Tado, a German company specializing in home heating control solutions, has just revealed the new smart V3+ thermostat that can control home temperatures and helps to improve air quality.
The V3+ thermostat’s Air Comfort Skill processes the data of home temperature, air freshness, the number of people present and the weather outside, and offers suggestions on how to improve home environment.
Besides adjusting temperatures at home, the feature may tell homeowners to open the windows and for how long, based on the air condition. It may also suggest users to open the window in a given room.
Air flow brings freshness and clean air is important to homeowners’ health. Tado says automatic advices not only make homeowners comfortable, but also lower the chance that homeowners are exposed to mold and can help them sleep better at night.
Except for the Air Comfort Skill, the V3+ thermostat keeps features from the previous model, including geofencing, detection of open windows, scheduled adjustments and reports.
Tado also redesigned its mobile app for the new thermostat. The new app provides more customizable user experience, allowing users to activate only the features they want and enabling them to order boiler repairs, schedule annual maintenance and subscribe to other automation features.
Tado cliams its smart thermostats can lower homeowners’ heating bills by up to 31%, which is about the price of the thermostat. If the thermostat fails to live up to the promise, the company says there is a money-back guarantee in the first year. No reasons are needed for the refund.
The V3+ thermostat works with all smart assistant platforms, including Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant. The Tado V3+ is available in Europe for £199.99.
