Bridging the room thermostat

Some houses have a programmer (timer/controller) that controls the heating and hot water, and one wired room thermostat which controls the heating of the whole house. In these cases you’ll need to bridge your existing room thermostat.

In this setup, the tado° Wireless Receiver replaces the programmer and controls the heating system together with the tado° Wireless Temperature Sensor. Bridging the existing room thermostat will deactivate it and give tado° full control over the heating.

You’ll receive detailed step-by-step instructions for bridging the room thermostat’s wires during the installation process.

Alternatively, if you prefer not to change the wiring of your current room thermostat, you can turn its temperature setting to the highest available set point. This removes your old room thermostat’s functionality. However, please ensure no one is able to adjust this setting again as it will affect tado°’s ability to control your heating effectively.

Bridging the receiver

Some houses have a programmer that controls the heating and hot water, and one wireless room thermostat which controls the heating of the whole house. The room thermostat communicates with the programmer through a receiver.

In these cases, you’ll need to bridge your room thermostat’s receiver.

In this setup, the tado° Wireless Receiver replaces the programmer and controls the heating system together with the tado° Wireless Temperature Sensor. Bridging the existing room thermostat’s receiver will deactivate your existing wireless thermostat and give tado° full control over the heating.

You’ll receive detailed step-by-step instructions for bridging the wires of the thermostat’s receiver during the installation process.
