How Easy is it to install?

If you currently have a thermostat, then installation is easier as you no need to run cables to your boiler.  If this is your first thermostat then fear not.  Hive provide great support and install is not too tricky, you simply need to select the correct connection on your boiler to hook the Hive to.  Full install instruction are included for most well know boiler makes.


Alternatively, if you have the budget, you can purchase the Hive Active Smart Thermostat with Installation included. 

What Others Say..

This is an excellent piece of kit. Just a shame that the day I finally got it installed was the hottest day of the year so far and I haven't really needed this much since.

Used to replace an old broken thermostat from the eighties. All appears to be working as it should.
