The tado° smart heating app arrives for Windows Phone

Smart thermostats and appliances are the new rage in 2014 and now tado° ( is on board with Windows Phone.

For those who do not know tado° heat was a Kickstarter project from a few years back. The device connects to your wall mounted heater and makes it 'smart' by detecting your phone's presence and adjusting the temperature accordingly.

The same company is now doing a Kickstarter for tado° cooling, which looks to do the same for wall mounted AC units. These devices are different from something like Nest, which presumes you have a centralized HVAC system for your house or apartment, and instead have smaller, wall-mounted or individual units instead.

The tado° heating apps looks gorgeous with a minimalist UI.

You can learn more about tado° from their website (orders are Europe only). The device itself is a reasonable $149, and it seems like a decent investment if you want to make your abode 'smarter'.

Thanks, Heinz M., for the tip!
