German smart home heating specialists tado° launched its new V3+ product generation of thermostats at IFA Berlin last week.
The new Air Comfort Skill helps you to achieve healthier indoor air, improved productivity, and a better quality of sleep for more wellbeing at home. This Skill guides you to a healthier home environment by giving insights into your home’s air climate and providing you with concrete, meaningful, and actionable advice on how to achieve more comfort, while offering tips on preventing health risks such as mold.
tado° will provide advice such as when and for how long to open the windows or how to reduce humidity. Recommendations on when to air certain rooms are based on both the air freshness inside as well as on the outside air quality in your neighbourhood, presence of people, and local weather forecasts. For example, if pollution is heightened during rush hour or pollen is particularly high in your area, tado° will guide you on how best to manage it and when to open your windows.
The Air Comfort Skill is part of a brand-new app for the V3+ product suite. It joins a variety of other core Skills which assist users in their daily life, such as Geofencing, Weather Adaptation, Open Window Detection, Smart Schedules, and Insightful Reports. The app is designed so that customers can tailor it by activating the Skills they would like to use.
tado° users who wish more assistance in managing their climate at home can use the app to purchase boiler repair services, to schedule an annual maintenance, to get a quote on a new boiler, or to subscribe to the Auto-Assist Skill which further automates your smart home for £2.99 per month or for £24.99 annually.
The tado system integrates with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and the Google Assistant.
