I have removed all the thermostats from Alexa and have them solely in Google Home. However, I still prefer to use the Tado app for Tado, rather than voice commands, as then I can see exactly the consequences of my request and how long my overrides will remain in place. Sometimes voice commands have unintended outcomes and no clue that the wrong thing happened.
