Whether it’s your daily journey to work or a spontaneous weekend break with the family – the tado° application on the mobile phones of the residents detects when the last person has left the house, with no user action required. A signal is then sent to the heating system to turn down the temperature. As soon as one of the residents starts to head home, tado° reacts immediately and warms up the house to the desired temperature. It also takes sleeping times into account, reducing the temperature to a lower chosen setting.
Since no two buildings are the same, tado° learns about all the significant properties of a home in just a few days. For instance, how quickly it cools down or how the sunshine influences the interior temperature. This information is used to develop control strategies that will bring about the desired temperature in the most efficient way possible. These strategies can also make use of current weather forecasts. If the sun is going to shine the next day, tado° will automatically take this information into account and heat on a lower setting.
