How long does Manual Control stay active?

tado° lets you decide how long a Manual Control setting should stay active. You can choose between different durations, depending on whether you control tado° via the app or directly on the device.

You can choose whether Manual Control stays active:

Until next time block Smart_schedule_icon_2_grey.png (only available in V3+ app): This means the settings remain active until the beginning of the next time block in the Smart Schedule.

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

Until ended by user: This means the settings remain active until you end Manual Control via the app. This is best if you want to keep a certain setting for a longer period.

Until next automatic change: This option is only available if you control tado° via the V3 app or directly on the device. This means that 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 will not be triggered in this setting.

You can modify the default behavior for how long a Manual Control setting stays active in the tado° mobile or web app. This default setting applies if Manual Control is triggered by a source other than the tado° apps (e.g. changes on a device or via voice service).

To do so, go to Settings and select the respective room under the Rooms section. Choose Manual Control on tado° devices and set it to your desired option.
