Hive works no matter who supplies your energy and will work with your existing heating system. With Hive you’ll never need to heat an empty home again so you could save up to £130 a year on your heating bills.

What is in this kit?
Set up your heating and hot water with a wireless thermostat, hub and receiver. You can control your heating and hot water with the wireless thermostat. Connect your hub to your router with the Ethernet cable and control your thermostat using the Hive Smart app. The receiver allows your thermostat and hub to speak to each other

Will Hive Active Heating and Hot Water work for me?
If you are buying Hive with no installation and have a hot water tank (conventional boiler) then Hive Active Heating and Hot Water is right for you. If you do not have a hot water tank (combi boiler) take a look at Hive Active Heating.
