Description

The smart radiator thermostat from Tado doesn't work with all brands of radiator valves. Check beforehand which brand of thermostat dial you have. The radiator button from Tado is suitable for faucets from Caleffi, Comap, Danfoss, Giacomini, Herz, Olymp, Siemens, and Terrier.

Don't have a boiler, but do you have radiators? If so, the Tado Smart Radiator Knob + Starter Kit V3+ is a good option for you. The package has a smart radiator knob and the Tado bridge. Place a radiator knob on each radiator and you can control them individually with the app on your smartphone (iOS and Android). Connect the included bridge to your router. This connects your smart radiator knob to the internet which means you can control the thermostat from a distance with the app. Apart from being able to control the radiators from a distance, you also save energy and heating costs. You can never accidentally leave on your radiator anymore.

      Doesn't work with non-thermostatic valve

    It was not easy to install because I had an "old school" non-thermostatic valves, and had to replace them first which costed some money

    This is a great product, but it lacks the most basic feature for a smart home product: CHILD LOCK.

    If you have a small child or maybe a very curious pet, be aware that you will have problems with them just ramp up the temperature to 25ºC and cook everyone in the room (or dropping to 5ºC and sing "let it go"). This can pose a danger as can cause radiator burns. So keep this in mind.

    The tip for a workaround this is set the manual change of a radiator to 1 min, so any change that your kid or pet do manually rotating the thermostat will only take place for 1 min then go back to the previous setting. But still far from ideal as this feature should be something basic and simple in a smart home product. I had to tape my radiator knob to workaround this efficiently to avoid my boiler turn on and off too frequently.

    You can see users asking for this feature since 2018 on the internet and TADO seems to ignore them giving the same pre-made answers.
