Stylish, easy to use and very toasty. I love the hive system, i’m so glad i got it. I did quite a bit of research up front, also looking at nest and decided the way that tried to be clever about location etc. The hive smartphone app works really well and is really easy to use and very intuitive, though the way the web interface works for scheduling is a little confusing to start with. Even for the folks that aren’t smartphone users, the way you can send a really simple text message is very useful. Also useful if you can’t get a good data signal. I’m not mad about having a hub on all the time, but as a wired device (to access the internet, control is of course wireless) it does make it more secure than a normal wifi connection. The device itself looks great – kinda retro in its own way but again very clear about what’s going on. I’ve not tried to program using only that though, i’m sure the online web page or phone apps are simpler for that, but at least yo can if you need to.

Excellent when incorporated with alexa.

Just had this fitted by british gas, after reading various reviews about the temperature setting, i either have the updated version or mine has been updated, all works as it mentioned. You can check what the internal temperature is, and it tells you,what you have set it at. I can also switch between manual, scheduled and off. So not sure what else you need. Spent time setting up schedule, and all seems to be working fine. Only problem was getting the hive hub to sync with their servers. At the moment, i know it’s early days, but i am quietly impressed with it. Will monitor the system and if it proves reliable, will add lights and sockets. 7/3/17 been using this for a couple of weeks now, and have set the app on the phone, and it works really well. When we go out, if i forget to adjust the temperature, my phone advises me, and i can adjust the temp whilst out. The other great thing, when heading home can turn up the heating before getting in, so house is nice and warm. Great addition to my central heating, will look for some sockets to add.

Not installed yet, but getting the install booked is hassle as the instructions that are included are wrong. After 2 calls, i was instructed to visit the hive website and enter the install code on there. This worked, and an engineer is booked. It’s such a shame the supplied instructions incorrectly tell me to call a number to book the install.

Great heating management product – easy to install. Great heating product – easily installed it myself, worked out the box.

Very good thermostat, with easy to use app. Got this while it was on sale at £109 which is far better value that the normal price. Installed it myself, was a simple job as there were only 3 wires to worry about and the existing controller was also wireless. It used a different backplate though (despite what the instructions said)the standard hive services are free, so remote control of the heating via the app all works fine. Does the job well, and the thermostat when used with it’s stand looks good.

I bought this from the warehouse which made it a lot cheaper. It arrived as an open box with the installation code scratched off. This wasn’t a problem as british gas accepted the code as it hasn’t been installed elsewhere previously. . After having it for a short time i’m very pleased with it. I can see myself saving money as i don’t seem to have it on half as much as i did previously. I can recommend buying this 👍.

Great system, straightforward to fit, and works well from app and thermostat. . I have been looking at automating my heating for a couple of years now, and settled on hive as i preferred the interface to others on the market. From doing some research into fitting, it seemed straightforward to replace the honeywell st699 and room thermostat, and when it was on a deal it was too good to ignore. Fitting diy is fairly straightforward, but you will need to move connections behind your programmer, which involves 240v electricity: do not play with this unless you know what you’re doing. Even if you understand basic wiring, british heating system wirings – particularly involving 3 way valves – are interesting so do a little research before going anywhere. Saying that, you’re wiring up ch on, ch off, hw on, hw off, a live connection and a neutral connection which will all already be behind your programmer. The interface, and the app for ios. When i’m away i can check and turn off my heating, hot water, etc which is exactly what i wanted. If i’m home early i can turn on the heating remotely.

Used, like new impossible to distinguish from brand new. Thermostat arrived quickly and the installation was easy to book. All done in less than a weekquick service (as always) from amazon at a great price. Used, like new impossible to distinguish from brand newthe setup at home was easy to do; simnply key in your 6 digit hub number on the apk, then setup up 6 shedules per day. Easy to group/copy days and set sat/sun differently if required. There’s boost and holiday functions and i like the fact that the display is off when idle, just looking classy & shiny until you touch it, then there’s the lovely coloured lightsfor the money paid and ease of install & setup from start to finish i’m more than happy to recommend.

Typically their replacement service was great, and sent one in advance of me returning. Bought the hive during a bank holiday promotion so saved 20% and received it for around £200. First item that turned up was clearly used (scratches on the dial and a fingerprint under the protective film) so asked amazon to replace it. Typically their replacement service was great, and sent one in advance of me returning this device. Once it arrived i used the british gas installation voucher and booked an online install very easily. A couple weeks later an engineer turned up and installed the device, who was frankly the nicest chap you could ask for and provided a quick whole-house check as well as the install (gas-fire assessment, oven, boiler etc. Once installed he stayed around to show us the app and waited for me to connect successfully before saying farewell. Now we’ve had a few months use, it really is a solid investment for £200. I’m now running my heating and water almost to the minute i need it, rather than hourly or half-hourly on my old thermostat.

Great but installation sequence could be clearer in the installation guide. . Prior to ordering i was worried about how complex the electrics would be but it turned out to be a very simple installation. The only difficulties i had was with the hive app. Both hot water and central heating were shown as offline. Hive customer service were excellent; they replied to my email query within 24 hours and sent me detailed instructions on the sequence of the installation (hub, then receiver and finally the thermostat). All working now although i had to buy replacement batteries as those supplied gave a low power warning.

Best thing we’ve ever bought wish i had done it sooner saving a fortune by not having heating on when not in the house.

Brilliant system, already noticed my bills dropping (i’ve got a smart meter) can turn the heating on/off just when i want and turn it on from work so return to a warm home. Highly recommend you buy the package as you get free installation and don’t pay another penny. And amazon was so much cheaper than ordering through british gas.

Used to have hive version one in old house. This is a good move forward. But not any better then version 1 really apart from looks and ease of use.

Good technilogy, easy to use, simple operation great value. Love this product, works as expected, app is good, options are clear, easy enough for my children [11 and 16] to use also. Looks good without the colour surround.

Not compatible 😞😂👊. Can’t review as it’s not compatible with our system. Although i did check with hive before purchase and was told it would work fine. Bg engineer came to fit and we were told it was not compatible with our system. So i’m now stuck with a new hive thermostat as my return date to amazon has passed. Anyone wanting one cheaper than what is showing now let me know and i’ll post to you. Also got the thermostat stand which i will include.

Functional, 3 times a day, remotely proddable thermo. . Well, a year in and the app’s had one update, which gave it a different loading logo aaaaand. Such a shame this still doesn’t have any ‘learning’ or geo fencing capability; it really is just an “on at this time, off at that time” thermostat that you can boost and override remotely. Worth mentioning that you can only set 3 “on at this time, off at that time” intervals each day. The thermostat itself is nicely built and, so far, is still on its first set of batteries. Shame it doesn’t stand upright without its stand, though, as having it sat flat on its back just doesn’t show it off, hehe.
