I'm as well tired using non-environment friendly batteries and see them all send to trash.
I'm using since 6 month plus re-chargeable batteries. Works fine but the batterie replacement info came up immediately. I just ignored it and since 6 month they're still fine.
Thought I'm waiting till one day the heat radiator doesn't work anymore :-)
But your trick is much better 😀
In general, we do not communicate release notes for firmware updates. We see firmware as a means to get a software/app experience, all features are thus communicated when there are app updates.
The firmware usually contains the required underlying technical improvements to make these software improvements possible. In addition, most firmware releases also contain general bugfixes/stability improvements based on feedback from the community and bugreports from the field.
Because we have to release the firmware weeks/months before the release of new app features (to make sure nearly all devices are actually updated), we can't go into details about what the firmware contains.
We do staggered roll outs of firmware releases, hence it is completely normal that only part of your devices have received certain updates. All other devices will usually follow in the weeks after, and there is no way to speed that process up from your side. There is also no urgency to do so, since the additional functionality will still require an app update in most cases anyway.
If you experience any bugs/issues after a firmware release, always feel free to report it to our support teams using the chat on www.tado.com . This will then be forwarded to our development teams.
@GrayDav4276 @rafm5 I merged your topics to keep the discussion central.
