Local Access to bridge
I'd love to see local access to my Tado setup. It does not make sense to me to have no remote capabilities at all without an internetconnection.
Nowadays internet is pretty stable but it is still possible that either the servers, an ISP or something else breaks and takes down the remote capabilities of Tado with it.
Local access is not only a backup but also a faster way of communicating with the bridge when at home.
Using the app to connect to servers to connect to the bridge makes no sense at home since app to bridge is much faster.
Also it enables proper offline integration in home automation platforms such as Home Assistant.
I agree that online services add value, such as firmware updates and troubleshooting. I just think that products can be much better if we do not have a big restriction on the offline capabilities.
