How does tado° control multi-room heating systems with multiple heat sources?

Some homes have multiple heat sources, for example one central boiler, and a secondary boiler for a separate part of the house. Another common use case is that a part of the house is supplied by one boiler while some rooms a equipped with an independent underfloor heating. In these cases the central boiler is controlled with the Smart Thermostat and the other areas are controlled independently.

One Smart Thermostat controls the boiler

The boiler is controlled by the central Smart Thermostat (see article “How are radiator heating systems with one main thermostat controlled with tado°?“). The part of the house supplied from another heat source will act independently from tado° without using the smart features of tado°.

One Smart Thermostat controls the boiler and the radiators supplied from another heat source are controlled with Smart Radiator Thermostats (recommended for radiators)

The boiler is controlled by the central Smart Thermostat (see article “How are radiator heating systems with one main thermostat controlled with tado°?“). The radiators supplied with heat from the second boiler are controlled with tado° Smart Radiator Thermostats independently. This way the complete house is regulated with tado° and benefit from the smart features of tado°.

One Smart Thermostat controls the boiler and the underfloor heating supplied from another heat source is controlled with additional Smart Thermostats (recommended for UFH)

The boiler is controlled by the central Smart Thermostat (see article “How are radiator heating systems with one main thermostat controlled with tado°?“). The additional Smart Thermostats control the underfloor heating rooms independently. This way the complete house is regulated with tado° and benefit from smart features of tado°.
