At tado° we believe in the possibility of combining convenience and sustainability. Therefore, we are committed to creating cutting edge technology designed to add intelligence to the non-smart devices we use every day.
The past two years have been a great success for the Heating App in Europe. Now we want to bring it a step further and help people in warmer countries make their ACs a whole lot smarter. So for the last several months we've been dedicating our lives to the beautiful and amazingly intelligent tado° Smart AC Control.
What’s so cool?
Just like The Heating App, tado° Smart AC Control acts as a digital assistant, achieving perfect climate control while ensuring that no energy is wasted by running an AC when nobody is home. With its intelligent smartphone app, tado° detects when the last person has left the house, and automatically turns off the air conditioning. Additionally, when someone is on their way home, tado° begins to pre-cool the house.
Even inside the house, tado’s indoor positioning system based on Bluetooth Low Energy/iBeacon® technology, allows one to move without turning on and off the ACs, instead relying on tado’s room-to-room feature to know what room to cool and when.
The set-up is plug & play and the device even has an LED matrix display. Built-in capacitive touch functionality allows you to control basic settings instantaneously. With just a swipe of the finger you can increase or lower the temperature. To turn the AC off just touch the device twice. Tap it once to switch it on again.
Exclusive launch on Kickstarter
This is where you come in: As of today we are accepting pre-orders on Kickstarter, an international crowdfunding platform. We will only start production if we reach our goal of $150,000 in 30 days.
Here’s what you can do:
- Click here or on the Play-Button above
- Share the project on Facebook and Twitter (use buttons below video on Kickstarter)
- Pre-order: Pledge an amount and select your reward

Even if you don’t own an AC unit it would be fantastic if you could take a minute to share the project or even pledge with a small amount. This gadget also works really well as a present for friends with vacation homes :).
