Energy IQ - dual rate

Options

I just want to suggest that in your energy IQ feature that you allow the user to enter two rates (a day rate and a night rate) if they are on an economy 7 energy deal. otherwise, this feature is useless to me.

Also, most people in the UK have a standing rate too.

    @GrayDav4276 question is though, WHY does it guesstimate all if we are using a OpenTherm link, as it knows what gas is been consumed for each Heating and Water.

    @GrayDav4276 OpenTherm knows what the boiler was fired up for (digital link does not use the CH or HW relays), and can send this data to the thermostat. It would just be a matter of Tado˚ using this data.

    There is all sorts of data that is provided by OpenTherm that Tado˚ could use in it's IQ section.

    @GrayDav4276 Yes, you are correct, the gas does not have a night/day rate. I must have been having a moment!

    However the issue does remain that there is a standing charge for gas which could be incorporated.

    I have a Tado connected to an electric boiler used to heat a wet system (radiators). That is pretty common in UK city centre apartments. Energy IQ should be able to differenciate energy prices in homes where there is no gas so this would be a welcome new feature. Even better if Tado could be connected to a clamp on sensor to measure actual energy usage. I use a Shelly EM sensor for that purpose but I don't see any API integration for Tado's Energy IQ.
