Avoid heating empty rooms

Never waste money heating an empty room. For example, set a schedule to keep your bedroom cool during the day and then warm up before you head to bed.

Room-by-room control with multiple Hive Radiator Valves

Get the temperature just right in every room by putting Hive Radiator Valves on all your main radiators. So you can warm up one room without overheating the rest of the house.

Heat on demand

Hive Radiator Valves work best with Hive Active Heating. Your radiator valves can automatically turn the heating on when they need to in order to keep that special room warm, even when your Hive thermostat is set low. But if you don't have a Hive thermostat, you can still use our radiator valves to keep rooms cool while you heat the rest of the house.

Control any room at any time

If you realise you’ve left the heating on in a room you don't need, just turn the radiator off via your Hive app.

Schedules for specific rooms

Set specific temperatures or schedules in different rooms to keep everyone comfortable and to avoid heating rooms when you know they’ll be empty.

No more guesswork

Set the exact temperature you want in degrees, rather than just selecting a setting between 1-5.

Open window detection

If a window’s been left open causing the temperature in the room to drop, your Hive Radiator Valve adjusts automatically.

Easy self-installation

If you already have thermostatic radiator valves, it's quick and easy to install Hive Radiator Valves yourself. Simply unscrew the existing head and replace it with a Hive Radiator Valve.

The Hive app uses helpful images to guide you through removing your old controls, selecting the correct adaptor for your radiator and getting your Hive Radiator Valve correctly installed.

Once installed, the Hive Radiator Valve takes a little time to learn about your radiator while it calibrates, then it will be good to go.

The centre of the Hive ecosystem

Hive Hub is the essential brains of the operation. It plugs into your broadband router and connects all of your Hive devices wirelessly so they can be easily controlled remotely.

Frequently asked questions
icon-plus
What does a smart thermostatic radiator valve (smart TRV) do?
icon-plus

A TRV controls the flow of hot water into an individual radiator. It can be used to manage how you heat an individual room or radiator within your home. With smart TRVs, like the Hive Radiator Valve, you can control them via an app and set up specific temperatures and schedules for each one you have installed throughout your house. This allows you to only heat rooms when you expect to be using them.

Do Hive Radiator Valves work with my existing Hive thermostat and hub?
icon-plus

Hive Radiator Valves require the current version of Hive Hub or Hub 360. The original Hive Hub 1 does not support Hive Radiator Valves.

More info >

Do Hive Radiator Valves require Hive Active Heating to work?
icon-plus

No. Hive Radiator Valves only require a Hive Hub and the Hive app and can work with your existing heating set-up.

However, without Hive Active Heating, they will only be able to control the heat from individual radiators while your heating is already on. And if you want to turn them up, they won't be able to override your current thermostat setting or schedule.

With Hive Active Heating, you can link your radiator valves to your thermostat so that the heating comes on automatically when a radiator needs heat.

More info

Do Hive Radiator Valves talk directly to my boiler?
icon-plus

No, your thermostat will still control your boiler.

If you have Hive Active Heating, you can use Hive Radiator Valves to override the thermostat and turn up the heating in one room of your house when the thermostat is set low.

How do I install a Hive Radiator Valve?
icon-plus

Hive Radiator Valves can be self-installed if you already have TRVs (thermostatic radiator valves) on your radiators. Simply unscrew your existing TRV head and replace it with a Hive Radiator Valve.

The Hive app uses helpful images to guide you step-by-step through removing your old controls, selecting the correct adaptor for your radiator and getting your Hive Radiator Valve correctly installed.

The installation process should take around 10-20 minutes to complete.

How do I know if my radiators will work with Hive Radiator Valves?
icon-plus

Hive Radiator Valves can be used with most water-based radiators (using gas or oil boilers). Replacing an existing TRV (a large, cylindrical valve with a numbered dial) on your radiator is straightforward; just unscrew your existing TRV, select the right adaptor and screw a Hive Radiator Valve in its place.

Your Hive Radiator Valves come with the two most common valve body adaptors, and other adaptors are available free of charge from Hive.

If you have older-style radiators with simple on/off valves (smaller valves without a numbered dial), installation is a bit more complicated and will require a heating professional - or someone

confident in fitting and plumbing a radiator - to assess what’s best for your home.

Remember that Hive Radiator Valves will not work with electric heating systems / electric radiators.

What happens if I only replace some of my TRVs with Hive Radiator Valves?
icon-plus

That’s all fine – in those rooms where you have installed a Hive Radiator Valve, you’ll be able to manage the temperature from the Hive app. Where you haven’t installed a Hive Radiator Valve, they’ll just carry on working like a normal radiator – controlled by your main thermostat and the dial setting on the radiator.

Can Hive Radiator Valves save me energy?
icon-plus

Yes, as you can set them up to only heat a room when it’s likely to be occupied. The best way to do this is to set a schedule for each room via the Hive app. You’ll save the most energy if you also keep the doors closed in rooms you don’t want to heat.

Once installed, will my Hive Radiator Valve work straight away?
icon-plus

Once installed, the Hive Radiator Valve takes a little time to learn about your radiator. While it calibrates, your radiator may warm up more slowly. Calibration normally completes within 24 hours when heating is in use. After this, it will be good to go.

While calibrating, your heating needs to be on. If you install your Hive Radiator Valve over the summer and your heating is off, it will start calibrating when you start to heat your home again.

Want to speed up the process? There’s a special calibration cycle available in the app that can do this for you.

When you send a temperature command from the app your Hive Radiator Valve may take a few minutes to respond. When in schedule mode, your radiators can take longer (15-25 minutes) to start warming up. This all helps save battery life and avoids any temperature overshoots.

How do I set up my Hive Radiator Valves if I want a room cooler than the rest?
icon-plus

Just install Hive Radiator Valves on the radiators in the room you’d like to keep cooler and set your target temperature. You can do that either on the Hive Radiator Valve itself or using the Hive app.

How do I set up my Hive Radiator Valves if I want one room warmer than all the others?
icon-plus
How do I set up my Hive Radiator Valves if I want one room warmer than all the others?

To make one room warm while keeping all other rooms cooler, you need to have Hive Radiator Valves on all your main radiators. You can then set one radiator to warm up while setting all the others to lower temperatures.

If you have any radiators without Hive Radiator Valves, they may also warm up whenever the heating comes on.

Can I install a Hive Radiator Valve in my bathroom?
icon-plus

Yes, you can install a Hive Radiator Valve in your bathroom so long as it is not in a position where it will get wet. Hive Radiator Valves are not waterproof and should never be submerged in water or installed in a location where they are likely to get splashed.

More info >

Does my Hive Radiator Valve work with other Hive devices?
icon-plus

Yes, you can connect your radiator valve with other Hive devices using Actions in the Hive app - for example you can boost the heating in a room when your Hive Motion Sensor detects movement. You can also operate your radiator valve and other Hive devices with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri Shortcuts and IFTTT.

What devices can I get the Hive app on?
icon-plus

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.
