Which tado bits are required
I was using tado for about 5 years in a previous home, and will be buying the tado kit for my next property. My previous property was a single-floor apartment with combi boiler, I installed the following tado bits: smart internet bridge, smart thermostat in hallway (wired to a combi boiler which was in the kitchen), smart radiator valves on every radiator (including the hallway radiator where the wired smart thermostat was situated). I kept the smart thermostat permantely set to frost protect, to stop this taking over the temperature control of the hallway smart radiator valve.
My question is this: Was this setup perfectly acceptable, or could I have found a simpler solution with tado?
Am I correct in assuming the smart thermostat is needed for all of the smart radiator valves to communicate with the combi boiler (calling for heat) ? If this statement is correct, could the smart thermostat have been installed next to the combi boiler (in the kitchen), because it is only a communication link for the smart radiator valves to the combi boiler?
Or, can the smart radiator valves communicate directly with a wireless add on receiver (removing the smart thermostat from the equation)?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
