The Hive app
Our award-winning app puts your home in your hand. It makes looking after your home incredibly easy, so you can spend more time doing the things you love.
Heating control and boost
Switch your heating on and off, up or down and set the perfect temperature. Feeling chillier than normal? Hit the boost button to override your schedule.
Hot Water Control and Boost
Turn your hot water on and off, and boost your hot water for up to six hours.
We'll remind you to turn your heating on before you get home when you get close, or off if you’ve left it on when you go out.
Set heating and hot water schedules to fit in with your life. You can set between one and six time slots a day.
When your heating’s off and the temperature inside your home dips below 7°C, frost protection automatically activates to protect pipes from freezing.
Pop your holiday dates in and your heating will go to sleep until you return – so you can always come back to a warm home.
Make it look like you’re in when you’re out
Out after work? Away for the holidays? Mimic mode is a reassuring way to help make it look like you’re home when you’re not. To activate, simply tap the "mimic" button on your Hive app. Then Mimic mode will turn your lights on and off around your home in a pattern designed to look like you’re there. Then when you get home tap ‘stop mimic’ to turn it off.
