[RELEASE] Tado (Connect)

This app seems to at least give basic functionality in the new app.

But would love for someone to take this over and continue improving it once the classic app is gone.

Hey All.

Does this smartapp work anymore on the old or the new app?

Hi guys, new user here,
just going through the setup on the github and stuck on this bit

“Go through the authentication process using Tado (Connect)”

The app and everything was published just not sure how to get to the authentication process, already have a user name/ password

Any help would be appreciate

Just want to say thank you and that the app worked like a charm with our Tado Smart AC Control V3+ :nerd_face: :ok_hand:

Thanks for the app.
Just finished the setup and it works great with Tado Smart thermostat V3+.
@m0v1em4n: see this post [RELEASE] Tado (Connect)

Does this still work? I have tried to follow instructions but they are not very helpful for a non programming mind, I have logged into GitHub pasted in the code but just get an error? Any simple step by step or youtube instructions would be helpful so I can see tado Valves in smartthings, then hopefully see them in ActionTiles?

Yes, it still works. I just set mine up about a month ago and all is well.

If you’re having trouble, make sure you are creating the correct item with the correct code from github (i.e. device handler, smartapp). Also, ensure OAUTH is enabled for the smartapp, or it won’t work.

If you’re still struggling, I suggest googling how to use the IDE to gain an understanding of how things work on the backend.

@Blair_Pollard - can you please advise what that basic functionality is?

And also any features which you see as missing in the new app?

Thanks

Help please. I have tried to follow the instructions step by step But then i enter the code in New Device handler i just get the below error?? I Wish the step by step instructions had pictures not just text 100% easier to follow, or a youtube video to follow.

Hi Stuart, thank you for the time you spend on this and creating this smart app. I have a question though, is it possible to change tado from home to away through Smartthings?

Thank you

Hi, did you ever solve this issue as my is doing exactly the same thing!

I didn’t look at it myself, it was just a suggestion from looking at the code where the cause may lie, because this is where the operating state is set. Having looked at other (unofficial) docs for how the Tado API works it would seem that ON/OFF for power should indicate it’s calling for heat, so either this code is not being executed, or the API isn’t sending the data we think it is.

Just logging the output of resp.data.setting would provide some insight.

I just had a quick look at what the API returns via the Tado webapp. It only indicates power=OFF for a heating zone when the thermostat is set to frost protection; otherwise it will be ON regardless of whether the 'stat is calling for heat.

I checked what the hot water zone does, it works the same way but that’s expected for mine as it doesn’t have a temperature setpoint since the thermostat is not visible to Tado. Once the hot water reaches the right temperature the boiler switches off, but Tado doesn’t know about it. So it will still say “ON”.

My guess is that their own app simply colours a zone green when the temperature reaches the setpoint. I’ve forked the repo and made that change:


I only did it for heating zones. AC zones seem more complicated so would probably need to invert the check depending on whether heating or cooling.

This is amazing - just what I needed to be able to connect to the Nest and rather then messing around with temperature comparisons.

Thank you so much for doing it so quickly for me :slight_smile:
All the best

Hi Andy,
Can this version of tado connect be installed on the new ST app? The install sees all my devices (I select all) then sees my users (I select all).
After entering all the temperatures and mode I get a blank screen for several seconds followed by a message ‘Something went wrong. Please try to install the SmartApp again’
I would love to get this working.

Help please. :cry:

Will this ever install via the new ST App? There is masses of code in this DH - can someone much cleverer than I take it on and make it work for the new App?
I would love to get this working, having just refurbished my house with an expensive tado system assuming I would be able to control it via WebCoRE
Please let me know if I have done something wrong, or point me in the right direction.

Now in smartthings the target temperature is shown. How can I change the deivce handler to show the current temperature?
