“Depending on whether you’re at home or on the move, tado° makes sure you’re living in comfort or saving money. But tado° also ensures you’re only consuming the amount of energy that’s really required. This means for example that your home isn’t heated while you’re not there, but you always come back to a warm home.
tado° quickly learns to respond to the particular heating properties of your home which are influenced by factors such as its insulation and window surface areas. This allows it to reach the desired temperature even more efficiently.”
