Well with the hot water control it’s only £40 more so not toooooo special, pretty good if you definitely don’t need the extension
Bit at £99.99 today for my MIL - if only I’d been a little bit more patient
I’m happy I have the V2 with no subscription charge. Can’t believe you have to pay monthly for the V3 and don’t get anything extra.

Really that's bad that I have a Honeywell and it works fine with no subscription.
I have a Vaillant Ecomax which is ~15 years old and has very basic features such as a timer and 2 dials for water/heating. (No external thermostat or anything).
Will this Tado starter set be compatible with my setup?

Not true, you don't have to pay monthly with the V3.

You don’t have to but you won’t get access to all the features where as with the V2 you get them all for free.

You can make your home even more comfortable by automating Geofencing and Open Window Detection with the Auto-Assist Skill.* The Auto-Assist Skill is available in the app for only £2.99 per month, and can be cancelled at anytime.

These two Skills also work without Auto-Assist. You will simply be notified via push notifications to (de)activate the heating if the Skills are triggered

The above skills are free with the Tado V2

This is true, you don’t have to pay for the subscription features with the v3, but you do with the v3+ to get the same functionality as the v1, 2 and 3.

For anyone not sure about Tado, it might be one of the lesser known systems but it genuinely is superb.

Yea, so you don't have to pay monthly. You just have to pay monthly for the "auto assist" functionality. Everything else still works on mine without paying a monthly charge.

Well you do have to pay monthly for the equivalent service as v1, 2 or 3 as I said but yes you’re right, you don’t have to.

For my money, I’d pay for the features but I know it’s not for everyone.

V1 and V2 get all these features without having to pay anything extra. With V3 you have to pay monthly to enable them.
I have V2 and Geofencing is a great free feature but if you want it on V3 you gotta pay ..

This is wrong, I have a v2 and v3 (at separate houses so not on the same system) and you definitely pay any fee for any features. You only pay for the optional features on the v3+ which is what is being sold in this thread.

What doesn’t help at all in this thread is the naming convention that Tado use, they should have used a different name entirely.

My advice to anyone is that Tado is an excellent system but anyone wanting to move to this system should get an unregistered V2 or V3 bridge or starter kit from eBay (not the V3+) and then go from there.

The subscription charge you pay is based on what bridge you’re using so if you get hold of a bridge then you could use the thermostat out of this kit with an older bridge (which is still cheaper in this deal than buying the thermostat on its own).

Here's the thing. Eofrncing only works if you have location set on your phone. Apart from Google maps why would i set that on?

Amazon have the extension kit for £40 as part of the hot water pack so starter kit plus extension for £130

Geofencing? How else would it know where you are if you don't have location set on your phone?
