tado for separate central heating and hot water circuits?


Moved into a property recently with a heat only boiler and cylinder (cylinder upstairs, boiler in kitchen)

I noticed the hot water switch on the downstairs control panel has been removed and realised this is because the cylinder is controlled by a chunky control panel upstairs.

There is no wired connection between the two controllers so I was wondering whether it'd be possible to have one wireless thermostat and two wireless recievers (one with + hot water control), with each reciever being wired into the systems separately (hot water signal output upstairs and heating signal output to the boiler).

Browsing the available products I didn't find a hot water only reciever (heating only recievers are available) so I'm under the impression I might get away with doing it as described.

    I’m not sure it’s possible to have two wireless receivers in the same system but also I think a bit more detail about the system is needed, are there 2 separate two port valves for the cylinder and the radiators for example.

    @Grimby In principle, your setup 'could' use a Tado wireless starter kit as the controller for the hot water, and use a Tado wired themostat for the CH side. That assumes your chunky control panel is switching a zone valve, not heating the hot water tank with an immersion heater. The user community would need more information to advise better.

    You're probably best to reach out to Tado for advice. You could use the yellow button on the bottom right corner of the Tado web pages.
