IoT: Tado° home automation app
Purpose: Location based smart home heating and air conditioning solution. This app connects to your Tado° home thermostat and prepares the home for your arrival.
- Installation is easy. Save yourself the $50 euro install cost and do it yourself.
- Customer service is responsive with upgrades that are thoughtful and thorough.
- Runs on less than 5% of battery charge.
- Saves $.
- Permissions currently allow all or nothing access. My kids should have on/off option only, not the ability to blast the heat to 33 degrees!
- When I intentionally turn off wifi, the constant alerts that it’s needed to run can be annoying. I get it.
- Needs a more accurate ‘home mode’. Occasionally the app fails to detect that no one is home which results in $ lost.
This basic solution works but the app needs more features. With Tado°’s long list of upgrades in the pipeline and an already great customer service record, we’re optimistic.
