Allow naming of smart radiator thermostat

Options
It would be really good if I could assign names to all of my smart thermostats.
It would make it so much easier to identify which one needs its batteries changed.

    Unless you have lots of SRTs per room I'm not sure that I understand the problem. My rooms are named and it is easy to spot which devices need new batteries.

    I agree with the original idea. The serial numbers have worn off the stickers on mine and so I have to go into the app and get the thermostat to flash 'Hi' to identify the one which needs its batteries changing. I have a number of rooms with two radiator thermostats as can bee seen in the attachment. Just let me name them 'Rad near door' or 'Rad near window' or whatever I want so I can easily identify them.

    I also need this feature, it's painful to find the TRV needing new batteries in a large area with 4 radiators - some hidden behind a cover. I need to walk around the room and test with the 'hi'. Adding a name/label field to the app seems easy enough and would remove a lot of frustration!

    I'm a volunteer to alpha/betatest the feature.

  • I can second this!

    This is a poor design as I NEVER know which devices TADO refers to, when it gives me a serial number as a descriptor! 🤦🏼‍♂️

    The message for replacing thermostat batteries should be along the lines of “Your X room radiator Z needs new batteries”, rather than a useless message like “your radiator xncxrjbvshj needs new batteries”.

    Nobody cares about the radiator serial number, and has no purpose! (It could be provided for anyone interested in a details section, but otherwise please let your customers use some LOGICAL, HUMAN descriptors!)

    Thank you
  • The serial numbers are challenging to locate, leading me to manually search each one. This process isn't user-friendly. Allowing us to rename them would greatly improve user experience.
  • I think this would be very helpful too. I have 3 rads with TRVs in the same room with a separate wall thermostat all assigned to the same room.
    When a TRV needs a battery replacing it would be great to be able to identify which one it is without having to use the flashing “hi” function one on each one.
  • Although not a great solution, I just added every radiator to its own room e.g. Living Room Left, Living Room Right, Dining Area, which are all in the same room.

    Works well for my few radiators.
