Best thing to do is read this: https://www.tado.com/t/en/updated-why-we-created-new-v3plus-products/ Essentially they've changed their business model with the new v3+ products. If you buy any product with a v3+ bridge you'll get their new app, but need to pay a subscription for some of the advanced features, such as geolocation which has historically been free. V1, V2, and v3 bridge owners can either keep the old app or pay a one off fee to upgrade to the new app. They will not need to pay a subscription to keep the advanced features. This was a point of contention recently with existing customers, as Tado originally wanted to them to pay the subscription too if they chose to upgrade. Caused a lot of complaints from existing customers. In a nutshell, don't get a v3+ bridge if you want to avoid the subscription.
Does anyone know why tado restrict max. Temperature setting to 25℃. Is there a way to increase it All other smart heating systems have max. temperature setting of 28℃
I had v2 for about 6months before upgrading to v3. Honestly, haven't noticed any difference. Tado app has been free all along. I've never paid any subscription fee.
I haven’t setup my system yet, but wasn’t aware of subscription(s). A quick google suggests the subscription model is for Tado SE equipment, and consists of Geofencing, Weather Adaption, Open Window Detection and Climate Reporting. It’s not clear if this is just for SE equipment or not. Hopefully I haven’t bought any SE products when I’ve been sourcing my equipment prior to a house move.
What about v2
