May understanding of Energy IQ is its a bit like a smart meter. If you look at it regularly it can show you what you have used and what is forecast. So some use, but making a system more efficient should be the main aim. Hence the need yo geofence radiator thermostats.
interesting that the sales pitch for rad thermostats is a little misleading about their integration and lack of geofencing
thanks for suggestion
Thanks for your transparency! I get it that being open is hard and doesn't feel comfortable for most of us.
If you need help in lobbying, feel free to reach out. I've got some experience in helping companies in these kind of things.
@fairchildberlin can IFTTT make the heating resume to the normal schedule when you return. What ever state that should be (on/off/set temp etc)?
Would like to see this too - only I use my office so no point heating it if I'm not in
Tado already supports geo-fencing at the home level and also allows multiple individuals to be registered in the home. It just needs to extend the software to allow specific room's geo-fence option to be associated with selected people (or none or all people) who are already registered to the home. Will take some effort in both the app and the backend for sure, but clearly is not rocket science.
Really about time the geofence option available individual or grouped radiator thermostats. Obvious feature that would complete radiator thermostat integration and make their expensive purchase probably just about worthwhile.
This has been a feature request for a long time now. Understand not every request can be actioned, but does seem like a very logical step to make control comprehensive.
Would be a good to have this. Geofencing: I would like to connect a phone to a room or rooms. My doughter likes it very warm in her room, when she leaves I would like to set her room in away mode. Just her room till all leaves the house.
exactly! just whats needed for many households
So here is the usual scenario for me and I suspect many households. Three bedrooms. Im home, but both J and S are out. I remembered to manually turn of J's room, and will manually turn it back on when he is home if I remember. S is out for the day I think, and often goes away for a few days. So have to manually turn his room off too. Whats the point of all the tech, if the only way round - because geofencing to rad valves is missing - is to manually adjust the settings?
Only if you have a regular schedule do Tado rad thermostats make sense. The whole idea of geofencing is to get round that!
Have I missed something?
Please add this feature, I would really appreciate it because this is something that would make dramatically sense
yes agree totally. Part of that could also to be able to set a max temp. currently its 25 which also means kids etc can put temp up to silly levels...
Is it my own fault - definitely
Just installed 4 thermostats today, know i have users, know i have rooms, absolute basic assumption that individual geofencing exists!
Now discover it does not exist and has been on the roadmap for three years already, quite irritated.
Wondering if to remove the whole lot and send it back, this is not a difficult programming task, the information needed already exists in the app.
Seriously disappointing and totally difficult to understand
So theoretically when one person leaves it can turn off their room, but leave the rest on?
That would at least be workable
