What pairs to what?
Hi, when I am installing Tado devices do their pair to my Wifi or to the internet bridge.
I am confused with this.
When I set up my first Smart TRV I activated pairing on my router by pressing the WPS button and then activated pairing on the TRV by pressing the small button inside. This seems to work. I did not active pairing on the Tado internet bridge.
Anyway, I was concerned as the new network equipment I plan to use does not have a WPS button due to the security risks inherent with this protocol and I was wondering how I would pair the devices.
So then I was connecting up my extension kit and these instructions (https://support.tado.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360000663506) say to active pairing on the Tado internet bridge.
I have since checked my routers connected devices list and can only see one Tado device which is the internet bridge.
I have no idea how any of this stuff paired as I did not have pairing mode active on my internet bridge, yet as the devices do not appear on my routers devices list.
So my question is: when pairing do Tado devices pair to your router or the internet bridge?
I'm guessing the internet bridge but really I do not understand how I ever got connected as I have never activated pairing mode on the bridge!
