Frequently asked questions
What does a Hive Window or Door Sensor do?

The Hive Window or Door Sensor alerts you if a window or door is opened or closed while you're out. You can log into the Hive app or online dashboard remotely at any time to see whether your windows or doors are currently open or closed.

With the Hive Window or Door Sensor, you can also set actions for when you want to receive these alerts, so you only get them when you are out of the home.

If you're an existing Hive user and have one or more products already then you won’t need any more kit and can set up your Hive Window or Door Sensor using your existing hub. If this is your first Hive product, you'll need to purchase a Hive Hub.
