Product Overview

Protect your home with this sleek and stylish black smart camera from Hive. With night vision technology it lets you see if the kids are sneaking downstairs for midnight snacks, and because it’s designed for use indoors, you can position it anywhere to catch them out. This model records in HD 720p so you’ll be able to see any important details, like facial features, if someone breaks in. And, it even has motion detection software that you can program to look out for people instead of animals, so it only records what you need it to.

Please note, to use the Hive View camera you’ll need to download the free Hive app, which is compatible with all iOS and Android devices.

Questions & Answers

Features we love

By offering a variety of stylish products, they guarantee compatibility and connectivity, and give you a single point of contact to manage all your smart tech. Hive products let you live in the future, today.

No night time surprises

You’ll still get clear recordings after-hours thanks to the night vision feature. Using infrared, it will create a detailed image of whoever has wandered into view. As a result, you won’t be straining to make out if it’s just the cat on the hunt for a midnight snack.

Get notified if it spots anything

You won’t need to constantly sit staring at the screen as your camera will alert you when it senses anyone nearby. Thanks to the built-in motion sensor, you’ll get a notification sent to your phone or smart device if anything triggers it. So you’ll have complete peace of mind knowing it’s keeping an eye out whilst you go about your day.

Cover every angle

You’ll get a clear view of everything thanks to this camera’s wide angle view. It has a 130o field of vision, as well as an 8x zoom, capturing footage for every corner of the room. Whether it’s right up close or hidden away in the background, you can rest assured the Hive View Camera will pick it up.

Attractive and discrete product that nearly does it all

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.

Give camera

What can I say. It’s marvellous the things this has picked up has been amazing would definitely recommend

Great camera

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.

Graham Coleman ( Hive Camera its amazing )

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 .

Hive Camera

Very impressed with the speed of delivery of goods and very pleased with the product. Would certainly consider ordering from AO again.

Movement pick up

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.
