Full support and integration with the Matter standards https://buildwithmatter.com as the standards develop and get published - ideally without having to upgrade the hub, etc.
Tado° is not a member of Matter, so I wouldn't expect for an update.
tado° is thinking about it though. I cannot make any promises about any kind of implementation, but we will not stand still doing nothing.
Yes, Thread and Matter support are a must for me for any future smarthome device I would buy.
Hope so @Rob - Noted that Tado is on the official Connectivity Standards Alliance list of participants (for Matter). Scroll down and click on See All Participants at https://csa-iot.org/members/
@Klaus_Ludwig Exactly. I'm still not allowed to say much about implementation, but from what I've seen it will come.
Screenshot from that website:
I can only guess what to expect at the official launch of Matter - possibly around September this year? Will the big names hit the ground running with Matter compatible hardware/firmware immediately available? If they do, then I would suggest that the others who want to stay in the IOT marketplace will have to be seen to be doing something soon.
Will Matter roll out across different equipment/appliances over several months/years and be introduced in stages?
Well certainly important for me. Been selling any spare radiator thermostats as dont want o get caught out with redundant technology; and if matter not coming will likely change. I the end its the goal of getting individual geofencing and ability to control things with sensors I already have - eg the humidity sensor in the radiator thermostats. At moment a waste as not much you can do with it!
Spring is here so I am about to sell all of my Tado equipment (worth $600 😓) to buy a Matter-compatible brand. I will wait until end of march in the hope of an official communication from Tado, with specifics. This is so sad they are bad at this.
Good luck with the sale.
