Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hive Bought to replace an aging Honeywell programmer & thermostat on an open vented cylinder system. Easy to fit and set-up, did it myself with basic electrical knowledge. working well so far and intend to expand with Hive TRV's in the near future

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple fit - Great Product Fitted in place of my 8 year old danfoss learning stat and 7 day timer Vast improvement Large energy savings, holds steady temperature and features are great with plenty of options to reduce energy and potentially pay for itself in less than 12-18m Really easy fit and wiring Completed in 1hr all up and running So far so good

Rated 2 out of 5 by from On a good day it works I’ve had the previous gen for about 4-5 years now and wouldn’t recommend it. Yes it’s nice to be able to activate your hearing remotely but there are quite a few issues I’ve seen since original purchase: 1. No hard wire option. In this day and age to power everything with batteries is crazy. At least have a rechargeable thermostat if nothing else but most people leave it in one place so the absence of a cable installation is frustrating. 2. The software is very buggy - to the extent that I went for over a month being unable to use any of the features because the app was broken - presumably because their developer and testing teams don’t test the various operating systems enough. I was told I could use the website version instead - which is pretty clunky compared to the app. Even now the Apple Watch software doesn’t sync properly with the lighting status meaning you often have to turn a light on and off and on and off again before the system wakes up and does what it’s supposed to. Not what you’d expect for a paid product. 3. The wireless range is appalling with their hub. The movement sensors frequently used to lose connection to the hub; it’s not so bad now but for the money charged for the add ons they could surely have afforded a better quality antennae.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Downgrade Increased the price by about £40 for this V3 version. I fit these weekly being a gas engineer, however for the cost increase you get the same product made with cheap plastic and less quality everything else the same. V2 used to have a metal solid feeling casing. Naff I'll be fitting nests from now on.

Replace old controls

I have a programmable controller that allows me to set times on and off for hot water and heating my heating when on is controlled via wall stat. Can I replace my controller and wall stat with this system and programme on and off for both as before?
Asked by: DKitch

Wireless range improvements?

I currently have 2 problems with the v2. 1) The thermostat would lose connection to the receiver, 2) it will lose connection to the hub. This happens very frequently even with the booster. Will the v3 help alleviate these problems?

Hi there, The Hive system has been out for a while now but there is always newer versions coming out and changes etc. Will depend which part you are asking about. We released a new Nano 2 Hub type and the thermostat has changed a few times and has been minor changes to the receivers aswell. Thanks, The Hive Team

Will the Hive active heating & hot water system work with a combo boiler (heating only) if the hot water circuit is not connected? The heating function would only be used with the current combo boiler.

Asked by: AndyyS
Hi there, here is a link to hopefully answer your question fully. Please visit > https://www.hivehome.com/discover-hive/smart-heating/hive-active-heating-boiler-compatibility Hope this helps, we can only really advise you what's on the website, you may wish to speak with a plumber/Gas engineer to access your specific boiler setup if the website does not fully answer your question. We do recommend you use the correct receiver tho as the wiring is specific and will avoid confusion in the future, Ideally if combi boiler then a single channel receiver would be preferred.
