A couple of weeks ago we told you about our philosophy that the time of the good old thermostat has come to an end and that we are building a fundamentally new kind of service to fit the needs of the 21st century.

Now that we published a teaser containing a glimpse of how we are creating technology in our lab we think it’s time to take a closer look at what’s inside the suitcase. Unfortunately we can’t show you pictures of our devices just yet or give you a detailed description of the features our service has. But what we can tell is the following: it’s enabled by pretty damn cool tech!

The tado° hardware has been under continuous development for over a year now. The latest generation incorporates dozens of improvements learned by prototyping with real hardware – dogfooded to ourselves. Our software grew to tens of thousands source lines of code crammed with state of the art algorithms to radically optimize energy consumption of our customers.

The best thing about the tado° technology is that is has been developed always keeping in mind that you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to use it! Because – let’s be honest – the most advanced technology is a pain if it doesn’t excel UX-wise.
