Currently the Tado system is only designed to 'detect' and notify regarding an "Open Window Detected"......it is not designed to 'notify' the user that the reason for "Open Window Detected" has been closed/removed.
If the user takes no action once Tado has sent the "Open Window Detected" notification, then the users Tado system will simply continue to apply heat to that radiator/room and will try to achieve the temperature as set by the schedule.
I may/could be wrong about this last comment........but I believe that the "Open Window Detected" notification in the App has a timeout and disappears after a length of time.....I could be wrong tho' as I usually 'action' my OWD notifications. I will try an experiment on this later today.
Regarding 'asking' Tado to make the changes that @kozaka wants.......I really don't think there is any chance that Tado can achieve this......because......as I mentioned in my previous response to @kozaka the Tado " Open Window Detected" is not achieved by employing an actual sensor on the window.......it's a complete misrepresentation of what actually happens.
I would be happy if the apps homescreen would show the percentage of humidity, also that you could switch off heat on all thermostats by one button.
Please add temperature set-point to the graphs, in this way an offset between set-point and feedback is clearly visible.
Would be great if you could develop smart plug type sockets that can be used to modulate (ON/OFF) IR heating panels.
These can work with a tado thermo to control heating per room.
Well I have found out what it seems to be physical heat transmission from the Radiator pipes to the Tado Smart TRV. Picture below shows a test I did and what a surprise, the temperatures were off by around 1 degree even with the temperature sensors being far apart ~1 cm. This tells me for sure it is not just a problem of proximity but also of physical contact.
What I have done is to create a even increased plastic buffer and move far apart the temperature sensor away from the heat source. Virtually avoiding the metal part to heat. I did this with a slight hack of the adapters that came with the TRV (My valve normally does not need any adapter and attaches directly), I had to artificially increase the diameter of one of the adapters and add PTFE to create some padding to make sure the valve will not fall off. If only Tado provided and adapter/buffer/extension out of the box.
After I did this the temperature reading improved slightly more but not massively. This reveals more about the design issue of the Smart TRV.
My last test below reveals the following:
During heat peak (same time):
Mounted TRV: 21.4C
Unmounted TRV 1: 20.6
Unmounted TRV 2: 20.4
It is that temperature calibration is needed (cannot do it by 0.1C steps) or the physical issue is bigger than expected.
As Tado has been unable to get the battery condition indicator working effectively and the feature is pretty much useless, can't you create a notification that is sent if a certain condition is met?
For example, If heating is "Not Heating" and Temp say 2 degrees below current setting send a notification to check battery. I have lost count of the number of times I have gone into a barely used room to find it freezing because the batteries in the rad valve have died and the rad has been shut off. If the app is set to say 17 degrees and it's not calling for heat and the actual temp is say 10 degrees that should alert that there is a problem.
I agree. It is also a necessary addition for when you have an android smartphone without play services. The app won't work so, no statistics either.
An even better solution would be to also make the app independent from play services.

I also find that the smart algorithm doesn't work that well. For the smart radiators, it is way too aggressive for its use in relatively small rooms (starts 2-3 hours early, and is done heating in 20 mins). For the smart thermostat, connected to floor heating, it is nowhere near aggressive enough in warming (usually reaches the desired temperature about 2 hours late).
Creating an algorithm covering all based would be very hard, so I would suggest Tado implement a way for users to indicate their use case, so that they can pre'tweak' the algorithm. Based on my limited knowledge this could be as easy as a dropdown offering
Based on those values, tado can preset the start time, required heating power, etc of its algorithm. Which would then have a way easier job of optimizing within those parameters. I will post the suggestion separately as well.
After using both the Smart Thermostat and Smart Radiators for a while, I find that the smart algorithm doesn't work that well.

For the smart thermostat, connected to floor heating, it is nowhere near aggressive enough in warming (usually reaches the desired temperature about 2 hours late).
Creating an algorithm covering all based would be very hard, and unnecessary I believe, since users are perfectly capable of easily supplying relevant info. So I would suggest Tado implement a way for users to indicate their use case, so that they can pre'tweak' the algorithm. Based on my limited knowledge this could be as easy as a dropdown offering only very few selection possibilities:
Based on those values, tado can preset the initial start time, required heating power, etc of its algorithm. Which would then have a way easier job of optimizing within those parameters.
Another way to do this would be to allow customers to create their own profiles, by exposing certain algorithm parameters to them and allow them to set it. This would be sort of a 'pro' mode though.
Currently, the Smart Radiators can only be set in whole degrees. Please allow more granularity for better user comfort, e.g. 0,5 degrees.
You should at least upvote your own idea ;-)
Can't you do that by setting night temperatures in the smart schedule? At least that's how I do it (it's at 18 degrees for me).
Settings like these should be implement in a new web interface only, not in the app. The web interface could be used as a 'master page' that could provide security settings and other settings that need not be changed regularly or by all users (guests, children, etc). The web page could also enable a better and more sophisticated way of making schedules, the monthly rapports, installation and technical information and so on. Wouldn't be too difficult or expensive to create but would greatly enhance Tado's performance and ease of use.
First they have to fix the temperature sensors, or launch a sensor that doesnt cost 80 euros. Why do you need 0.5 degree adjustment if the sensor is off by 2-3 degrees?
But is that really the case for you then? For one of my radiators it's surely the case, but it is inside a cupboard with a slitted front so heat dissipates slowly. In the case of the others, temperature seems OK to me. In my case, the Tado radiators are all used in fairly small rooms so that might make a difference.
Thanks @ChristianG This explains why the only radiator in my house with an adaptor needs the least temperature compensation
This is ridiculous. Do we need to simply go to competition for this i wonder...
Tadoº sends a notification "Open window detected" immediately after adjusting the temperature offset of a room to a negative value (like -2 ºC). This has happened twice, so I believe it is a real bug.
The cause of this bug is presumably the open window detection algorithm not taking into account recent changes in temperature offset before deciding it has detected a sudden temperature drop.
