A key element of tado° is a small box connected to your heating system. It replaces an existing thermostat on the wall or is attached directly to the heating boiler. It communicates with your smartphone using your home internet connection.
Your smartphone automatically sends information to the Box over the internet about when and how to heat your home, depending on where you are. All you need to do is install the tado App on your smartphone. What’s more, you can keep an eye on your energy usage wherever you are, and manually control it if you wish.
Depending on whether you’re at home or on the move, tado° makes sure you’re living in comfort. But tado° also ensures you’re only consuming energy that’s really required. This means, for example, that your home isn’t heated while you’re not there, but you always return to a warm home.
tado° quickly learns to respond to the particular heating properties of your home, influenced by factors such as its insulation and window surface area. This allows it to reach the desired temperature even more efficiently.
tado° checks the weather forecast online: sunny days and very cold nights affect how it heats. If the forecast promises sunshine, tado° turns down the heating in good time and lets the sun warm up your home. This saves energy and prevents the building from overheating.
