Tado Launches New HomeKit-compatible Smart AC Control

Tado°, the leader in intelligent home climate management, today brings to market its new Smart AC Control V3+. With HomeKit-compatible hardware and a new app, the Smart AC Control connects air conditioners and heat pumps to the home’s Wi-Fi replacing the infrared remote control. The product is available starting today at £89.99 from leading retailers across Europe as well as from

New app for a healthier home
With an emphasis on promoting a healthy home environment, the new app has a fresh design and introduces several features, such as the Air Comfort Skill which measures air freshness inside and outside of your home. It also provides meaningful tips and advice on how to improve your indoor air as healthy air can enhance sleep and productivity while minimising the risk of catching a cold.

The Air Comfort Skill complements a range of features like Geofencing, Open Window Detection, Weather Adaptation, and insightful energy reports that save energy and improve comfort. Users can also make use of the Smart Schedule and settings to minimise AC noise levels and disruption by managing the fan speed and the time when it’s running.

Those who wish to have full automation to manage their climate at home can subscribe to the Auto-Assist Skill for £2.99 per month or £24.99 a year. The Skill automatically adjusts your AC or heat pump when triggered by Geofencing or Open Window Detection, rather than sending you a notification.

Apple HomeKit & smart home integrations
Apple HomeKit users can now integrate the Smart AC Control V3+ into their setup. This means you can ask Siri to change temperatures and add air conditioning into your HomeKit Scenes and Automations. As with the company’s V3+ Smart Thermostats, the new Smart AC Control also works seamlessly with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

Plug & play
