tado° Heat Pump Connector makes the heat pump smart
The energy transition is in full swing. In order to make the switch from fossil fuels to renewable resources, the heat pump should be a guarantee of success. It enables heating through the efficient use of electricity. In combination with green electricity, households and companies can thus be heated in a completely CO²-neutral manner. The company tado° has now presented a gadget to go with the heat pump. The tado° Heat Pump Connector is basically to take over a more convenient operation of the heating.
tado° Heat Pump Connector makes heat pump smart
The tado° Heat Pump Connector can be somewhat compared to the Amazon Fire TV Stick. While the TV stick, which comes with an HDMI port, equips your TV with all sorts of smart features, the Heat Pump Connector basically does the same with your heat pump. The Heat Pump Connector uses an Internet bridge so that the heater can connect to the Internet. With the help of this bridge, you can easily connect the smart gadget to your router. The big advantage is that you can not only control your heat pump from the comfort of your smartphone. You can also make settings outside your home. Imagine, for example, that you are on vacation and simply do not depend on the work of the heat pump.

Then you can easily reduce their power via the appropriate app and save money. In addition, you keep track of consumption, which is especially interesting for people who do not have a separate heat pump meter, but only a total electricity meter. To access the most important information, such as the temperature of the rooms and the hot water, you only need to take a look at the app. For this purpose, the tado° Heat Pump Connector sits on the heat pump in such a way that it can easily retrieve the important info. But even if the heat pump has been made smart, the classic operation on the device itself should still be possible. The little gadget still has one small catch. So far, it is only compatible with the model series arotherm, arotherm Plus, flexoTherm, flexoCompact, recoCompact, versoTherm from Vaillant.
