Why shouldn’t I force close (“swiping off the screen”) the tado° app?

For our location-based control to work reliably, it is important that the app is allowed to run in the background. That’s why we recommend that you do not force the tado° app to close (“swiping off the screen”) as this will prevent the app from working properly.

Allowing the app to run in the background will not adversely affect battery life. The tado° app will stay inactive for as long as possible, even when you move a lot.
