Great gadget

Great for setting a mood in the living room and I've even replaced my outdoor patio lights with them for Christmas lighting

In the mood for a party, or just looking to turn off the lights when you get into bed without getting up again?

Party time? Wanting to save energy? Fancy a different colour of light in your home, or just wanting to change the mood? Changing out for a Hive Active Light could be the solution to your problem! Some like a nice bluey-white, some like a nice warm-white, some even like a red or a green in their homes. You can set the colour and the brightness of your set shade of light to whatever you would like. With infinite possibilities you can have lots of fun choosing the right colour for you. Add into the mix the ability to schedule lights to come on or off when you want and even mimic people being at home, all from a press of a button on your phone, tablet or watch. Not just that, but add additional Hive products to expand its use by turning on lights automatically when you open a door or move into a certain room. I have found so many uses for my bulbs, but the main thing is, they save money!

Let there be light

Absolutely love these Hive bulbs and can't recommend them highly enough. Will definitely be aiming to get these throughout the house eventually. Easy to set up once you've got the Hive hub, it's all controlled within the Hive app, which is super easy to use. You can switch it on and off from the app, which is great if you get up or come home in the dark. But, not only that, you can control the colour from the app as well. There are so many colour possibilities, as well as a range of whites from cool to warm. The really nice thing is that we've just got an Amazon Echo, so all we need to do is say Alexa, make the light pink and hey presto. Kids are absolutely loving it, as you can imagine. It's also programmable, so we have it set to come on for a brief period in the morning when we all get up and when it goes dark in the evening. It's energy efficient and long lasting too so well worth investment I think. I'm that impressed that I've given a few sets as gifts this Christmas!

A great smart home gadget

Hive has introduced the Active Light as part of the smart home system available with the Hive Active Heating kit. It is essentially a light bulb that you can control from the Hive app on your phone. Installing the bulb was easy, just screw it in, turn it on, launch the app, and add a new device. It literally takes seconds to do. There is also an option to rename the light bulb to make it easier to recognise. This is great as when you start replace all the bulbs in your home you'll want to control them separately. Once it's up and running and you've given it a great name you'll see several options in the app. The light has a dimmer option, which is great as at 100% its actually very bright. The intensity goes from 0 to 5% then from 10% up in increments of 10 until 100%. You will also be able to choose what kind of white light you want, the spectrum ranges from cool white to warm white and all the shade in-between. It also has the colour changing option. Like the white light options it works with a sliding scale and allows you to choose hues from red to blue to green to yellow or orange or anything in-between. and the colours are incredibly vibrant. This might seem like a gimmick but being able to have a dimmed light while I'm relaxing on an evening after work is lovely. I've also found being able to change the colour of the light is easier on the eyes at times. The Hive light also comes with scheduling so it can be programmed to turn on or off at different times of the day. I feel like this feature will be great while i'm away on holiday but day to day it is also great as an alarm clock. When my alarm goes off on a morning my bedroom light comes on and helps me wake up quicker. The Hive light can also be used with other Hive devices such as the motion sensor so when it detects movement in a room the light will come on. I've used this light a lot more than i actually thought I would and it really has fit well into my lifestyle. It is a little expensive but the box says it lasts for 25,000 hours which is 3 years if it's never switched off.
