What can the Hive Active Heating Multizones do?
Use your mobile or tablet to heat different areas of your home separately. The Hive Active Heating Multizone is the perfect addition to your Hive Active Heating system (not included Order Code A97UR), especially if you have more than one thermostat. You can save money by only heating the areas of your house that you need, or choose to have different areas hotter or cooler to suit your preference. Hive even supports wet underfloor heating – one of the most energy efficient ways to heat your home.

How easy is it to set up?
The Hive Active Heating Multizone is an upgrade to your existing Hive Active Heating system. You can pair it to the Hive hub you received in the starter kit to get up and running in no time. The kit comes with a thermostat to connect to your existing heater, and a receiver to let it talk to your Hive hub. You can use the Hive Active Heating system with a wide range of gas and LPG systems, and some electric boilers, and you don’t need to be a British Gas customer for them to come and install it. The Hive Active Heating Multizone is powered by four AA batteries (included).

The Hive Active Heating system must be installed by a qualified professional – installation is not included in this kit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hive city This is my 3rd Hive thermostat I have installed now, first one over a year ago. They all work easily with any web browser and my iPhone. Install was (for me) easy but if you are not skilled and competent with home electrics then go for professional install. Hive is simple and very useful to use although I haven't tried the geofencing as I can't see the point for me. This latest zone controls the underfloor heating (warm water not electric) and I am still fine tuning the temperature settings.

My current system has 3 options, upstairs heat, downstairs heat, and hot water. If I get the Hive Heating and Hot Water system, and also one of these additional thermostats, will this allow me to continue to control upstairs and downstairs independently

Please can you confirm if the receiver is as shown in the picture. This would indicate that the receiver is dual channel which would support both heating and hot water. Also, please confirm if a hub is also included (as per the picture).

Asked by: Ian22
The picture is for illustrative purposes. This is not the model that offers hot water control the link for that is below

I want to remotely control four electric underfloor heating systems and my electric hot water cylinder in my home. Any idea what I need to be able to do this? I can’t see anything that will do it.

Asked by: DavidM
Sorry we have nothing suitable for this task, this may require a custom installation by a company that specialises in bespoke heating installation solutions.

Can I interface to the Hive (either the Multizone or the full Hive Active Heating) from a Samsung SmartThings hub, or must I buy the Hive hub and then have two hubs in my setup?

This requires the Hive hub to operate.
