Tado have now released a stand for their wireless thermostats (and wired air-con controller, but I don’t have one of those) and it looks good on a nightstand.

We chose Tado for our smart heating as it offers TRVs to control individual radiators. These work, but the temperature sensing (unsurprisingly for something immediately next to a heat-source) wasn’t the best. Adding wireless thermostats to rooms where that mattered made a big difference, but left me with the same challenge: how to place them for best accuracy if there’s not a bit of wall to stick them on in the ‘right’ location.
