Stay wonderfully warm with these Hive features
1 . Check or set your schedules
Already set some smart schedules? Why not check to make sure they’re ready for cold winter mornings? If you haven’t yet created any, give it a go. With up to six time slots a day, they’ll have your heating working around your life so well, you’ll forget it’s there.
2 . Get a quick blast with ‘Boost’
Up earlier than usual? Back from work before your schedule fires up? Simply press Boost in the Hive app and your heating will give you a nice warm blast for as little as 30 minutes or as long as six hours.
3 . Take advantage of Geolocation
It will notify you if you’ve left the heating on when you’ve gone out or if the temperature is higher or lower than you’d like when you’re on your way home. You can then turn your heating off to save energy or adjust it so it’s just right for when you get in.
4 . “Alexa, turn my heating on”
Don’t forget, if you have Amazon Echo or Google Home, you can control your heating with your voice. Perfect for when you have your hands full.
5 . Activate Frost Protection
It’s our way of looking after your home while you’re away. For example, if the temperature drops below 7°C, your Hive Active Heating will automatically turn your boiler on to protect your pipes from freezing. This means you don’t have to keep it running all the time and waste energy heating an empty home.
