The tado° cooling unit turns any air-conditioner smart. Based on its unique geofencing technology, the device recognises when someone approaches or leaves their home and automatically adjusts the room temperature accordingly. This not only creates a convenient user experience, but also saves energy as the device only operates on demand.
Together with the tado° team we shaped the industrial design for this new product. The end result is a clean front face with functional gridding that houses all the necessary components such as IR and motion sensors. The device was one of Germany’s first launched and successfully funded Kickstarter campaigns and received a lot of media coverage in the international tech press.
Smartness on the second sight
The back features a smart but playful management of cables, which results in a pleasant user experience and enables various mounting positions without having to deal with messy cables. The smooth back adds a personal touch to the device.
