The option is there, but it does not support tado's "Early Start" feature.
Agreed! AC features and alerts are pointless in most domestic UK installations, so there should be a way to disable that side of Tado.
Air comfort skill (if this is what you are referring to) has nothing to do with AC. It is just a feature that uses information on the internal humidity levels vs external air quality (obtained from somewhere? 😃) in order to assist you with improving the air quality in your home.
It basically is an indicator on when you should ventilate your home (aka the air is too humid and there are not so many pollutants outside).
Tado, temperature is set with a slider in the new app.
Most of the time it's "difficult" to exactly set the temperature.
Please make an option too that when the temperature is clicked on, it can be set with a keyboard function.
Thermostatic mode is good as it reacts to outside temperatures, which is important especially for Nordic countries. But not-thermostatic mode is often nicer as it keeps the AC running continuously (no beeps and temp changes) and might be more energy efficient with inverter models (someone told me).
What would be needed is a combination, hybrid (thermostatic) mode. AC would be set to wanted target temperature but Tado would adjust it to warmer or cooler based on the outside temperature and also the distance between Tado and AC. Best of both worlds and based on some quite simple algorithm it should be able to handle both bigger and smaller adjustments.
When doing this it might sense to consider to be able to set Tado to do only cooling or heating to avoid unnecessary cooling for example when using fireplace or other sources of heating (or cooling).
I think same idea has already been presented but thought to clarify it a bit.
Thanks for this suggestion - I didn't know this was possible - any feedback @Tado ? Is this documented anywhere?
Do the extra rooms show in the app when set up like this?
I would recommend mentioning the fact that there is a limit of 25 smart radiator thermostats in a public space. I spent over 2000€ on Tado specifically because of the limits which were mentioned here:
Quite disappointed to learn of that now and more disappointed to learn it won’t be changed considering I still have more rooms to fit with smart radiator valves. The only reason I chose tado is because it didn’t have the restrictions on number of devices as severe as Netatmo.
Now the only solution is to sell three tados and get netatmo for the remainder of the house.
My router (and boiler) are both in the loft. Because of this there is no neat way of storing the internet bridge - me especially as it all rough sawn timber which a double-stick tape wouldn't last on.
Has anyone got any other ideas? I was thinking something like what are used for window blinds - spring-type clip screwed into the surface, the internet bridge clips in.
Have a option to select one of the required settings after setting the temperature with the slider in manual control.
Its just crazy you don't have this feature, nobody want s the same setting every time!
I would like to see on my home screen if a room/zone is manually set or set by the smart timer without having to go into that room please. I have 12 zones in my house so at a glance this would be useful to know how each zone has been set.
A simple icon showing how each room temp has been set would do the trick in each room/zone pod.

Use a few tacks to fix one side to the timber and stick the other side to the rear of the Tado Bridge. Velcro together. I use these things for all sorts of things and they're excellent. The come in different sizes and the Bridge would easily be held in place by the small size.
What about producing chrome Radiator valves for bathrooms?
Same here, useless when the Smart Radiator Thermostat is waking up the kid at 4.30 in the morning..
