Please use 0.5 degrees granularity in the wireless temperature sensor

Options

Current granularity in the temperature sensor is 0.1 degrees in the app and only 1 degree in the device. That makes it annoyinhg, because the most standard granularity in all themorstats in 0.5

    @cbatis I was informed that when it comes to relay connection, the heating will actually trigger only when the temperature difference is at least 0.5*C

    This feature therefore is useless to me and creates only hassle and confusion when the app shows 'heating to xxx' but it actually does not heat since the difference is too small...

    @rafm5 So i am actually talking for the purelly wireless temperature sensor which connects to the radiator valves directly.

    The problem you are experiencing is indeed annoying, but I do not see how the feature i am suggesting will create extra hassle to you, except from the fact that you will have to click 2 times to jump one degree.

    Currently if you want to have 20.5, you can do it only from app.

    @cbatis I actually agree for the change!

    My comment is about Tado° ecosystem allowing you to go by 0.1° C, but because heating will actually trigger only when the temperature difference is at least 0.5° I see no point of it.

    Sorry, I was not clear enough.

    I noticed in my app this morning, that I can now only change my smart thermostat in 0.5 degree increments, and not 0.1 as previously.

    So looks like they've snuck this out in an update, at least for the app.

    @GrayDav4276 Yep - just noticed mine - Android.

    @GrayDav4276 Yep I am Beta tester - does that make a difference?

    @GrayDav4276 I should point out I am not a beta tester, and I have the 0.5 degree update.

    I wonder if you both can confirm also that:

    1. Where a TRV is controlled by a wireless wall stat, the set to is available in 0.5 increments but the actual is in 0.1
    2. Where a TRV is controlled by the wired boiler controlling wall stat, the set to is in degrees yet the actual is in 0.1
    3. Stand alone TRVs are degrees for both types

    Why???

    @GrayDav4276 I am certainly leaning towards your comments in para 3 above and agree entirely with your 4th para. Did they think we would not notice!!

    Technical team had confirmed to me  that the heating will actually trigger only when the temperature difference is at least 0.5°C  …and that’s fine as firing a boiler for every 0.1°C change is not best option.

    If this is compromise between system performance vs boiler life, Tado° should at least work on a software unification for each device and operating system.

    iOS app – 0.1°C accuracy (display & change | app ver. 6.6.3)

    Wired thermostat – 1°C accuracy (change) and 0.1°C (display)

    WebApp - 0.1°C accuracy (display & change)

    Siri – 1°C (voice commands | iOS 14.7)

    Home app - 0.5°C accuracy (display & change | iOS 14.7)

    Humbled waiting for Tado to happen to give answer on this.

     I also hope tado at least work on software unification about App and device.

    IMHO setting 19.5° on the app and seeing 20° on the thermostat is just misleading!

    The existing screen is not large enough to display decimal data (without chinning the existing UI) hence the data is rounded up.

    Agree, this is annoying :-(

    @rafm5 the display does have ability to display decimals, when you press the button it show you current Temp with decimal, so why does it not allow adjust Target Temp with decimal??


    Tedo˚ could drop the finger up, and use a small up arrow above the decimal, as we know it is degree so we don't need to see the degree symbol

    @andyblac You are correct, I guess they don't want to give up the 'finger up' animation?

    The LED matrix has 10 x 19 mm LEDs and has a size of 32 x 20 mm.

    I made a little animation to make it easier to understand...

    @GrayDav4276 do you use Digital Link ?, I found the opposite, my boiler seems to work best with 80˚c Max Flow, If I set it to 55˚c, the boiler is more efficient, but is on way longer in the mornings when bumping to target temp, and thus using more gas (5kWh more). Allowing my boiler to modulate what it thinks is best from max of 80˚c all way down to 25˚c, in the mornings it goes to 75˚c but only for 10mins, then modulates down every few mins till it settles at 32˚c, where it stays for the rest of the day. When I set Max Flow to 55˚c it has to stay on 55˚c for an hour, then starts to modulate. I guess every House / Boiler is different, and people should 'test' what Max Flow is best for their house.

    Sorry for going off topic.
