Home Suggestions, Ideas and Improvements

Improve geo location (home/away)

At this moment, geo location uses mobile network to communicate to Tado.

Only people who have mobile network (4G) on their phone are set to away when leaving the house.

The phone sends the 'I am away" information to the Tado platform.

Please add this geo check in the other direction. Make the tado platform for example ping the mobile phones and combine this with the already existing functionality.

This solves the issues for people that have no mobile network in their subscription or people who turn their 4G off.

If the Tado platform cannot ping the mobile phone, it means the person's mobile phone is not connected anymore to the Wi-Fi network and the person is not at home anymore. The heating can be turned off and a lot of energy is saved.

  • @samd Which thread do you mean? Can you mention the link?

    I see a thread for manual turning on/off. What I mean is improving the automatic mode.
