Tado


The tado component platform is used as an interface to the my.tado.com website.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

  • Climate - for every tado zone.
  • Presence Detection
  • Sensor - for some additional information of the zones.

Configuration

To use your tado thermostats in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
tado:
  username: YOUR_USERNAME
  password: YOUR_PASSWORD

Configuration Variables

username

(string)(Required)Your username for my.tado.com.

password

(string)(Required)Your password for my.tado.com.

The tado thermostats are internet connected thermostats. There exists an unofficial API at my.tado.com, which is used by their website and now by this component.

It currently supports presenting the current temperature, the setting temperature and the current operation mode. Switching the mode is also supported. If no user is at home anymore, the devices are showing the away-state. Switching to away-mode is not supported.

Presence Detection

The tado device tracker is using the Tado Smart Thermostat and its support for person presence detection based on smartphone location by geofencing.

This tracker uses the Tado API to determine if a mobile device is at home. It tracks all devices in your home that Tado knows about.

To use the Tado platform in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry for Tado
device_tracker:
  - platform: tado
    username: YOUR_USERNAME
    password: YOUR_PASSWORD
    home_id: YOUR_HOME_ID

Configuration Variables

username

(string)(Required)The username for your Tado account.

password

(string)(Required)The password for your Tado account.

home_id

(integer)(Optional)The id of your home of which you want to track devices. If provided, the Tado device tracker will tack all devices known to Tado associated with this home. See below how to find it.

After configuration, your device has to be at home at least once before showing up as home or away. Polling Tado API for presence information will happen at most once every 30 seconds.

See the device tracker component page for instructions how to configure the people to be tracked. Beware that the Tado (v2) API does not provide GPS location of devices, only a bearing, therefore Home Assistant only uses home/not-home status.

Finding your home_id

Find your home_id by browsing to https://my.tado.com/api/v2/me?username=YOUR_USERNAME&password=YOUR_PASSWORD. There you’ll see something like the following:

{
  "name": "Mark",
  "email": "[email protected]",
  "username": "[email protected]",
  "homes": [
    {
      "id": 12345,
      "name": "Home Sweet Home"
    }
  ],
  "locale": "en_US",
  "mobileDevices": []
}

In this example 12345 is the home_id you’ll need to configure.
