You’re Never Far From Home With Hive

2nd December 2016

Did you know that 15.6 million families are away from their loved ones over the festive period? This staggering statistic got us all thinking. What if we could use the power of smart home technology to help families feel more together at Christmas?

Light Bulb Moment

And that’s how the idea for our 2016 Christmas campaign was born! We found the lovely Moses family, based in Surrey, who couldn’t be together during the festive season. What if we could help this family feel a little more connected at a very special moment – the moment they switch the Christmas lights on?

By using our smart home products and joining forces with British Gas, Jamie was able to give his son Charlie a day to remember. All the way from Norway while touring with his band, Jamie magically switched on the amazing display of Christmas lights with a tap on the Hive App.

The Smart Home at Christmas

This magical moment required an impressive technical set-up, using over 400 Hive Active Light bulbs and multiple hubs, all connected to the Hive App. A team of Hive and British Gas product experts were there on the day to ensure that everything went smoothly and that the Moses family enjoyed this wonderful moment together.
