Disable Manual Temperature Changes To Radiator Smart TRV

Does anyone want to take my 2 year old daughter and teach her to not touch the TRVs?


In the absence of any offers, can anyone suggest a way to disable manual changes to the temperature setting on the rads and allow changes through the app only?


Right now it is summer and the heating is off. But I fear that my daughter is going to cost me a fortune in oil when the heating is on by randomly turning the heat to 25C in some of the rooms.


I get no warnings from the app that anything has changed so I am completely unaware of any changes until I happen to open the app.

    Hi,

    Until the child-lock is finally released, what you could do is set the manual behaviour for the zones to start a timer for 1 minute. This way, after 60 seconds, it goes back to the scheduled setting. If the internet is disconnected, the timer won't engage, so there is no risk.

    Best regards,

    Frank

  • Yeah, I tried that but did not see it return to the schedule after the allotted 60 seconds.


    Let's see if this child lock is released before winter....

    Hello Catfunt,

    Once the timer adjusted via de setting "Manual Control in the tado device" expires, the system should go back to follow the schedule.


    If this didn't happen, please contact our support about it with the details of when did it happen:

  • I've just tried it.


    I set the timer to 1 minute and then placed the Lounge on the schedule. I then turned the temperature up and the app showed it would remain at the higher temperature for 5 minutes.


    So the change of temperature via the app over-rode the timer. Thus, the timer doesn't work.


    If you want me to do it again and upload screenshots please let me know,

  • Here you go - check the timestamps on each screenshot and you'll see they've all been done in the last few seconds...
