  • Hi I found the firmware update button is in the HomeKit section in Settings. Just click on each device and you can identify if it needs updating or not. Thermostats are 50.8 and Radiator valves are 54.12 latest firmwares. Just do one at a time. Not …
  • You could try one of those gadgets that help to remove lids from jars maybe? I think there is a type that is like a band that wraps around the object and is tensioned to grip the object and a handle attached to make grip easier? The battery compartm…
  • Hi There isn’t any option or device within Tado to detect if the room is occupied or not, however you might want to consider a Smart PIR that works with IFTTT and you may be able to setup an Applet that will switch the AC on or off? I don’t have an …
  • That’# very true, I forgot about that. My heating does not differentiate between the degree of request, it’s either Onor Off. I don’t know any system that does. Just on or off would be ok.
  • I haven’t noticed that with my valves but i am sure if it is the case just lower the set temperature initially whilst it adjusts to the ambient room temperature. if you think they are reading slightly higher or lower temperatures than the actual roo…
  • Hi Liam, It sounds like that is the best option. it is a bit of a strange layout having a thermostat and single circuit just for the living room. Like your zone 2 I have a similar setup for my upstairs radiators as they are all on one circuit and I …
  • Hi Paul, The Tado system can only currently control one heating and one water zone. If you attached both heating to the heating then you will have the same situation with upstairs/downstairs heating but at least hot water would not trigger them. If …
  • Only way of knowing is to try one. The main issue would be communication with the hub, if you have that then they will work. only thing then is the enclosed space and whether the heat. In the cabinet shuts the valve off early?
  • Hi Heating hot water via the App is all dependent on whether the extension kit can be connected to replace your current timer/programmer? What did Tado say to the model/version you told them? The hot water control is purely an on/off according to yo…
  • Hi Because you only have one thermostat and it sounds like all four rooms on the same heating circuit the only room you could control independently would be room 3 with a smart TRV but this would only enable it to be off when heat is demanded based …
  • Hi I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the Thermostat that had lost connection with the bridge. I reattached it by pairing it with the bridge again and control resumed. There is an option in your app to set the device “Bridge” to pairrin…
  • Hi You just set each room to “off” or to a minimum temperature manually (no need to amend your schedule that way) and if you have water heating keep this active or change to electric or solar if you have it. Hope this helps
  • Hi Liam, How did you get on with your install? Do you know if there are two different Zone valves (in addition to hot water)
  • Hi The STRV’s need to demand heat via whichever circuit is controlling the valve on the heating system. You normally set this on setup via an association with the Wall Thermostat controlling that circuit. Is the Wall thermostat hard-wired or wireles…
  • Hi, The Heating is separate to the Hot Water control and the temperature you can set only refers to your heating. With Tado the hot water control is just an ”On/Off” timer and if set correctly and if it is using the same boiler used to provide heat …
  • Hi Chloe, The Time Guard FST77 is a fused spur timeswitch, it is probably just controlling electric immersion heated hot water. I’m pretty sure Tado only works with Gas fired boilers for heating and hot water heated via a coil in the water storage c…
  • Hi I agree, the battery warning does appear far too early, it has just appeared on one of my valves and I know from previous experience it will probably last through to Autumn. On the other hand, I have had four out of five hard-wired wall Thermosta…
  • Hi You can buy them separately if you can take advantage of any bargains on eBay etc. Just confirm the bridge hasn’t been used or if it has they have contacted Tado to clear the previous registration of the bridge.
  • Hi Yes you can adjust the smart thermostat manually at the valve. Although I have never tried it without the thermostat being already Connected to the app via a bridge. In other words “setup” . i will disconnect a valve from my network and give it a…
