Heating profiles

Please add a function for multiple profiles for heating schedules based on 1 week of heating schedules being different to another week of heating schedules based on work patterns etc . I know there is the geo fencing function but that relies on people having that opinion turned on. In my experience younger members of the family do not have the tado heating app on their phones so geo fencing doesn’t work as it should, changing a heating schedule profile would be an easy way to alter the heating all at the same time. Thank you

  • You have the facility for 3 separate schedules for each tado room......how many do you need ??🤔
  • Sorry, I agree with Silverwulfx. Having multiple heating profiles would be a game changer. I don't see how we already have three separate schedules. I see only two profiles, Home and Away; sure, you can set different schedules for different days, but that is not what the OP is requesting.

    Use case

    I work from home most of the time, and as such, I would prefer to have a profile which only heats the parts of the house I use regularly; the rest of the house can be on a set-back temperature until the rest of the family comes home from school.

    During school holidays, when everyone is at home (my wife is a teacher, so she is also at home), I would prefer to have a different profile with different set-points for rooms I don't normally use.

    I may also want a Summer schedule, which will predominantly control only the hot water, leaving the heating off.

    Over Christmas, when we had guests, I overrode my normal profile by abusing the Away profile, which allowed me to set a higher temperature than I would normally have set. It was like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut; I just had to remember to return it to the Home profile to restore the heating.

    I have considered using integrations like IFTT to fake a profile by changing the set points on a schedule, but then I lose the early start functionality, which ensures my underfloor heating has time to reach its desired temperature.

    I can't see the difference between having one profile and multiple inactive profiles, this could be implemented as a set of profile templates, allowing you to change all the rooms in the Home profile in bulk to a different template. Once set, you can make changes to the Home profile without affecting the stored template; you should also be able to save the Home profile as a new template or replace an existing template. There is already functionality to copy/paste individual and room schedules from one day/room to another, this could reuse much of that functionality.

  • There are 3 schedules for each room...
    1. Mon - Sun
    2. M-T-W-T-F-S-S
    3. M-F & Sat & Sun
    Each one could be used as your required function......
    I appreciate that it requires a little bit of work to complete but it can do the job.
    Or you can wait for tado to integrate what you think is possible....but you'll have a very long wait.
