What should I do if someone at home (e.g. a child) has no smartphone?

Of course residents without a smartphone won't be left in the cold. You can simply set up a schedule based on the routine of the residents without a smartphone. You can find this function in the Smart Schedule. Just turn off Location-based Control for the time blocks when residents without a smartphone are at home. tado° will then work regardless of the residents' location during these time blocks. Alternatively, you can use your own smartphone to control the heating using Manual Control to make the house warm and cosy for the residents without a smartphone, before they get home. Naturally, the residents without a smartphone can also control tado° themselves directly on the Smart Thermostat itself.

If there are several residents with smartphones, the simple rule applies that it will be warm as soon as at least one smartphone is at home.
