Improve “Open Window Detection”

Options
In a room with active "Open Window Detection" I opened the window while heating was off in the current schedule slot. The open window was not detected and the heating turned on with the next schedule slot a few minutes later. The detection should work regardless of the current state of schedule as long as heating is not disabled completely manually be the user.
What do you think?

    Until Tado provides a physical window sensor or allows connection to third party ones, as @GrayDav4276 says this is more of a marketing gimmick.

    Yeah, it is generalky not worth the hassle to keep turned on. Too many false positives/negatives, although it might work in some cases.

    I agree the only way for the open window function to be 100% accurate is for Tado to manufacture a window sensors. Also this could double up as door sensors open/close that can be linked to a smart alarm. Tado is missing out and has stopped innovating. Ps: Water leak detector would also tie in nicely. Overall still better than my form Nest V3.

    With the current device & bridge limitations I see no future for tado° v3+ sensors.

    For the time being check Aqara instead.
