Domestic energy bills are today’s political hot potato, so it’s good to know that you can take control and try to shave a little off your costs.

Customer reviews

The best thing about Hive is being able to control the heating and hot water on my phone. If I come home earlier than expected or just change my plans throughout the day, Hive means I can control my heating wherever I am.

Mr A Hinton

Hive is great, simple to use and saves me money every day. I can easily control my heating whether I'm still in bed or away from home.
