Switch lights on or off from anywhere

You can also use schedules and Actions to turn your E27/ B22 LED bulbs on and off when you want, without having to lift a finger.

Adjust the brightness from the app

Set them low in the morning for just enough light to find the bathroom. Dial them up in the evening when the sun goes down.

Save energy, save money

By controlling our long-lasting E27 / B22 LED bulbs remotely, you can make sure they're not left on and using energy.

Turn lights on automatically

Heading to the bathroom at night? Use Hive Actions to trigger your smart lights to come on automatically when your sensor detects you stepping into the hallway.

Turn things off from anywhere

Think you’ve left the hair straighteners on? Relax, you can double check and turn them off from wherever you are from the Hive app.

The centre of the Hive ecosystem

The Hive Hub is the heart of your smart home. It plugs into your broadband router and connects all your Hive devices wirelessly so they can be easily controlled remotely.

Frequently asked questions
icon-plus
What can I do with the light bulb?
icon-plus

You can turn lights on and off from your smartphone, set schedules, save money and so much more.

What does the Hive Plug do?
icon-plus

The Hive Plug lets you turn your electrical devices on or off remotely from your mobile, tablet or laptop as well as set schedules for when they come on. You can also turn your devices on and off manually at top of the plug.

If you are 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 Plug using your existing hub. If this is your first Hive product you will need to purchase a hub in order to set up your Hive Plug.

What does the Hive Motion Sensor do?
icon-plus

The Hive Motion Sensor detects motion in your home and sends an alert to your smartphone, tablet or Apple Watch. You can check into the app or online dashboard remotely at any time to see whether any motion has been detected.

With the Hive Motion Sensor you can also set schedules for when you want to receive these notifications so you only receive them when you are away from home.

If you are an existing Hive user then you won’t need any more kit and can set up your Hive Motion Sensor using your existing hub. If this is your first Hive product you will need to buy a Hive Hub in order to set up your Hive Motion Sensor.

What does the Hive Hub do?
icon-plus

The Hive Hub is the heart of your Hive smart home. It connects your devices to the internet, allowing you to control them remotely.

Why do I need a Hive Hub?
icon-plus

The Hive Hub connects your Hive devices to the Hive app using broadband. If the Hive Hub is not connected to your Hive devices you won't be able to control them remotely via the Hive app. If it’s not paired with a Hive Hub, Hive Active Heating will only work in standalone mode (offline control).

Hive View and Hive View Outdoor don't require a Hive Hub as their functions differ from all other Hive products.

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.

What are your delivery options?
icon-plus

Free standard delivery is included when spending over £50 (3 - 5 business days).

Order before 12:30pm Monday - Thursday and get next day delivery for £5.
