Hive Smart Home
The Hive range of products offers the convenience, remote control and energy efficiency of the connected smart home. Their range of smart heating, lighting, plugs and sensors can all be controlled simply and conveniently via your smart device. Download the Hive app on your mobile, tablet or laptop, and you’re away. As you can control them from anywhere with Wi-Fi coverage, you can turn lights on and off when you’re on holiday, or turn the heating on when you’re on the way home to make sure the house is nice and toasty. Being able to control items remotely can help to make them more energy efficient too. All products pair up with the Hive Hub for connection to your home network, so devices can integrate to set the perfect smart home conditions.
Using the free Hive App (available on iOS and Android), you can control your Hive products from anywhere with Wi-Fi through your smart device. Switch lighting or heating on or off, adjust settings, or set schedules for different times of day. Check if plugs are off when you’ve already left the house, and check if doors and windows are shut with their sensors. And with ‘recipes’ you can get your Hive devices to interact to take your connected smart home to the next level.
As well as being able control the plug from your smart device, you can set up to 6 time slots per day to schedule the switching of things like lamps on and off.
Please note: all Hive smart home products require the Hive Hub (sold separately) to connect to your home network in order to work.
