can I switch the heating on/off whilst not at home?

Options

I'm thinking of installing Tado for my AC system at home.

If the Tado is properly connected to wifi etc, and I'm not at home, can I turn it on/off or do I need to be connected to the home wifi, meaning do I need to be home?

    Tado doesn't really use wifi, the bridge connects to the internet via ethernet to your router so wherever you are, at home or away, with an internet connection you can access your schedules etc.

  • Amazing, Sam. Thanks a lot. The bit about the ethernet I don't quite understand. I didn't think there would be a connection by cable... 🤔

    I'm thinking of installing 5 of these for my 5 A/C machines: https://shop.tado.com/es-row/products/smart-ac-control-v3

    You're saying I can turn it on/off away from home so long as my internet is working at home and on my phone

    Yes, as long as your bridge is connected to the internet, you can remotely control everything as long as you are logged in (your app) on another device connected to the internet (your phone).
  • Amazing. thanks Nasnl
