Win a Tado Smart Thermostat starter kit

Enjoy next-gen heating worth £290 with this smart thermostat and free installation

If you’ve enjoyed our ‘Best Value Tech’ guide in Gadget issue 15, then you may want to turn up the heat and grab yourself a smart, money-saving thermostat too. One lucky reader is set to win a Tado Smart Thermostat Starter Kit, worth £199, plus free expert installation, worth £99.

Pioneered in Germany and compatible with 95 per cent of heating systems in the UK, Tado is an intelligent device which connects to the internet and allows you to control your heating system remotely. It uses an app on your mobile phone to work out how far away you are from home, determining when the last person leaves the house and when the first person returns. By taking into account the weather forecast, it will automatically adjust your heating, turning it down when nobody is around.

Tado says the thermostat can save you up to 31 per cent of your heating costs and it puts you firmly in control. There are handy reports online and within the app which detail your home’s temperature at various times of the day, and if you have more than one thermostat, you can create ‘multizones’ and set your own schedules too. What’s more, its easy to install yourself. Answer the following question to win. The competition closes on 16 December 2016.
