Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only if it has to be Hive Use this if you have existing HIVE system and need a new HUB, but it is not a good idea to start a new hub Network. Since Hive devices cant be connected to other hub, and the hue habs cant be transferred to another account (this is an absurd idea to make you buy this hub even when the old one is still working) you may have to buy this one. If you are comparing this hub with other smart hubs (Zigbee gateways) then this one is inferior to most of them. Including the 10 Pound e-bay specials. As the HIVE does not follow standard Zigbee communication most smart devices/bulbs (Osram, HUE,..) will not work with i, so you are limited to HIVE devices only. The nice looking app interface, does NOT give you simple access sharing (TO let orher family members to control it) like its common for all the equivalent apps I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit, must have. Brilliant bit of kit, paired it up with the 3 plug kit from Screwfix. Installation really straight forward. 10 to15 minutes including testing functionallity. Brill for side lamp illumination when on your hols. Works anywhere you have a wi-fi signal. Can control up to 150 devices. Works with Phillips hue as well, not mentioned in the description. All in...great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hub I am a 68 year old and had no problem setting it up, had a few connection issues since but I think that was down to my internet and not the hub. Hive are very good at putting things right if you chat on their website.

No subscription ........but !

No subscription, however if you want to use the app you have to open an account, give a lot of personal details and register the hub with Hive (British Gas). Is there any other way of using the app without registering both the hub and yourself ?
Asked by: Squadron58
Hi there, unfortunately if the hub is not registered to you then you would be unable to control your heating remotely. Your email address is your username for the Hive account and we would require some of your personal information in order for your account to be activated. If you have any concerns regarding this or would like to discuss this further please get in touch with us. You can contact us on Facebook or Twitter @HiveHelper. We also have web chat through the Hive website Thanks, The Hive Team

Can I use my Google hub instead of buying a hive hub?

Asked by: Galy
Hi Galy, you need a Hive hub to control your Hive devices, except for the camera and leak sensor as they connect straight to your router instead of the Hive hub. You won't be able to use your Google Home device instead of our hub. Kind regards Paul
