Matter support ok?

Options

Hi,

i'm considering buying a tado system but i'm wondering if the integration with the matter smart home standard is ok?

At this moment i don't want to buy devices that are not properly integrated so this is very important for me.

Thx 🙂

    As far as I know there won’t be matter support until the next generation of Tado hardware is released.

    For HomeKit (iOS) users, moving to Matter does not add any value and may remove some native features that HomeKit offers (and Matter does not), so the vast majority of users say that Matter is not worth the effort at this stage.

    Online forums / internal test groups / online reviews of HomeKit devices.

    Overall feedback - iOS user only? - Don't upgrade to Matter as there are no major benefits, but you may lose options such as adaptive lighting, etc. (features not related to tado°)

    It's the achievement of individual geofencing thats important and not currently available (ie individual control of rooms or groups of rooms rather than whole house - an asked for feature for years and years!). My understanding is that matter would allow this


    matter may or may not be important, but certainly features like above are, and not having endless bridges for different systems seems very important to me..

    For true SMART devices, the protocol is less relevant. What is important in my opinion is that LOCAL control is possible. This is something Tado decided to not support. You are at THEIR mercy for YOU being able to control YOUR device in YOUR network and YOUR house/property. Bummer right? I admit, i should have done my homework before buying. Anyway, https://community.tado.com/en-gb/discussion/15297/time-for-matter request 1 year ago did not get much traction, so probably the majority of the consumers either i. do not know what they want ii. they do not care. So Tado will continue....business as usual. From this point onward you can do only one thing: Choose a brand that offers local control with unrestricted functionality and Cloud control as extra.

    So we have:
    Choose a brand that offers local control with unrestricted functionality and Cloud control as extra.

    And I would add:
    And choose a brand that offers a range extender, or at least a stable connection between devices.

    Plus Matter. The interconnectivity between platforms matters :)
