Individual Geofence Option

Hi. Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but would be great if you could set-up individual Geofencing capability for each individual Smart Radiator Thermostat. To explain, I am often away from home for several days at a time for work and would like to be able to automatically detect this and shut off the Radiator Thermostat heating in my office. Same for when my kids are away to Uni. The App should detect they are x miles away from home and not heat their bedrooms.

I have just installed Tado and am just finding my way around it, so maybe this is possible and I just haven't found how to do it yet!?

  • Same here...

    Just found out that the geofencing is only whole-house and not individual user/zone-based

  • This has been on the supposed road map for at least 3 years. It’s such an obvious requirement. Tado why is this taking so long?
  • This would also be useful for regular guests. They could trigger the Guest room schedule.

  • I would find this feature very useful. Please consider it for an upcoming release. My (grown up) children are often away from home for days/weeks/months at a time. While I can of course adjust the schedules for their rooms manually it would be great if the 'smart' system did I for me.

  • When my son leaves the house, his room zone should be turned off regardless presence of other family members.

    The living room should only turn off when nobody is at home.

    This can be done by have a setting that couples a users phone location to a number of zones iso all phones to all zones
  • I would REALLY love to see that function!

    We are four students living in a shared apartment. Everyone has his own room, so we would definitely benefit from an individualized geofencing. Would be good for our wallet, for our well-being and for climate also, since we're heating with natural gas. Also that's the main point, which makes tado unique, compared to other smart-heating-systems. Tado, why aren't you focusing onto your USP (unique selling point)?

    But as a matter of fact I installed tado three years ago, because this function had been on their former roadmap. So I don't think this will ever come.

  • Hello Tado, on your roadmap last year you have shown that you are planning to implement away/geofencing modes for each room for different users. This would mean that each specific room can be aligned to a specific user for the geofencing. We are 2 seperate parties living in my house (one party each floor) and I would like to activate the away mode on the ground floor for the party A and the away mode for the second floor for party B. Do you have an idea when this feature will be implemented?
  • Same experience, I hacked it by switching off the Tado geofencing and setting up a HomeKit scenario which even allows you to create a rule "When first/last of these people come/leaves". It is good for differentiating e.g. children room from other rooms, but it has not so granular geofencing settings and somewhat is glitchy sometimes.

  • Same for me, it would be a great addition!
