What features does the Hive Active Plug have?
Control your home electrical devices from your smartphone, tablet or laptop through the Hive Active Plug. Once installed, you can manage the plug remotely from either your smartphone, tablet or laptop. With this, you can control features such as: checking the on/off status of your devices, switching them on or off remotely, and scheduling up to six on/off time slots a day.

Another feature included with the Hive Active Plug is Recipes. if you own more than one Hive Smart Home device, you can connect them to one another and make them work harder. Please note: before installing the Hive Active Plug you will need to have an existing Hive Hub pre-installed. This allows you to pair the two devices together and fully utilise the features of the Hive Active Plug.

What can you do with Recipes?
Connecting two Hive Smart Home devices means you can make them work together to perform handy functions to make your home more intelligent. For example, turn the Hive Active Plug off when a door is closed by pairing the Smart Plug with your Hive Window or Door Sensor. Tricks like this are handy if you forget to turn your hair straighteners off before you leave the house.

How do I install the Hive Active Plug?
Using the free Hive app, compatible on both iOS or Android smartphone and tablets, plus Windows laptops, you can pair your Hive Active Plug and Hive Hub together. This allows you to then remotely control the plugged in appliance via your smart device or laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I purchased one of these basically to see how good it is. It's positioned up stairs and my router is down stairs. Now to be honest I already have a wifi range extender plugged in on the landing placed roughly in between the two. My smartphone picks it up through the hive system every time. It switches on/off every time. You can turn these on/off manually by pushing the button as well. On first getting it out of the box it took me under 30 seconds to connect it to the router. And renamed it through the app again in under 30 seconds. I personally don't need a lot of these but if you do by them by the pack. It makes them even cheaper. My local maplin shop was out of stock. So ordered online and they arrived a couple of days later. If you think you can use these I would definitely recommend these.
