Questions & Answers

Features we love


Hive have branched out into every aspect of smart home technology, from thermostats to lightbulbs, in order to totally streamline your life. 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.

Automatic heating when you get home

Activate geofencing to trigger your devices automatically when you’re on the move. You can set a boundary distance from your home using the companion app on your phone or tablet, and your smart devices will turn on or off whenever you cross that boundary. So if you’re going on holiday but forget to turn everything off, you’ll be asked if you want to do just that when you leave. Or you can have your heating activate once you enter the boundary, ensuring your home is nice and toasty when you arrive.

Works with smart speakers for voice control

This product is compatible with selected smart speakers for even greater control. Once you’ve synchronised your device with your speaker, you’ll be able to turn it on and off or adjust the settings with a simple voice command. So you can get comfy, and let your virtual assistant do all the work.

Installation included

There’s no need to take a crash course in plumbing and heating, as professional installation is included with your purchase. Inside in the box is a code you can use to book a visit from one of Hive’s fully trained British Gas engineers. They’ll get your new thermostat up and running in around an hour, and they’ll also bring the required Hive Hub with them. So you can kick back and relax whilst they get you set-up with your new tech.

hive thermostat

I love my wife but I love my hive thermostat too. It's so easy to use, it looks smart too. My wife loves pressing the boost button and getting an instant reaction. Read into that what you will. It's brilliant. The engineer took only half-hour to fit the thermostat he said it was of the easiest instructions he'd carried out.

Save money and stay warm, is that possible?

I like to save money, I also like to keep my house warm when I need and cool when I don't. Normal thermostats just don't cut it anymore… Just set a specific temperature and that's it, or best-case scenario you can also do a 7 day program of on and offs (usually limited to 4 programs a day, 2 on 2 off). That's where smart thermostats make a big difference. Now I can control my heating when I want, what temperature I want, but I can also start to build other things into the equation. Going on holiday, there's a setting for that. Just out for the day, enable geo location and when you're on your way home it will turn your heating on. Getting the chills while watching a film, click "boost" and hey presto your film watching has been transformed. Tie in the ability to use other Hive products to be able to do things turn heating off if a window or door is open. The thermostat and the surrounding products Hive offer combine to make life easier and more comfortable. I have saved money on my heating but also I feel better in my home because I am in control.

Pros: Simple, Intuitive

Smart thermostat that's made a massive difference

Our boiler is quite new, but the standard thermostat that came with it was extremely basic and wouldn't allow us to programme our heating the way we wanted to. That all changed when we had the Hive system installed. It was extremely easy to arrange the installation with British Gas, the code came in the box and you sign up online to book the install. Communication was great and we were kept informed at each stage. The engineer that fitted the system did a wonderful job of explaining the instructions and features of the entire system and got us up and running straight away. Once the thermostat/hub is in place and connected up to your Wifi, all the other Hive products are pretty much just plug and play. The app is brilliant, intuitive and really easy to use and you have loads of possibilities when it comes to programming your heating. You also have the option to boost to a chosen temp for chosen period of time if you need to. It's all there in the app. But even if you haven't got your smartphone to hand, the control itself is also really easy to use. It's very sleek looking as well, really robust and good quality and I would happily mount it on the wall. You can also control it using a voice activated assistant like Google Home or Amazon Echo. Where this has really come into its own for us is when we've been out and about over Christmas, we've been able to check the temperature of the house and get the heating turned up ready for when we get home. Being able to set it to suit our family schedule has been a real win for us. I'd highly recommend the whole system.

Pros: Easy to use, Easy to set up, Looks great, Fully programmable, Wifi enabled
