Tado away/home iOS shortcut action

Tado is somewhat compatible with HomeKit using sensors/thermostats individually, but this is not great to create automations.

It would be very useful to have a Tado shortcut action we can use in our scripts to set the current mode to be away or home, so we could create automations based on that.
This would be specially useful in case there are guests at home who are not on the Tado app. Such action could be triggered by a presence detector to set the appropriate temperature profile.

  • If you are happy with automation, setting up a homebridge on a raspberry pi (or a spare always on computer) and adding the Tado plugin will allow you to control away mode.

    This might conflict with Auto-Assist, a paid geofencing feature, so it's unlikely to be implemented
