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.
