Wherever you are, Hive Active Heating lets you control your home’s heating from your iPhone, iPad or MacBook. Just use the app (available for free download from the App Store), the online dashboard, or send your command by text. Plus, the purchase of this product includes free installation from a qualified Gas engineer.
Hive’s free Geolocation feature alerts you if you’ve left home and the heating is still on or if you’re returning home and the heating is set below the temperature you’d like.
Hive automatically switches on if the temperature inside your home drops below 7°C to help protect your pipes from freezing.
Log on to the Hive website and see the temperature inside your home for the last day, week, month or year. You can then identify when your heating may have been left on when it didn’t need to be.
Receive an email alert when your home reaches a certain temperature.
For those times when you don’t want to use the app, just send your command in a text message to Hive. Add up to five additional users and they can control your heating and hot water using text control too.
Hive is installed by a Scottish Gas engineer, however you don’t need to be a Scottish Gas customer to purchase this product.
**To install Hive Active Heating, you need a working central heating system. Hive can be installed on gas or LPG systems (and certain electric boilers). You also need an existing broadband connection with a spare Ethernet port connection. Currently, Hive can’t be installed on multi-zonal systems – for example, if you have one thermostat that controls the upstairs and one thermostat that controls downstairs.
