Rated 2 out of 5 by from Total rubbish I purchased 10 of these to enable me to control the temperature of each room as required, however they are so unreliable my wife keeps asking me to remove them. They regularly need recalibration and even afterwards they then manage to exceed the set temperature and refuse to shut off to prevent the temperature rising further. I even had three that wouldn’t pair so I had to add them manually which is a bit bizarre. Originally I only had the Hive thermostat which worked really well so I thought adding these valves would be a great addition but I was totally wrong. A great idea in theory but actually they’re absolute rubbish. British Gas should be ashamed to sell this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hive valve Hive system and remote power switches work great. The TRV's however have been a real pain. Bought 3, and all have caused one issue or another. Taking weeks to calibrate or just refuse to connect at times. Then randomly over heating on some days. 9 months on of messing with Hive customer service to get these working properly and only 1 of the 3 is playing ball. I'm ready to go back to non-smart TRV's.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not recommended Had mine over a year now. Valves do not work as expected. They will require calibration every few days. For that you will have to keep your heating on. So even if hive smart heating (which works pretty flawlessly) will save you some money on your bills these valves will quickly spoil it. Hive cs are not easiest to reach (covid19 affecting it big time fair enough). They were already contacted several times in last months and so far hav one valve replaced but other two still suffer from calibration issues. Generally experience is far from good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good After reading many mixed reviews I purchased one of these. Simple to install and so far performing well.

Battery life

On average, how often would the batteries require replacing, and once replaced will the unit retain its link with the hub?
Asked by: Steveathome
Hi there, When you replace the batteries the thermostat would automatically reconnect to the Hive Hub and the receiver. The battery life really depends on how often you wake up the thermostat display - if you're mainly using the app and rarely touch touch the device should last you at least 12 months. We would always recommend using good quality batteries such as Duracell or Energizer and avoid using rechargeable ones. Thanks, The Hive Team

Direct control of boiler

Can these valves individually turn the boiler on and off via the hive hub so that, for example, if just one room needs heat, the boiler will come on to heat that room even if the master room hive thermostat is off?
Asked by: BCORover
Yes they can.

Will these fit on to the Honeywell TRV valves with the adaptor ring?

Asked by: Gazzsquestion
Hi there, it depends on the valve shape whether our TRVs will be compatible. In the box with the TRV you will have the RA adaptor and M30 adaptor. The M30 adaptor is for screw thread valves where the adaptor guide in the box with the TRV sits on top of the screw thread. If you have a screw thread valve shape and the adaptor guides fits over the screw thread then you need the M28 adaptor which we can send out to you. We can also send out an adaptor for the Giacomini or Caleffi valve shapes. If your valve shape does not match any of the above then you won't be able to use our TRV. Regards, The Hive Team

Room has bad WiFi signal where this needs to go, will it still work ok

Asked by: Lross
Hi there the TRV's connect via the Hive network and not WiFi, if needed you can buy Hive extenders but these shouldn't be needed unless no Hive device is 10 meters away. ^The Hive Team
