Sweet and Comfortable Home

IoT hits home with a new smart controller for air conditioners.


On those hot summer mornings as you head out the door to go to work, you probably think twice about leaving the air conditioning unit on. You don’t want to spend money cooling the place when you’re not home, but you also don’t want to walk into a sauna at the end of the day. Now, thanks to tado°, the smart AC control, you don’t have to think about it at all.

For use with any remote-controlled AC, tado° uses geolocation to adjust the temperature based on your proximity. Or, you can also adjust the temperature directly from the tado° smartphone app, no matter where you are.

And, if you want to heat things up at home, there’s the tado° Smart Thermostat, which automatically reduces the temperature to an optimal level as soon as the last person has exited the home. It also knows how far away you are to pre-warm the house before you return.

The best news is that tado° users are no longer throwing money out the window, reporting savings up to 40 percent on their energy bills.
