Product Description

The Hive Active Light range is just one of the many options for smart lighting on the market, but what Hive brings to the game is years of Smart Home experience and convenience. 


Hive not only make Smart lighting, they grew their teeth in the Smart Heating arena over the past few years and have developed that experience to offer us a range of Smart devices including power and security. 


That experience shows as the Hive Active Lighting range, when tested, often reflects longer durability and life time than some of its competitors. 


Available in both screw and bayonet type, the Hive Active lighting range offers remote control, timer and dimmer functions all at a touch of a smart phone screen.   You can set your perfect lighting mood without leaving the sofa. 


What we like about Hive is you can control multiple options (lighting, security, heating and power) all from within the Hive App when using other Hive products and the Hive Hub.
