tado° – Hi Till, thanks for taking the time to meet us! Let’s get started right away: What exactly has changed since we’ve connected you to the tado° service a couple of months ago?
till – The biggest change is that I finally understand what my heating system is actually doing. Before I got tado° it was either cold or too warm in my apartment so I constantly had to adjust the temperature. At some point I gave up on my old thermostat. No chance to get this thing right. With tado° this has been simplified and I don’t have to waste energy when I don’t need it. Additionally I am able to control my heating system from anywhere. To put it in a nutshell: This is genious! For example if you want to leave the house spontaneously for a couple of hours you know that tado° will take care of all temperature adjustments. As soon as I come back it will be back to my preferred temperature. It’s actually fun to watch the temperature decrease in my dashboard overview as soon as I leave the house.
tado° – Sounds great! So you instantly understood how tado° works and how to use it?
till – Exactly.
tado° – How would you describe tado° with only three expressions?
till – quick installation, efficient to use, great to handle
tado° – How do you feel when you use tado° on your smartphone?
till – I only used tado° with my laptop once right after the installation. After that I have solely used it with my smartphone. It feels like a remote control for your heating system when you’re out on the move or simply on the couch. It gives me a feeling of control and that has a calming effect.
tado° – That’s interesting. Tell me more about this feeling and the fact that you know what’s happening at home.
till – Sure. For example I went skiing last weekend and then a friend called and said he wanted to stay in my apartment for a couple of nights. Before he arrived I could set the temperature right from the ski lift so it was warm for him right away. That just felt awesome!
tado° – Do you believe that tado° is actually saving energy for you?
till – Haha! I strongly assume that! It actually couldn’t be another way since I can see that the temperature adapts to my behaviour. At the same time the comfort level has increased. So we are eager to see the next bill!
tado° – The good news is: It actually does save a lot. Soon we will release the savings visualization. How does tado° affect your comfort level that you just mentioned?
till – Well with tado° I can bypass all that old-fashioned heating technology and control it in a way that it suits my needs. On top this doesn’t happen based on intangible parameters but instead pure temperature. This is what I understand and I don’t have to worry about anything.
tado° – Could you imagine to buy tado° when it becomes available next October as it gives you increased comfort, control and savings?
till – Absolutely. Of course it depends on the price but especially the combination of real-time visibility and increased comfort has convinced me (and my girlfriend also agrees).
tado° – Could you imagine a simpler way to save energy than using tado°?
till – Well I could drive my car less I guess but other than that not really.
tado° – But this would take away a bit of your quality of life right? With tado° this would not be the case.
till – True
tado° – Would you recommend tado° to your mother-in-law?
till – No because she doesn’t really have a computer or smartphone but my father-in-law would love it. It should actually be possible to be used by all age groups since the handling is intuitive.
tado° – Ok Till, last question: Will you name your first child “tado°”?
till – Haha, I really feel tempted but I believe I will receive some vetos then!
tado° – Thanks again for your time. We’ll be sure to get you a brand-new tado° system in October when we start selling !
