Is it big difference between evohome and tado? Thanks


I suppose it depends on what you want from the devices. For my combi system Tado is better simply because it supports Vaillant's eBUS. This means my boiler can now adapt how hot it gets to keep the temperature more stable (so long as Tado's calculations are good enough - which i'll need winter time to validate).

Evohome can support OpenTherm which does something similar but my Vaillant boiler doesn't support this so all Evohome could was turn heating on, or off up to 6 times per hour. Tado can change the water temperature as it goes - so in theory some energy savings, Tado can also allow me to change my hot water temperature to the taps.

I'd say Tado is a more stylish system. TRV's are much less bulky and look better. It also much quicker and works in a more logical way. Evohome annoys me how it turns the TRV's off before it turns the boiler off, silly programming.

Evohome wins if you want / need to be able to use a controller (say for example you don't have a smart phone).

But for me at least I prefer Tado in every way.

Cannot see what is missing that a new model would address. They’ve already launched an air con model so that element is covered.
Can I add more devices without a fee? Have the version 2 and got the update for free before they made people pay for it.

it would be a bit depressing to see them release the v4 after I pick up the V3, it been released for nearly 4 years now. No idea what they would be changing, you'd think something physical could be upgraded in that time.
Thanks for the post. Have ordered a quattro horizontal pack.

After having latest model Evohome and replacing it Tado due to radio interference I cannot think what else a new model could do, or change to make it significantly better. Yes, evohome would work better if the Internet was down, but in every other way I prefer Tado.

Any other improvements will be likely be possible by software upgrades due to the brains of Tado living In their servers.

Isn't the V3+ the version with obligatory monthly subscription that caused an outcry a year ago? Amazon suspended Review posting because of the bad comments but there's plenty on the web elsewhere. Worth checking carefully it's for you before you commit.

Depends what you mean by obligatory. Majority of the features work with no subscription. It needs subscription for the “AI” automated turning on of heating based on location such as when coming home from work. You can still do this manually in the app from wherever. Not sure what else is subscription, but everything I need including temperature and humidity graphing is free.
Can this be used with the Nest thermostat? or would i need a whole new kit?

Not compatible. You’d need the starter kit. Boxt have it for £125 with two TRVs.
I have had the Tado system for a couple of years now and I’m pretty impressed with it.

In my opinion the geolocation is an important part of this system, enabling the heating to be switched on & off automatically as you leave / arrive at home. This geolocation is now part of a monthly subscription at a few pounds per month.

I also have the extension kit to switch on my hot water and a few Tado TRVs.

I have the TRVs in the bedrooms only (upstairs). I like bedrooms cool for bedtime and warm for waking up.

These TRVs mean I can have the radiators off all day and only switch on first thing in the morning so the bedrooms are warm as the family wakes up. It works very well.

Note that the TRVs not only open and close the radiator valves but also call for heat. This is important to know if you have the Smart thermostat and the TRVs as they can both be competing with each other if not set up properly.
Is there any point in Tado TRVs if someone has Nest installed already? Thanks

Not for how much they cost there isn’t as on there own you’d only be able to use like a standard manual TRV so the only benefit would be it being a little more accurate compare to the standard wax based TRVs

Nest has the room sensors (if you cam find them in the UK) but not as good as this Tado full solution.

I like my Nest Thermostat but I will probably switch to something like Tado if they don’t come up with similar solutions for rad and/or room control.

Depends on how much you value being able to control each room individually. As someone said you can get extra sensors for nest, but it’s still effectively all or nothing depending on if you have one or two zone heating installed.

With Nest once a room reaches the desired temperature the heating switches off entirely.

With Tado each radiator controls it’s own temperature, closing the valve once the set point is reached. This means the heating can still run for other rooms not yet at set point.

Personally, unless you have a problem with how your house is heating or have cash to burn I wouldn’t bother upgrading.

Hope that helps
My tuppence - I went for the Drayton Wiser as we replaced our whole heating system and 10 TRV valves - much like these they look good but they're often cheaper than even this deal after codes etc which makes a big difference. Overall I've very happy with it - the valves are very simple to use and I have per room heating control with a decent phone app to back it up. Support is also very good in my experience. I've got it integrated into the rest of the SmartHome and it does everything I want. In this situation you don't even both with a thermostat - it's redundant. It is in fact sat in a drawer..
Nice! Thanks OP, just got the quattro pack of valves for my upstairs.
Anyone use these with Home Assistant? I assume you would need to get the Internet Bridge plus the TRVs. How does HA work with this internet based service/subscription? What happens when Tado goes the way of the Dodo?
Thanks OP, moving into a new house soon and found out its got a water tank. Already have the thermostats. I guess when I move it just need to get the extension kit to control the hot water?

Would this be correct?
Fantastic deal
That now completes my tado home.

Yep you have two options with HA. You can use the web integration, it then polls the tado server for the info on all your TRVs, you also push a change via the UI or an automation (e.g. set away mode, turn on the water heater etc). Or you can use a local integration with the HA homekit plugin. The normal web version works well for me, and you get the normal HA nice charts etc etc.
Although it works...Technically this offer should only be used in German, Austrian and Swiss shop. Not the UK shop.
I've ordered 3 x AC units, we'll see what happens.

I've already got a Tado room thermostat controlling the heating. I've got 10 normal rads and 4 bathrooms rads. If I were to put the normal rads on the Tado TRVs would it save me money/is it worth it?

At these prices it would be approx. £300 for 10 TRVs and I spend in the region of £800pa on gas

They do offer a money savings or your money back thing - but I'd check the terms.

I don't think a system like this (or any other similar one) will save very much on gas in general especially if you are already quite regimented. However, for the people who don't pay any attention to trying to save gas and just leave the heating on all the time and only have dumb on/off controls it might - but unlikely to recoup the cost in the mid term unless you live in a really old house.

The benefit of these systems should be sold on making your home more comfortable as you have custom zones. I suppose if you heat the whole house up and don't turn the radiators off in unused rooms then maybe a little more savings, but then again, surely the TRV's would just be switched off already.

Maybe a couple of percent saving per year. Bear in mind many boilers are oversized for their properties (like mine). So they cannot run only a couple of radiators constantly (which would be the best use of gas), this means they cycle on and off, thus reducing the cost savings that could have been achieved if you have a boiler that can modulate down really low.

Systems in Germany for example are much better designed than what what we have here.

Subscription to what? You don't need any subscription for this system to work. You do however need to setup an online account so that you can control it.
I have a Tado V2. Its a great piece of kit, except when the internet or Tado's servers are down. You cant control anything on the system when these are down.

However, the new subscription model is a big turn off for me. Geolocation was bundled in for free for V2. But if i have to pay for a key service, then there are other providers out there.

Also, it seems prices have gone up massively? I bought extension kit for £50 3 yrs ago, with installation?

Although you can't control the system by the app with no internet connection you can still turn the heating on using the TRV's and Thermostat (at least in version 3). I think this is worth pointing out as it could worry people that in deepest winter they could be left without heating - which isn't the case.
