Like any voice assistant, Google Assistant is only as powerful as what it can interact with ─ especially in the case of Google Home. While Assistant on our phones gives us what we need, namely, the power of Google’s search skills, Google Home will need to integrate with physical products in order to be truly useful.

Tado, Europe’s Nest competitor, adds multi-room temperature control and IFTTT support

Tado, Europe’s main Nest competitor in the smart thermostat field, has announced two new enhancements to its system. First, multi-room temperature control, allowing different temperatures to be set in different rooms. Second, support for IFTTT recipes to automatically trigger other actions based on Tado detecting people arriving or leaving the home.

For homes that already have different heating devices in different rooms, such as underfloor heating, adding a second thermostat is all you need for the multi-room control. Most of us, though, will need a new smart radiator valve that won’t be available until next fall.

IFTTT support – first promised back in March – has been added from today. This can do things like automatically switch on your alarm when the last person leaves your home, and turn on lights when someone returns.

If you’re considering Tado, you may want to check out my review over at 9to5Mac.
