multi radiator room

I've just installed a Tado system to run heating and hot water for the house and all is working fine.

However, as part of the system we have installed, we have one large-ish room which has two radiators, each of has been fitted with a a Tado Smart TRV (so two in total in that room). Is it possible to pair them so that they work together to reach the same temperature in that room? Or should we just leave them to run separately but with the same temperature set independently on each?


Thanks

  • Yes, you should group the two TRVs to be in the same room. They will operate in sync to open and close the radiator valves, but only one of TRVs will operate as the temperature sensor for the room. Decide which TRV is best located to measure the room temperature and then ask Tado support to make the configuration change for you.

  • Thanks - will try that.

    If you have to ask Tado to configure this on your behalf it indicates that their software and user interface is at fault since a proper design would let the user do this themselves.

    I therefore hope Tado are reading this and take action to improve this.

    I do have a room that will require this so thanks for the information.

  • As above, as someone in to home automation, I have dipped my toe in to a Tado system (Thermostat/TRV Starter pack), I've immediately run in to configuration issue because I had pre-wired the boiler for a wired thermostat (switched live for my boiler) and obviously as you are forced to go through the installation wizard all you can select is 'other' for the current thermostat and then it prompts you to contact support..

    On trying to then pick what I hoped was a switched live style thermostat (I chose badly) just to get through this, I have ended up in a right configuration pickle to which I have no access to resolve, and I've been waiting hours for support to email me back (because their phone line just tells you to use chat now!).


    I don't know why there is not an advanced installer section to the web-app that any user can access and from that you can set all teh heating zones, assign TRV's to those, and configure everything as you need. They can keep support open for those that need them to do it, but for anyone used to this kind of thing, the freedom to set it up yourself would be game changing..
