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 £150 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.
