Focus on the areas that matter

Our indoor camera automatically records when it detects people, sound or motion up to 60ft away during the day. And you can choose specific areas you want to cover – like your front door, but not the entire room.

Clear as day, even at night

Hive View has built-in night vision that detects people up to 15ft away. So your home is monitored all through the night, as well as during the day.

Frequently asked questions
How secure is my data?

We have robust security measures in place to protect your personal information and stop anyone accessing your Hive View or Hive View Outdoor camera.

  • Every Hive View and Hive View Outdoor camera is secured using a unique certificate to prevent unauthorised access.

  • Your videos are uploaded securely online using the latest industry standard protocols (TLS 1.2 and higher) and encrypted using the latest standards (AES-128). The videos and the encryption keys are held in separate secure areas.

  • Videos are encrypted to the Hive app which then decrypts the video while playing. This means videos are never available to play in un-encrypted format.

  • We delete all videos that we don't need to store as well as delete all videos that are no longer available in your Hive app.

  • If you cancel your Hive online account or remove Hive View or Hive View Outdoor from it, we delete all videos that have been recorded.

  • Your Hive View or Hive View Outdoor camera is uniquely linked to your Hive online account. This means no other user can add your camera to their account. Hive View must be removed from the current account before it can be added to another one. So if your camera is stolen, it cannot be used by anyone else.

Is the camera weatherproof?

No, the Hive View camera is only suitable for indoor use.

How does the camera know when to record?

When motion, people or sounds are detected, Hive View and Hive View Outdoor record a video from 5 seconds before to 10 seconds after the activity event ends.

  • If another event is detected during recording, the recording extends.

  • The recording finishes after 10 seconds of no activity.

  • After 10 minutes the recording will finish and a new recording will begin.

  • If the camera loses network connection, the camera will continue recording video until that event ends, up to a maximum of 10 minutes. It will then not be able to record any further events until the camera is back online.

Hive View and Hive View Outdoor will only record when:

  • Switched on at the unit and connected to broadband

  • Camera monitoring is on

  • Motion, person or sound detection is turned on

Recordings can be accessed at any time, whether the camera is online or offline.

This excludes recordings that started but didn't finish before the camera went offline.

It also excludes recordings outside your 30-day camera history (if you have Hive Video Playback membership) or 24 hours earlier (if you have standard 24-hour playback).

How much storage do I get with the camera?

The camera comes with standard 24-hour camera storage.

Or you can upgrade to 30-days of video storage for £3.99 per month.

How loud is the built-in speaker?

The built-in speaker is 0.5W / 8 Ohm.

How far can the camera detect motion during the day and night?

Up to approximately 60ft (20m) in daylight and up to 15ft (5m) at night.

Please note: this is dependent on how the camera is positioned.

Does the camera have any lights?

Yes, the camera has several lights built in:

  • IR LEDS for night vision.

  • Ring lights for status (off in normal operation)

  • Indicator for operation (green normally, flashes green when recording / streaming)

These lights can be turned off via the camera’s settings using the Hive app.

How is the camera powered?

The camera is mains powered.

In addition, the camera can be detached from the stand and with a 2100mAh Li-ion built-in rechargeable battery can provide up to 1 hour of recording time. When the battery is attached to the stand again, it will recharge.

Where should the camera be positioned or installed?

Try to avoid reflective surfaces impinging on the image (these may be different during the day and night) and try to avoid placing it in direct sunlight.

Avoid positioning next to lights, windows or mirrors as this will affect the night vision and be mindful of objects such as lamps or furniture impairing your view.

How is the camera mounted and secured?

The base simply attaches to the camera's magnetic pins. Easily clip them together and position on a table or window ledge. The magnetic base allows you to easily adjust the angle of the camera whilst holding your camera securely in place.

How does the camera connect to the app?

The camera connects to the Hive Cloud Services using your home WiFi. The Hive Cloud Services then manage the communication with the Hive app.

What happens if the camera loses its WiFi connection?

If your Hive View or Hive View Outdoor loses WiFi connectivity, the Hive app will send a notification telling you the camera is offline. Please note that the camera will not monitor or record events until your WiFi connection is restored.

If your camera was recording before it lost its WiFi connection then you'll be able to view this video clip in the Hive app, up until the moment the camera went offline.

Does the camera work with other Hive devices?

Yes, you can connect your camera with other Hive devices using the Hive app.

You can also operate your camera and other Hive devices with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, Siri Shortcuts and IFTTT.

Does this product work with voice control?

Yes, this Hive product can be used with voice control such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, Siri Shortcuts and IFTTT.

What devices can I get the Hive app on?

You can get the Hive app on many smartphones, tablets and the Apple Watch. iOS or Android devices must be running an up-to-date operating system.
