Attractive and discrete product that nearly does it all

4/5
I already have a number of different items from the Hive product range, including one Hive View Camera. I liked that first one, so bought this second one. I like the quality feel and design, it's very discrete in the bronze/black model (that depends on your overall colour scheme, as, if you had an all-white kitchen, for example, then the other colour would be better. I found it simple to set up, and, once 'found' by my phone, it hasn't gone off-line. Should you need to reset your broadband router at any time, or you experience a power cut, it soon 'reappears' in the system. The video quality - live, or playback - is excellent, and you can adjust the detection modes to cover most contingencies. I don't subscribe to 30 days' video storage, but it's there if you want to pay for it. Like a few things in the Hive range, it's a learning curve with the support team, as they're not always on top of things when there's a problem. However things are improving, and there is always an offer to assist, if they see a post outlining any issues. The camera is supposed to link with other Hive products - for example, you are supposed to be able to tell it (via 'Actions') to turn a light on when it detects motion, but I still find some of this flakey in practice, and not fully reliable. It can make use of other third-party applets, like IFTTT, and I've found these to be more reliable than native Hive links. The only slight 'annoyance' is that, while like all the various Hive products, you can see and control them from your mobile, and which includes being able to 'see' your camera view live or recorded, this latter doesn't happen on your desktop or laptop. You aren't currently able to monitor their output without your phone. I use an Android phone and the camera, and indeed all the Hive products, work seamlessly with this OS. Final advice, though - check prices daily, as they vary quite considerably. Personally I don't think the camera, good as it is, merits the top price you'll see. Aim for at least a third off, then it starts to become viable.

Great camera

5/5
Very good design and build. Features are good too if let down by the app, but you can forgive that for super easy set up and a very versatile placement set up. Love this colour too as it feels more premium than the white. Very pleased.

Hi, Thanks for the chance to review the Hive camera which i purchased from AO, as i already have a Hive system fitted to my central heating i thought that it may be well worth fitting the camera as an extra level of security for our property. We already have CCTV externally covering the property but as my wife's mother is co located their with us it is reassurance for her to know that if the unthinkably happens then a notification by text or Email could save precious time !. It is a fantastic piece of equipment well made and stylish and we are more than happy with our purchase. I'm sorry but i must mention AO, well what a fantastic price and delivery service to match, Than you .

Movement pick up

4/5
Solid base mount and very stylish looking piece of kit, easy set up. Only issue I would say is it’s a bit sensitive to movement comes up with a person detected when nobody’s there.

Hive View Camera

5/5
I bought two for my daughter,she is delighted with them,she loves the unusual and attractive design which blends in nicely to her home surroundings.They are smart indoor internet connected cameras.The cube shaped camera unit attaches magnetically to the sturdy base.They can easily be swiveled or even detached and moved around the home with a 1 hour battery life,so you can see what is happening in your home while you are not there.You can easily monitor the home,doors,windows etc. giving you added peace of mind.You can switch on privacy mode to turn the camera off from the Hive app.They are easy to set up,simply download the Hive app,plug in the camera and connect the two via Bluetooth.The camera shoots in HD,1080p and has night vision capability.The field of view is 130 degrees which is wide enough to capture most movements in an average sized room.The camera has an inbuilt motion and sound detection system with adjustable sensitivity and can be set to alert you if the movement is a person rather than a pet.You can choose whether you wish to be alerted or not via push notification,email or SMS.You can open the app and watch a live stream of what is happening in your home and download recordings to your smartphone or receive a snapshot image.The camera has a 2 way audio feature which is a great way to stay in touch with home and for my daughter to say a quick Hello to the kids and to keep a beady eye on what is happening when she is not there.....Amazing !!!
