Ive recently installed a full Tado system inc. hot water. I am now regreting doing this. Instead of making life easier, and lowering my heating costs it seems to have done the opposite.
Pre Tado, when I came home from work I dcould flcik one switch and the heating would come on, the whole house yes, but just one switch. If I clicked twice, it stayed on two hours, three clicks, three. With Tado, I must take out my phone, find the app, and manually switch on four or five tabs, one after the other.. I coud set schedules, but I dont work to schedules.
I understand that to automate, even sonething simple, I must pay extra. NO where did the pulicity say that the system was half baked, unless I paid a subscription. I have to use my iphone at least three times a day to do somethin that should be automatic.Switch am I home or away, put on the heating, switch to I am home.
I cannot recomend this nonsense to anyone realisticly, and as a designer I think the design of the App, and the whole ethos of the business is just poor. I had a button. It switched on the heat. Now I have step after step, before I can get to the same point. I suspect I will not buy firther thermopstats ( overpriced anyway) and reveert to my manual system.
