Thats what you can't do as far as I know. Let me know if I'm wrong. Think can may be should be can't? I kept my thermostats in (vain) hope that individual geofencing might happen. TBH without this feature, economics dont really stack up.
Best you an do is good old fashioned schedule if many people have a regular schedule any more!
Very frustrating as tado was one of the firts with geofencing, yet hasn't progressed the idea...
You cannot tell tado° to do this directly.......but you can use Alexa etc
let’s keep it going. I’m sure many people buy rad thermostats and disappointed with lack of geofencing!
In the german language forum we are requesting this feature for 6 years now, tado doesn't pay much attention on this essential function - in times of horrific energyprices this should be the first task to fulfill!
It's really annoying that after 6 years they still don't implement such thing! So many other uninteresting features, but not such a simple and helpful thing.
Especially in such difficult times!
My Gas Company just canceled my Contract and new i have to get a new One with a different company and instead of €600 I have to pay €2000 per year!!!
So this tool would really help to save a lot of money!
Just to keep this tread on track I guess you are talking about radiator thermostat geofencing?
Yes, that is the feature that we need. Though the user geofencing would be associated with the 'room' rather than a specific TRV. Some rooms may have more than one TRV, or multiple measuring devices (such as Wireless Thermostats). Tado already has the concept of a 'room', which is well defined and used for many things so this doesn't change the basic premise of the feature but means it is more generally useful.
Lets hope after 6 years and endless comments this feature - which has good potential to save energy - is finally implemented.
Might be worth contacting tado via twitter too..😀
I really don't get it as if I were a smart tech company and I could improve my product and sales by simply enhacing the software I would jump on it and own the market. There are lots of things you can do like leanring user patterns, linking in with Ring Alarm to turn off heating zones when you go to bed, or track the PIR sensors to work out room usage paterns. I could sit here all day coming up with clever ideas but it feels like the improvements are slow at best.
My children are irregularly present due to school, sports, work, friends, et cetera. They both have a mobile phone that they always have with them, so based on the app it is known whether they are present or not. I would find it a huge addition if the geofencing can be applied to room-person, so that the heating in their respective room can be turned down if they are not present. In addition, it would be nice if it already goes to the normal setting for the specific room when the system detects that they are on their way home (although that will be difficult in a city).
But would be so much better and cleaner if was part of the tado setup. I can only think there is a pressing reason to not do this - but tado remarkably quiet on this front.
The German forum is full of comments around this topic as well... A LOT of users are looking for this feature...
tepebox - do you have a link or subject heading for the German forum?
I can understand the complexities. Only when you actually set up the whole tado system, do you start to understand that there is a lot going on it seems ...
