Hi Rob, any update on the connectivity status? I currently have my bridge strung up unattractively in my living room so that it can - just - reach throughout our house.
Tado is a great system - except for this one very weak point. Surely you are moving forward on a better solution?!
Just came here to say, that connection is much more stable lately to all of my Smart radiators. I mean on the Tado app as well on the Apple Homekit app. Well done!
Even as I mentioned before, i only have Smart Radiators on the 2 bottom floors of my house. (my house has 4 floors) and still waiting Tado to release updated products (range extender, additional home hub our whatever) so that I can expand the system to all floors of my house.
I am very worried about the system, we are trailing it against Honeywell Evohome and whilst the app and pretty graphs are streets ahead in technical terms the Honeywell Evohome system leaves Tado standing
Not impressed after 3 days will be sending it all back to Amazon
Our test property has 12 radiators downstairs and on a second circuit upstairs 9 radiators so that is two Tado receivers - I think we will need to pray!
So I cannot as a business recommend the same
The householder has told us to remove the same !!

Have you carried out a search of the Community Forum for other requests for this..........please add your VOTE to an already opened request.........otherwise your "new request" will not achieve enough votes to even register on tado°s list of customer generated requirements.
It now appears that either you or a tado° moderator/admin has added your original post into this thread 👍
Have you added your VOTE to this thread ?? 🤔
+1 Need say no more?!
This would actually be tremendous, and means MORE SALES... surely a good thing for TADO?!
What is the issue? IPSEC VPN tunnels? Texas Instruments relay chip? Loadbalancer tech? BGP gateways? Link State tech... there are dozens of ways to solve it...
Other suppliers obviously exist...
Agree. A repeater is a fundamental basic requirement for a system like this. Other home automation systems have it - e.g. Lutron lighting works fine. Many customers must have larger homes - why is Tado clearly ignoring the needs of these customers?
From time to time I notice wireless blackout periods for one of the system devices. It would be great if the system issues a push notification when a communication error happens with one device, not just a transient warning red dot in the settings screen.
It would be a great improvement if for all wireless devices the signal strength is displayed (or the error rate). Maybe due to the size of my house (1500 m3) and/or interference with my alarm system the wireless environment seems not optimal. An option could be relay transmitters.
I agree with the above. How hard can it be to connect devices to multiple bridges? Wifi uses multiple AP's, Zigbee allows for multiple bridges. Messing around with finding the best location for the bridge is not practical, unless you have a simple detector that shows the quality (BER) of the specific radio signal that is used to connect all the Tado sensors to the bridge.
Perhaps the simplest way it to allow for additional bridges in the app, linked to the same account. In the app we should be able to set-up an additional bridge and then add devices to one of those bridges.
2022-23 will be my fourth "winter season" with Tado. Even if last year was somewhat better, presumably due to firmware fixes, I'd still sleep better if I didn't have to worry that a TRV or a wireless temp sensor would lose connectivity in the middle of the night. It's kind of annoying that we still need to ask for this and can't even get some high level roadmap (will we get it this year? will it be backwards compatible to our existing TRVs and extension kits? if not, will there be some buyback plan? etc.)
