From the website.
"The right fit for every home
Heating systems are all different. However, tado° products fit every system. Additionally, they ensure optimally air-conditioned rooms with no hassle or high costs."
This is clearly false, can be demonstrated as such and is evidenced by this thread and should be removed as it is clearly NOT the right fit for every home.
One more vote for some kind of multiple bridge/extender/mesh support. We really need this!
Another vote here: 18 valves, 2 temp sensors, one thermostat and 1 wireles receiver. quite an investment and good were it not for two valves in the other part of the house constantly loosing connection. Range extender is a must and should be a no-brainer.
I vote to be able to have multiple properties on the one account. This logging in and out depending on where you are is a pita
Same here, struggling for range.
The gateway is in the corner of house where the internet router is, the furthest room intermittently disconnects. So I would expect it to be better if I could get the gateway in the middle of the house, but I don't imagine many houses have a convenient ethernet connection in the centre.
I'm going to try moving the gateway and if it comes to it will use a Wi-Fi or power line adapter to mount it centrally, but it's not very neat.
When it comes to positioning the gateway itself, the design seems strange. The guidance is to mount it vertically, but there's no stand and the wires come straight out the bottom, so there's no obvious way to even do this.
Another vote from me. Just extended my system with additional valves, but no way to get them connected properly for more than 5minutes. Moving the bridge doesn't solve it, since that move other valves out of range. The bridge is already centrally located in our U-shaped house.
I really struggle to understand why there has been so little progress on such an essential feature that has been reported and up-voted so many times by so many users.
Same here.. have a long house, went very hot in my bedroom and it wasn't me or my girlfriend.
I'm seeing improvements in my TRV connectivity. I moved my internet bridge to the loft (which was a job and a half!). Initially I didn't see much of an improvement but a couple of firmware updates later (internet bridge on 92.1 and most TRV's on 93.1) I'm seeing dropouts still, but way less in duration.
Previously I'd lose some TRV's for 20 out of 24 hours for no reason. 2 days later they'd worked solidly. Now I'm seeing "blips" and the frequency of connectivity loss is much lower and for a lower duration of time.
Still not "pleased" as I'd expect zero dropouts given the investment but the mornings of <12c rooms because the TRV's failed to kick in is reduced = much happier family. Wife still wants me to rip it all out though :)

my wife wants me to ebay the whole lot.
You have strong wifes! My wife left me because she was tired of having cold feet. Tado-support couldn't help me...
Thanks @Pete I might venture back up and add that. Our loft space is not human friendly but I think I can get a board on a beam above the internet bridge. Out of interest, roughly what size board did you use?
@Robbie Now you can move the girlfriend in!😂
