Hive Plug

The Hive Active Plug is a smart plug that works like an adaptor. Simply plug it into your wall socket then plug your appliances into it as normal. Turn the iron off from wherever you are with a tap of the app. If you’re away, set your smart plug to turn your lamps on automatically to make it look like someone’s home.

Set up Hive Actions

Link your Hive Plug with other Hive devices using Hive Actions. So if your smart plug’s connected to the coffee machine, your Hive Motion Sensor can turn it on the moment you walk into the kitchen.
