Throughout the app temperatures are reported and set in units of whole degrees. It would be beneficial to increase the granularity of both reporting and setting to half degree increments.
I modified the title as this currently only affects rooms that have a Smart Radiator Thermostat as a leader.
I totally agree with this, I have also been asking for this for a long time, both for the radiator thermostats, and the room thermostat on the actual thermostats themselves, as opposed to via the App. Seems a bit odd you can't set 0.1C increments on both pieces of equipment and being a dot matrix display should be easy enough to reprogram to show the 0.1C increments.
The difference between 20C and 21C is massive, it can't be right to leave it at that for the radiator stats.
Please implement this.
I need this now.
The history report does show values with decimals but why cannot we set the offset, target and display the current temperature in the app with decimals too? It;s simply silly.
Probably because relying on the TRV's built-in sensor isn't a great idea as it gives fairly inaccurate readings (it is, after all, connected indirectly to the heat source). I understand the point of it maybe allowing you finer control of the heat, but I wouldn't be trusting the TRVs to give you accurate room temperature readouts.
Also, it would make it harder for Tado to flog their smart thermostats! ;)
There are several threads around with the same subject. It seems there is a need, nut the votes are in to many different threads. A fresh one with large support should be started. This really needs to ne implemented!
Because the Smart Radiator Thermostats measure so close to a radiator, adding further granularity makes no sense. It would not accurately represent the rooms temperature anymore than the current granularity.
If you want more granularity, you could opt to buy the Smart Temperature Sensor and this will increase granularity because it also make sense because you place this device in a better spot.
At the moment, this increased granularity for just Smart Radiator Thermostats is not high on the overall priority list and I do not see that changing any time soon.
The vast majority of manufacturers that make TRVs have implemented this 0.5C granularity. Tado is among the few that do not have this.
