In the next weeks, we will start working on improvements to the Smart Schedule.
We have some improvements in mind but we would be interested to get additional feedback from the community.
I agree that being able to copy schedules across similar zones, and days of the week, would be most useful. Seasonal schedules would also be helpful, even if set for standard 3 month blocks, e.g. summer could cover 1 June - 31 August for example.
Now that we can turn off all rooms and resume all rooms easily, it would be possible to override any seasonal schedule, but it is still useful to be able to set a different profile for different times of year, especially because of the major difference in the number of daylight hours through the year (7 - 17 in the UK).
I would like to see a 5:2 option in the Schedule Days option.
So that would be the same schedule Monday to Friday.
Then a 2nd schedule for both Saturday and Sunday.
having profiles would be amazing - it feels like an obvious requirement.
I have heating set low in rooms that I do not use, when guests stay over for the weekend I have to hack the schedule to make sure they are wam enough in the morning and and night, then change it all back when they leave and repeat for the next visitor.
Simply having a profile 1,2,3 for each room would be great. I have seen this mentioned elsewhere with regards to seasons, again this would be very helpful
With over 20 devices, I have to echo many of these comments
Ability to copy schedules from one device to another would be a big time saver
Switch profiles between rooms. When the kids come home, guests arrive or the mother-in-law come to stay, different rooms and different temperatures get called into service. These use/temperature changes are known and predictable, and it is a pain to re-program the Tado's over the house every time it happens
Defining zones in schedule - for example you can have a temperature sensor that controls a mechanical zone valve for the upper and lower part of the house, but you cannot boost heat or turn off rooms within that zone with a single boost
Defining minimum heat - when the unit disconnects from the bridge the heat is set to the last heat setting of the device. Logic says that in many cases to save energy, many rooms will be set to "off" for the majority of a 24 hour period and that the most likely "last" temperature setting for a room will be "off" that means that for the duration of the outage, the device would be off. That could mean that a room is unusable. So to bring it into service you have to bring in electric radiators etc. I would prefer to have a room too hot for a brief period than for it to be unusable or forced to bring in alternative heating.
A 2 week schedule would be nice. Or One week is profile 1, the other is profile 2
schedule to resume to auto at next time event even after a change by homekit, at present if any change is made by homekit that value is constant until manual intervention.
