Improve “Open Window Detection”

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?

    Please carry out a forum search for this Open Window Detection has been well discussed.

    The tado° "Open Window Detection" feature is not actually an "Open Window" is a feature that is activated by the tado° device detecting a "significant sharp drop in temperature" you can have an "Open Window Detection notification" that is generated by a draught from an open door etc........for example, when I let my dog out into the back garden, the open back door will produce an "Open Window Detection" notification.

    Also you can have an open window in a room while your tado° device is "Calling for heat"......and because the Open Window is not creating a "significant sharp drop in temperature"....... you won't get a notification.

    This particular tado° feature is NOT acting as it is "sold by tado°" to it's potential new's a sales gimmick !!!

  • 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.
