Product Overview

Control your devices anywhere any time, with the Hive Active Plug. It acts as a smart socket, letting you control any electrical item from your phone, laptop or tablet. Just load the app and you can turn the plug on or off, no matter where you are. So you’ll never need to worry about whether the iron’s still on! You can schedule a timer too, so when you’re sunning yourself on holiday your lamp can turn on every evening to make it look like you’re at home. And if you’ve got an Amazon Echo or Google Home smart speaker, you can control the plug using voice commands – perfect for turning the bedroom TV off when you’re falling asleep.

Please note, to use the Hive Active Plug you need a Hive Hub (sold separately). You’ll also need to download the free Hive app, which is compatible with all iOS and Android devices.

Never have to rush home again to see if you actually turned off your hair straighteners | HENRY REVIEWS

Ever forgotten to unplug your hair straighteners? Do you want to turn your Christmas lights off without having to reach behind the tree? Got a lamp behind a sofa you have to reach over and put your back out every time you want to read a book? Well Hive has got your back (pun not intended)! Control your mains powered device by the push of a button on a phone or tablet. Anywhere in the World! When I say any mains powered device I mean it…. Do you turn off your TV, set-top box, DVD etc every night? Use one of these to turn them all off and on in one go or even set it on a schedule. Like to have your kettle boiled before you get downstairs in a morning, stick one of these on it and hey presto you are that one step closer to the perfect life. The possibilities are seriously endless…. Plug in any UK mains powered device or extension cord with devices attached and control them from your phone, tablet or even apple watch! What's my view? I love these, they have got me out of a pickle many times (hair straighteners!) but also saved me money from not leaving appliances on when not in use.

Hive Active Plug

The possibilities are endless with the Hive system. There are so many configurations you can set up. The real beauty of this plug is probably in the safety aspect, which means you can be out and about, start to worry whether you've left the iron on, then just open the app to check and turn it off. It's brilliant. Great from an energy saving perspective as well. However, we use ours for something slightly different. When we're a few minutes from home, we switch the kettle on! This works fine for us, but we do need to make sure the kettle switch is left in the 'on' position but the smart plug is off. Like everything else, it's controlled within the Hive app, which is brilliantly easy to use and of course you'll need a Hive hub. Great bit of kit and will be investing in more for around the house.

Pricey good stuff

Excellent product. Robust, practical and useful. Bit on the expensive side, even when i bought mine in the sale. Will stick with the one that i have for now.

A remote control for your plugs

If your wife is anything like mine she will wait until your around 3 miles from your house before she can't remember if she turned her hair straighteners off or not. This used to be an area of frustration for me but now with the Hive active plug it's no longer a problem. I can control the plug with an app for my phone. It is essentially an on and off remote for the plugs in my home but it much more than that. Being part of this Hive smart home system it can be paired up with other devices in a IFTTT (If this then that) set up. For example if you pair it with a motion sensor then when you go past the sensor the plug can have a lamp switch on. The plug can but used with the app from your phone or it has an on/off switch built into it with the touch of a button. But it really is most powerful when used with the app. In the app you can set up schedules for when the plug switches on or off so for when you are away you can active a lamp on a timer giving the illusion of being home. It integrates seamlessly into the Hive smart home system and is easily used from the app.
