Thermostat Display Always on

The Display of the Smart Thermostat is only visible when Push button.

My former Thermostat was a 'Toon" and we used to look at time and temp when ever in the room.

The New Tado does have a fancy look, but I would like to havethe display to be always on (and if possibel off during night-time/when not home). So maybe it can be arranged to have this as a option in the settings?

  • I don’t know what a toon is but unless Tado makes a mains powered thermostat or one with an e ink display like netatmo, I don’t think this will be a possibility.
  • "Toon" is kind of similair like google nest. Its a smart display, wall mounted and also as thermostat implemented, It also can read smart meters from gas and electra delivery. My reasson to implement Tado is the smart radiator thermostat's. I needed that for separate temp's in couple of rooms/Atelier. And sad enough "Toon " is not working with smart radiator thermosats.

  • I would like to see this implemented as well please......

    Only the tado° AC controller is mains powered.....all other wall mounted tado° thermostats are battery powered and cannot realistically support an "always on" display.....the battery power consumption would mean replacing batteries at a ridiculous rate.

  • You say that 'always on' would consume too much battery energy but... Do you know this? Or is this an assumption? I have a ThermPro hygrometer base station with a large display and less battery power - and it lasts several months
  • I believe that even tado° gave this as a reason for not providing "always on"

    An LCD screen with no backlight / backlight only turning on when you push the button and just a few 7 segment numbers and some icons would work fine (80's watch), e-ink would be great especially if no seconds displayed, unfortunatly the display use rather bright leds, so likely would eat batteries if always on.
  • I agree with this. Missing the quick look in the display when you walk passed the thermostat.

    Just stick something like this next to it.

    or its little brother at half the price:

    Both do BLE, and seems you can interface with them from your home-control computer too, not just the app. Too bad tado won't let you use these as sensors...

    There are also non-bluetooth versions if you don't need it and just want an always on display.
  • I have a wired smart thermostat and it recieves its power from the boiler though the same wires - no batteries - like many systems.

    I would love to see the temperature displayed continuously - But Tado should make it an option, so all the people who do not want it do not need to post here against it…
