Good price for the kit. The only thing I'd highlight is that the geofencing (system knowing when you are in/out) is something people often want in a smart heating system and you're paying £36 pa for it with Tado vs nothing with other vendors so factor that into price.

If you can find the V3 it's a one off £20 for the same functions as the subscription.

With the version 3+ you still get geofencing, the subscription is need if you want automated geofencing. Without the subscription it works the same as Hive etc. I prefer not to have the geofencing automated but I can see it would be useful for some people.
In my house I have 2 zone heating with 2 therms. Hive often do deals with multzone (2 or more therms) but I never seen a deal with these with Tado? Anyone ever seen one? I know you can get the controllers for the radiators but I need the actual thermostats. Thanks in advance

Unless I've misunderstood the distinction I can't see what the point of non-automated geofencing is. If it doesn't automatically use the information on where members of the household are to alter the heating then I would expect for most people there is almost no value.

I wouldn't agree that without subscription it is the same as Hive. Hive can, for free, work with IFTT to do automatic geofencing. Can't judge it as a system as I don't use it but that seems to work well from info I am aware of.

It doesn’t make a lot of difference to me as I have a young family and the house is occupied 90% of the time.

Tado V3+ without subscription will still send you notifications asking if you want to turn the heating off/on. You only have to tap one button.
If for example we have a babysitter round and both adults with activated tado apps leave the property we can leave the heating on when the notification pops up. There are ways around it with the subscription (leave a phone at home or manually change the settings) but I think the notification system works better for us.

If you are judging systems the same way (excluding IFTT as it isn’t part of the Hive system) it works the same as Hive.

As I said before I can see automated geofencing working well for some, maybe couples with busy social lives or houses with single occupancy or older families with no particular routines for scheduled heating but for me the notification system works perfectly.

Previously I couldn’t adjust the heating remotely and now I can and that was the main feature I wanted.

At the end of the day it depends on personal preference and the activity of your household.

If you have the subscription based or V3 Tado you also get the open window/door detection which would be a benefit for most.
You can pick this up from a number of retailers for £110, so whilst it's cheaper it's not the saving from £199 as stated
