How does tado° control radiator heating systems with a central thermostat?

In systems with a central room thermostat, the thermostat controls the boiler based on the temperature measured. In these systems, the Smart Thermostat replaces the central thermostat and directly controls the boiler.

If the existing central thermostat is a wireless thermostat, an Extension Kit can be installed to use the Smart Thermostat wirelessly.

Additionally, existing thermostatic radiator thermostats can be replaced by Smart Radiator Thermostats to control rooms individually.

One wired Smart Thermostat controls the boiler

The complete house is heated based on the reference temperature measured by the Smart Thermostat.

The temperature in individual rooms is controlled by changing the settings on the radiator thermostats.

One wireless Smart Thermostat controls the boiler with an Extension Kit

The Extension Kit is wired to the boiler and acts as a receiver for the wireless Smart Thermostat.

The complete house is heated based on the reference temperature measured by the Smart Thermostat. The temperature in individual rooms is controlled by changing the settings on the radiator thermostats.

One Smart Thermostat controls the boiler and Smart Radiator Thermostats are installed in all commonly used rooms (recommended)

All rooms are controlled individually. If there is a call for heat in any room tado° will turn on the boiler. The Smart Thermostat measures the reference temperature only for the room in which it is located.

Note: Any rooms without Smart Radiator Thermostats will receive heat when the boiler is turned on and the thermostatic radiator thermostats should be adapted accordingly. It is recommended to set them to frost protection and only turn them up when the room is used.

One Smart Thermostat controls the boiler and Smart Radiator Thermostats are installed in some rooms, but not in the room with the Smart Thermostat (not recommended)

Rooms with Smart Radiator Thermostats will turn on the boiler if there is a call for heat in any room.

The room with the Smart Thermostat will receive heat when any of the rooms with tado° installed is calling for heat. In this setup the room in which the Smart Thermostat is installed can get warmer than the temperature set on the Smart Thermostat itself.
