Tado


The tado device tracker is using the Tado Smart Thermostat and it’s 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 (Required): The username for your Tado account.
  • password (Required): The password for your Tado account.
  • home_id (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.

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.
