The Smart AC Control replaces your AC remote and lets you control your home's climate from anywhere via the tado° app.
There are two ways in which the Smart AC Control can operate to control your AC:
In Standard Mode, the Smart AC Control sends the desired target temperature and settings to your AC. Your AC directly controls and maintains the room temperature based on the temperature it measures and the target temperature set on tado°. This is the tado°-recommended control mode.
In Thermostat Mode, the Smart AC Control directly controls your AC. It acts as a room thermostat and measures the current room temperature. It also switches your AC on and off to maintain the temperature you've set on tado°.
In this control mode, you can define a temperature range within which tado° should maintain the room temperature. This is called the Acceptance Range. tado° turns your AC on and off based on the target temperature you’ve set and the acceptance range.
The Thermostat Mode is a limited control mode. In this mode, you may not be able to use some of the settings of your AC like Dry mode, Fan mode, fan speed, etc.
Please note: Once tado° is set up to control your AC, changes you make using your AC remote will not be reflected in the tado° app.
