Real window sensors from tado

We would like a real window / door sensor for the "window open function".

The current detection of the open windows via the thermostats works so far quite well. However, we have discovered some problems.

1. In some rooms the detection of an open window does not work or does it too late (e.g. bathroom, room with balcony or outside doors, window sills)

2. a timer is not useful because I don't know how long the window stays open. If it is a bit warmer, it can happen that I have the window open for hours.

Window sensors report immediately when opening and shooting.

Thus, a window can be forgotten without the warm air disappearing through the open window.

A push message can also be sent that a window is open.

  • Agreed. But the one built in, should just be working on by its self

    How do you mean?

    Am I the only one here who wants a window sensor directly from tado?

  • Same here. I often leave the back door open for my dogs when it’s warm outside. If I don’t close it before the outside temperature drops the radiators happily try to heat the entire town.

    That's exactly what I mean.

    It doesn't matter whether I have the window open for a short or long time. I don't want to switch off the heating every time or hope that tado will recognize my open windows and switch my heating on again after 30 minutes.

    Here I have to hope that I don't accidentally forget to close a window before I go to work. Otherwise, tado heats for outside all day.

    Window contacts would solve all of these problems.
