Improve heating algorithm to wind down heating power earlier, to prevent temperature overshooting

In using tado radiator valves and thermostat, I notice they almost always overshoot their intended temperature. That's usually because the heating power will remain at full strength almost until the temperature is reached. It would be better if the algorithm supports earlier wind down of the heating delivered so the temperature will be reached and not overshot so much. So far I don't think the algorithm is learning this on its own.

    After some thinking, it could also be another setting. A comfort setting would overshoot in order to keep the temperature comfortable longer. Eco mode would wind down earlier.

  • Yes, I find it annoying when it goes over and then you have to micromanage to ensure it goes off and then gets to the temperature you set.

    Also if I set my temperature a couple of decimal points below the reached temperature the heating does not go off and it sometimes seems you have very little control.

  • It look like it is an on/off control and not basically smart. By measuring the change of temperature in time the control of temperature can be adjusted. This is a feature we would aspect from a smart controlled thermostat. When will this be implemented.
