Smart AC Thermostat Battery Pack & Homekit Upgrade
I'm a tado enthusiast and I built quite an ecosystem at home: always felt that tado products have an extra kick both in design and experience customization which made me choose them above the competitors.
I was a bit turned off by the Smart AC Thermostat USB cable hanging along the wall and plugged in the adapter (tiny, but still)... so I got an idea: wouldn't it be great to develop a battery pack to fit in the back of the device which would allow it a slick and clean look (such as the regular Thermostat)? I believe it should be possibile to achieve a successful product given the way the AC Thermostat is built and the thin shape it has would allow for it to gain an extra layer without losing its design.
As for the Homekit upgrade idea: I'm not aware of all the possibilities Homekit has about AC but I know for sure that it does support both Temperature AND fan options (as shown by Mysa Smart Thermostat for AC https://shop.getmysa.com/products/mysa-ac?country=CA). It would be great for all of us Homekit users to have the best integration possibile as we have for the heating devices.
I do understand that developing a whole new product to integrate an existing one might sound crazy, but I'm sure I'm not the only one hating that cable.
As for the Homekit update: I believe it only makes sense to take full advantage of this major platform!
Thank you all!
