Use your phone to control your heating across multiple rooms with this additional tado° smart thermostat. Used in conjunction with the tado° smart thermostat starter kit v3 (sold separately), you can set up multiple zones in your house for the perfect temperature in individual areas. It’s simple to change the settings using the app, or you can even sync it to a smart speaker for simple voice commands. It’s compatible with both combi boilers and boilers with a separate hot water tank, with an easy DIY installation so you can get started straight away.

Please note, to use this thermostat you’ll have to download the free tado° app, which is compatible with all iOS and Android devices.

Great price.

One thing Tado is missing is a cheap temperature sensor to add to large rooms to increase the accuracy of the temperature readings compared to the TRVs. At £59 this is a lot more palatable, but still a tad expensive for that purpose.

These contain a lot of other functionality, it seems a shame to be running them as just a temperature sensor.
I just use an additional smart TRV as the room thermostat, as the ones fitted to the rads are simply useless in terms of temp readings. Sits nicely on a shelf until they'll bother releasing a simple temp sensor.

Yeah, this is an add on, you buy the rest separately

I'm doing exactly the same. The actuator unscrewed once becouse of on/off movements but put it on a rad to set up again and took back to shelf.

Ditto, I also do this. The mental thing is they used to do a seperate temp sensor. So stupid that they got rid of it as the temp readings from the TRV when it's on the radiator are useless.

I actually find them to be pretty accurate in most of our rooms. It depends on a few factors - if the radiator is not in an enclosed area, painted white, the modern type that releases almost all heat upwards, in a room that's not too big, and a well insulated house without drafts.

If those all hold true then they're quite accurate. A couple of our rooms are on the larger side with a few radiators and so they're not nearly as accurate as the other rooms.

Would the offset help you in the larger rooms?

Unfortunately not, because the TRVs are still quite accurate at reading temperature when they're off in a large room. By setting the offset, you're basically telling Tado that it's always a bit colder than it thinks it is. This means that it would continue to heat the room a bit longer to bring it up to the right temperature, but it also means that when the radiators cool down, it will start heating when it doesn't need to.
Has anyone found a good way of hanging these which leaves them still able to be moved about ? Would generally prefer mine in the hallway on the wall but then occasionally take it into the kitchen in the colder months. Possibly best to just bite the bullet and buy a second one ?

You can actually remove the circuit board and solder in a battery pack and mount this in a box. I now have two of these on the wall that looks just like a normal thermostat. you don't get a temperature display on the wall and the app warns that you have disconnected it from the radiator, but it works fine.

here you go
