Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to install, easy to use Bought this to replace a Danfoss TP9000, as our heating requirements can vary from month to month in our house; meaning we'd have to reprogram the thing every time. Straight swap with existing TP9000 wiring (L+N and numbers), excluding the wired stat from the hallway. Managed to finish installing in less than an hour with no problems. Most painful bit was getting our existing hub to connect to the receiver (probably just me being dim), but once done it's just a case of programming. Very easy to program - I would recommend using the web dashboard from a computer to program as it's a piece of cake to drag/drop/copy times/settings using that interface, compared to the app. Not quite sure why these aren't fitted as standard in new-builds (our house is <4yrs old), as they're much more flexible to program and change temperature as required. Can't possibly comment on the advertised savings yet - only had the thing 2 days! Would definitely recommend, as I'm very pleased and confident it's a worthwhile investment in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb bit of kit I bought this because I already had Hive Active Heating with a combi. I was changing over to separate heating/hot water system so needed dual channel. I gave this to the boiler engineer and he fitted it as part of the job. All went smoothly and it works a treat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to install As an electrician who often installs s plan boiler systems i am starting to fit these as standard for customers now instead of traditional programmers and stats as they are so neat and easy. Don't require me to run additional 3 core and earth cables to a room stat. It's more cost effective than buying a separate Honeywell programmer and wireless room stat and the programming is more intuitive to anyone who's ever used a touch screen mobile phone

Will the smart thermostat work via Wi-fi?

Asked by: NickPullin
Hi Nick, The Hive system works via Zigbee which runs on the 2.4GHz range but will not connect to a router, to connect to the internet you will need a Hive Hub and obviously an internet connection in the same house. We recommend a minimum of 5Mbps up and download speed, this may change the more devices you get. The Hive Team

Would this be a direct replacement for a Landis &amp; Gyr RWB2 timer system?

Asked by: Norby90th
Hello there, It sounds like you may have to get this checked by a gas safe engineer to assess if this would be a suitable replacement or not. You can purchase the devices and if they are unsuitable they can be returned for a full refund within 14 days of purchase. If you have purchased Hive products through one of our retail partners, any return is subject to their returns policy and their Terms and Conditions will apply. Thanks, The Hive Team

What do I need to buy

I have two heating zones each with thermostat not hive also separate tank for hot water what do I need to buy
Asked by: Butterfly123
Hi there, you would need dual channel receiver and thermostat for the zone that has separate hot water tank and single channel receiver and thermostat for the zone controlling just heating. For the online access you would need to purchase a Hive Hub as well. I hope this helps. Thanks, The Hive Team

Is there an option to override the heating?

I know there is a hot water boost, but can you temporarily override the heating?

Will this control the heating and hot water separately; so I can have them on separate timers as at the moment both my heating and hot water come on at the same time.

Asked by: Ry98
Hey there, the thermostat allows you to control your heating and hot water separately as log as you purchase the dual receiver (for systems with separate hot water tanks) Thanks, The Hive Team
