Manual Use of Thermostat

Can I set the thermostat to away mode from the thermostat itself manually?

I used to do this in my old analogic thermostat by setting it to a low temperature. This would avoid my use of geofencing which consumes battery excessively from my phone.

    @Horacio You can get hold of the beta with the home/away switch. Use the app at 'More'


  • Thank you @samd , I am using the beta. But was just looking for a way to not be accessing the phone all the time. Thought that maybe the same ability to do so, but with the main button of the main thermostat would also be useful.

    @Horacio There are 2 different modes in which tado operates:

    1. The boiler-controlling wall smart thermostat has to be calling for heat in order for smart tado TRVs to get the heat they require. OR
    2. All tado devices can call for heat regardless of the position of the boiler-controlling thermostat.

    If your setup is as No 1, then a low setting would do exactly what you want.

  • I have a similar question but I am sure of what my set up is

    @salbluez Can you expand on that a bit? What tado kit do you have etc?
