I remember growing up, coming home to a cold house after a day out and having to wait an age for the heating to kick in or for the hot water to heat up on bath night. Zoom forward a fair few years and so much has changed, controlling your heating and hot water has never been so easy!
Hive helps you control your heating and hot water wherever you are with the help of the Hive app, text messaging or the online dashboard. It lets you come home to a warm house every time you go out and makes life easier at the touch of a button.
January is the time to make changes, to try something new and to streamline all aspects of your life. Hive makes it effortless to heat your home and control your hot water whatever your lifestyle. It is easy to keep on top of your heating needs whether you are a young family, a shift worker or someone that is away from home travelling a lot. You can set a schedule for your heating or can control it as and when you like from the comfort of your mobile phone or computer – it really couldn’t be simpler.
When you sign up for Hive you pay one set fee of £199 which includes everything you need – The Hub, Receiver and Transmitter as well as installation. The Hive system couldn’t be easier to set up and the fact it has a handy app to operate it wherever you are makes it fit easily into any lifestyle. You don’t even need to be a British Gas customer to have Hive and it works with your existing heating system.
After the initial cost of Hive there are no other costs or subscription fees and being able to monitor and operate your heating and hot water so closely could lead to a saving of up to £150 a year on your energy bill. Hive also has handy Geolocation software to let you know if you’ve gone out and your heating’s still on or if you’re heading home and the house is colder than you would normally like. Hive is the handy heating and hot water helper that everyone should have!
Hive is fun to use, nice to look at and could save you money. If you’re looking for the latest gadget that could make your home more efficient without breaking the bank then Hive could well be it.
I have also been asked by Hive to give away the set that I was sent for review.
