Being able to control your heating and monitor the heat disipation across the house is amazing. I personally don't recommend many technological gadgets, finding many a fad, but Tado is frankly something to recommend and works flawlessly.
Installation was a bit of a pain, I have the old analogue combi-stat thermostat which has only an earth, live and neutral wires. But if you follow the instructions and online guide/process to the letter you will get there.
My only let down was Amazon/advertising. Amazon didn't state explicitly what version of Tado this device was. At the time many people asked the same question with differing answers from series 2 and 3.
The assumption was series 3. It would seem either Tado or Amazon sell the series 2 and 3 under the same listing which created the confusion.
Since I purchased Amazon have made things clearer but this was too late for me. I would have preferred the series 3 but having spoken to Tado there isn't much of a difference. I do feel misled by the original listing. Feels like a ducipitous way to clear old stock.
Integrates with the Amazon Echo but the benefits are questionable.
Great device but let down by confusing advertising.
First of all, I did a lot of research on smart thermostats, including the favourites (in the UK) Nest and Hive. At the time of my research the Nest did not offer control of hot water (it does now), so that was out straight away. There was not much to pick between the Hive and Tado, but what won me over was the simplicity of the installation. The Thermostat and Hot water control were designed to fit into the most common UK heating installation with minimum disruption, just fit them where your existing thermostat and controller is, no re wiring to your boiler required. The Hot Water controller (Extension Kit) even fitted onto my existing Honeywell Controller back plate.
From the ipad the installation procedure was seamless, no problems what so ever, all up and running within 30 minutes. The geo-fencing feature is a massive plus for me and with an email to Tado they even adjusted the distances to suit where my wife works (only about a mile from our house). You will soon be able to adjust your geo-fencing yourself from the App.
I have had a year to assess if Tado has saved me money on my heating bill. The short answer is yes, but I will never know how much was down to Tado and how much was down to the mild (ish) winter we had in 2015/16. I believe that Tado will be rolling out a better report on the App soon, which will give you a better idea of savings
My good work colleague has a Nest thermostat so I have been able to compare. We are both Engineers and (sadly!) it’s in our nature and our job to scrutinise the function of equipment. Even he has admitted that the Tado’s function, control and Tado App offer more than Nest. The report graph is far more detailed with promise of more to come. On the flip side, there’s not much wrong with Nest, but I’m a strong believer that it sells well because of its looks. The Tado is a bit more understated when it comes to looks, but for me it’s what’s under the hood which counts
This past few weeks I have added 2 Tado Smart radiator valve controllers to my system. This now allows me to add Zones to my system, something which is extremely useful for my disabled son’s bedroom. I now know his room will stay warm on cold nights. I have also added one of the Tado radiator valve controllers to the Lounge. This allows me to use the lounge as the primary temperature reading and call for heat. The normal thermostat is mounted in the hallway where no-one sits and I don’t really care what the temperature is in the hallway.
I did have a problem fitting the Radiator valve controllers to start with. My valves are M28x1.5 thread and the Tado controllers are M30x1.5 thread. After an email to Tado, they quickly replied and sent some different adapters which fitted perfectly. I hope they add this option when purchasing more in the future
There is a list on the Tado website of future upgrades coming to the Tado system and up over the next 12 months (you’ll find it in the FAQ section). Tado are constantly upgrading the system without extra cost (except the Apple home kit internet bridge, which will be a small additional cost, but free with new radiator valve kit).
So, in summary I’m extremely happy with choosing Tado as my Smart thermostat, it’s another decent piece of German Engineering. It hasn’t missed a beat since installation and the functionality just keeps getting better.
