Thanks for that. Interesting.
Though I am kind if giving up after asking for years. Its expensive to ditch tado and move on, but am going to look at options
And although its not possible I understand for tado to respond to all the chat here, I do think when a feature request has been asked for so many times but so many people, a response might be sensible and courteous.
is the simplest way to just allow an individual user to:
toggle on or off a switch named say 'my geofencing'
then allow each user to select which rooms they geofence.
if a room has anyone at home and selected for geofencing then its on. If not then the room is off.
What would be good is if you click on upvote on page 1 ion this thread. If you haven't already!!
In fact if everyone that posted did that might really help!
IFTTT is very straight forward in the app - for Tado I use the location trigger and whenever I exit or enter a certain area (a 150 m circle around my apartment) heating is set to off or back to automation PER ROOM. Very much like the Tados solution. Very easy and intuitive to set up indeed - up to 5 triggers are free
I wonder if you could explain how to do this?
I went to apple HomeKit and 'add accessory'. I tried adding a radiator thermostat, just as a guess, but the qr code would not scan. And holding near didn't work either..
Im thinking that is the right thing to do first?
..need V3+ bridge I understand...as all communication via the bridge...
do go to page 1 of this thread and upvote!!!
Even though already the system is surprisingly complex when you explore it - esp from the ist incarnation, whats odd about this feature is that its potentially fuel saving, and its about automation not manual control -set and leave alone - the original premise of tado way back.
someone mentioned the privacy issue, but dont quite see the issue with that already out of the bag with geofencing by household..
anyway, click upvote!
I have the IFTTT app working of sorts (when it bothers to run lol. Been OK today so hopefully working). My next test is to get it on the kids phones to see if that works.
@Ksobier you can just do that with exlcude his room from the away mode.
Im in agreement...Understand people get frustrated...
Impressive and disapointing that this does not already exist
yes impressive to have such an omission!
please do go to the first page of this thread and upvote!!
excellent! More votes the better!
Tado, this is a really popular feature request that: could save a lot of people money, reduce CO2 emissions, and much of the functionality is already built (geo fencing, per room scheduling etc.).
What's the problem?
Do you need more developers? Hit me up, let's get this built!
