It is easy to manually adjust your heating or cooling directly on your tado° devices.

For rooms in the app with more than one tado° heating device, you can adjust the temperature of each manually, whether it is a Measuring Device or not.

When you make manual changes, tado° switches all the devices in that room to Manual Control and overrides the Smart Schedule for the period you select.

How to make manual temperature changes on your devices:

On the Smart Thermostat or on the Wireless Temperature Sensor

  1. Press the button on your Smart Thermostat or Wireless Temperature Sensor to activate the display.

  2. Use the touch arrows to change temperature.

To control hot water, when present, please do the following:

  1. Press the button to activate the display,

  2. and press it again to move to the hot-water screen.

  3. Use the touch arrows to change temperature or turn it on and off.

On the Smart Radiator Thermostat or the Smart Radiator Thermostat Basic

Turn the control knob on your Smart Radiator Thermostat device to change the temperature. If you’re using a Smart Radiator Thermostat Basic, you’ll only be able to set a minimum temperature of 19° on the device.

Note: if you can’t manually make adjustments on your tado° device, it could mean that Child Lock is activated. To adjust your heating manually, you’ll need to first deactivate Child Lock in the app.

On the Smart AC Control

  1. Tap on your Smart AC Control to activate the display.

  2. Use the touch arrows on the device to change the temperature and the modes.

  3. Press the arrows up or down until you arrive at the desired mode and temperature.

Using Smart Home integrations

You can also change a setting for tado° devices through Smart Home integrations (like HomeKit, Google Home or Amazon Alexa). All changes made via a Smart Home integration will automatically activate Manual Control on the tado° device.

Adjusting the duration of the Manual Control

To set the Manual Control duration, please do the following in the app:

  1. Go to Settings > Rooms & Devices.

  2. Select the room in which the device is located.

  3. Select Manual Control on tado° Device, then

  4. select your preferred Manual Control duration option.

To set how long you want the manual change to last, you can choose from the following options:

Until Next Automatic Change: The Manual Control settings remain active until the next time block in the Smart Schedule with a different temperature, or until tado° switches between Home or Away Mode. Note that Early Start won’t be triggered in this setting.

Timer: This lets you specify a time span for which Manual Control should stay active. When you set the timer, tado° ignores all Smart Schedule and Geofencing settings until that time frame ends.

Until Ended by User: The settings remain active until you choose to end Manual Control. You can do so on the device by activating Home Mode, or via the app by cancelling the change in the room in which the device is located. This is best if you want to keep a certain setting for a longer period.

When you set tado° to Until Ended by User, tado° ignores all Smart Schedule and Geofencing settings until you end Manual Control.
