Is it possible to modify the upper limit of the Heating Temperature in the Smart Thermostat (it is currently restricted to 25 degrees Centigrade)?
I would like this too. I have a couple of rooms (bathrooms) where I want to be able to set higher temperatures than 25 degrees for short periods and no I do not want to mess with the 'offset' function thank you.
I would also need this feature, to limit the range the user can or not set via the physical device. the app should allow the super user to set the range.
My kids are messing with the room control unit and setting the temperature to 25 degrees. I want to limit this ability and limit the maximum temperature to a more reasonable value.
I have a zone with a tado thermostat and want to limit the maximum to below the current maximum
+1 this is a need to have feature!
Yes, this is highly necesarry. Silly that there is a limit at all!, as this is a personal preference (In my case the valve an termostat is placed behind sound absorbing material, that also is very effective insulation. SO when the room i 17 degree, the valve thinks its 25. Not it's fault, but annoying I can just turn up the heat
If you want to set a lower limit, you can achieve this with IFTTT integration; just set up a rule that if temp is higher than 23 or whatever, set the temperature on Tado to 23 degrees.
Useful if someone in the house keeps turning it right up as they'll think it's turned up, but it isn't really.
Please also like my related idea to make the early start better. Tado wasted 1 hour of energy each day because the early start functionality heats up 1 hour too early. https://community.tado.com/en-gb/discussion/5369/improve-early-start/p1?new=1
BTW: Italy regulates how high you can turn your central heating up. It applies to everyone but is more easily enforced in shared buildings.
Private homes, offices and schools are not supposed to be heated to more than 20 degrees C – though the norms allow a margin of 2 degrees, so the very warmest you can go is 22 degrees C.
Meanwhile factories and workshops should be kept at 18 degrees C (or 20 degrees C if really necessary)
yes please, the offset workaround isn't what I paid 130€ for
+1 I support the idea to give an option to modify the limit. I know it has more legal aspect than technical, but with a precisely prepared user agreement it wouldn't be a problem.
I support the idea to cancel the UPPER limit
I have some tall radiators, and when the house is cold they are hot there's a bias of temperature of the sensor and real temperature of the room.
The problem is solved when the room is near the target temperature. If i can set the valve to all-opened position for a short period of time I can bring the house to the right temperature.
The 25 degrees limit has a few reasons. Some digital boiler interfaces (Viessmann for example) cannot deal with a request higher than 25 degrees. Another one is that not being able to set it over 25 degrees is kind of a safety feature as well. Having said that, it is not up to us to decide to what extent our customers want to heat their rooms.
I believe there are 2 reasons for this request:

Who could want their home to be heated to over 25 degrees? it means not having understood anything about the problems related to pollution and global warming! Without considering the waste of energy!
Instead, I would like to be able to set the maximum limit to a value below 25 ° C.
Use case for setting more than 25 degrees:
I believe there should be super user settings in the app to set upper and possibl lower limits on what individual rooms can heat to. The child lock is a great help but configurable limits and account priviledges would be a better solution. The offset is a bodge and should only be used for the purpose it was designed for.
On the reason why you'd want it higher than 25c. I agree in most circumstances this is not necessary but, if you have an elderly/poorly resident at home, 25c can still feel cold to them so in some circumstances it is necessary
Some of the posts on this thread have mentioned issues that really could be overcome by using a separate wireless temp sensor to get a more accurate room reading. I would urge Tado to make those devices more affordable as £90 is too high to me
