Product Description

Not only just heating, Hive are now in the Smart Home security, power and lighting game.  With that comes the responsibility to design a sturdy hub which can control multiple devices with enough capacity to cope.


This was one area that Hive struggled with in the early days, with many of our visitors asking advice on how they can expand the range of their hubs, however, we are pleased to report with this new Hive Hub, those early issues have gone away. 


Controlling Heating, Lighting, Power and Cameras from this single device, Hive have certainly stepped up their game.  The Hive Hub is a little on the ugly side (don’t tell it we said that) but that doesn’t really matter as 9 times out of 10 the hub will be installed out of the way in a cupboard next to your home broadband router. 


Once connected to your router, and once you have your Hive Smart devices plugged in, the Hive App (available on all smart devices) will search for and synchronise the devices into the app meaning setup is a breeze.  You will soon be controlling your heating, lighting and power, all while watching your camera stream directly on your mobile phone.

What Others Say..

Love being in the 21st century. Getting things connected up with the help of the Hive Hub lets me turn on heating by voice command using Alexa. Or Google Home if that’s what you fancy. Easy as pie to set up.
