What is Hive Active heating?
Take control of your heating anytime, anywhere. Hive makes controlling your heating easy from your mobile, tablet or laptop. The app is compatible with Android, iOS and Windows devices. The next generation Hive brings you beautiful design, intuitive control and easy to use features.

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

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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Software a let down A great concept has lots of potential but my existing Honeywell thermostat is more efficient - boiler constantly on as house gets to temperature - unlike my Honeywell that comes off and on warming the house efficiently - live the fact you can turn it off and on over Internet but the algorithms and software (called TPI) needs to be introduced to the hive quickly - returned it as I do t need my boiler to be on as much as it was with hive

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hive Active Heating - Great ! I bought the system and chose to have it installed by my friendly plumber, since I had a slight complication with the previous wiring set up but having watched him install it, I could easily have done it myself - oh well, live and learn ! The Hive system is great, and stylish, to be able to see what temp it is at home and control the heating whilst 60 miles away yesterday, was brilliant. Also got a text message on the way home to ask if I wanted to change the heating setting as the system detected I was 2 miles away from home via the smartphone app ! The scheduling is simple to use, flexible and provides lots of variants to suit week days, weekends and holidays and the 30/60 minutes boost then turn off facility, is a nice and useful option. The wireless thermostat runs on batteries which of course will need to be replaced from time to time but I think this is preferable and more flexible to the competitors that require the thermostat to be plugged into a 13 amp socket. Although my plumber hard wired the receiver next to the boiler, I set up the hub and the rest of the system and it was really easy and straightforward. I would recommend this system and compliment Maplin's on their customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works brilliantly So happy with this purchase. It has updated my boiler that only had a timer and manual switch on/off and the mobile app is brilliant. This also ensures that my home now has frost protection so will never go below a certain temperature. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems very good, looks smart. I bought this to have better control of my heating as I have irregular hours. I should now be able to warm the house for when I will be at home. I have not yet used it for real though, so don't know how much I will save.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient home control We love Hive. Being able to easily set up holiday mode for heating and lighting is brilliant. We can also tweak the heating and lighting when we're home. Great products!!
