Your tado° account comes with a default Smart Schedule already set up. To personalize it, go to the room screen of your choice in the tado° app and tap the Smart Schedule button.
Each room’s Smart Schedule has 2 different sections: Home and Away.
In the Home tab, you can divide your day into multiple time blocks and assign a setting (e.g. a temperature) for each time block.
In the Away tab, you can determine what tado° should do if nobody is at home.
For your rooms with heating, you can set a Minimum Away Temperature, which is the lowest temperature to be maintained when nobody’s home.
If the Auto-Assist Skill is activated, you can also find the Preheat Before Arrival setting in the Away tab. If this setting is active, tado° automatically determines the ideal Away Temperature when you’re not at home. Based on your choice between the three available levels of preheating (Eco, Balance or Comfort), tado° also determines the best time to begin heating your home to reach the temperature set in the Smart Schedule just in time for your arrival.
If Preheat Before Arrival is disabled, tado° maintains the Minimum Away Temperature when you’re not at home.
For Hot Water or Smart AC Control, you can specify an Away setting that will be applied whenever nobody is at home.
Configure your Smart Schedule in four steps:
- In the Home tab, select the days for which you want to set a specific schedule. You have three options:
- Set the same schedule for all weekdays: Mon-Sun
- Set a different schedule for the weekend days: Mon-Fri, Sat, Sun
- Set a different schedule for every day of the week: Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun
Add and modify time blocks in the Home tab. You can edit your settings at any time by clicking/tapping on a particular time block.
In Advanced Settings of the time blocks, choose whether Geofencing should be activated (default setting) or not for that specific time block. If turned on, the settings of that time block will become active only when somebody is at home. If turned off, the settings of that time block will be active no matter where the residents may be.
Specify the desired Away setting in the Away tab.
